That Throw from Jitte

This morning I was on FaceBook looking at the page of Martial Artist. And saw the most interesting short video of examples of use of various kata movements as throwing techniques. And then finding similar throws used in competition, judo, wrestling even Sumo competition. Very nice work.


One of the throwing techniques shown I believe came from the kata Jitte. But there are parallels to similar movements in Isshinryu Karates Wansu Kata.
The section of the Kata

The Throw

Then used in Competition against a resisting opponent.
