Yoko-Otoshi Made Simple

91

The Yoko-Otoshi is a Judo throw that isn’t seen as often as it ought to be in Jiu-Jitsu. The heavier divisions especially ought to be using this throw.

Here, Big Guy BJJ has modified the grips just slightly so that more weight can be put into the throw than what would normally be seen. By stepping off to the side and sitting all of your weight back, it becomes much easier to force your opponent to trip over your extended leg.
