…or “What I had to do for a silver medal”.
I’m the one being thrown.
The throws are, in order:
Uki-otoshi (“floating drop”)
Seoi-nage (“shoulder throw”)
Kata-guruma (“shoulder wheel”)*
Uki-goshi (“floating hip throw”)
Harai-goshi (“sweeping hip throw”)
Tsurikomi-goshi (“lifting-pulling hip throw”)
Okuri-ashi-harai (“sideways foot sweep”)
Sasae-tsurikomi-ashi (“blocking lifting-pulling foot throw”)
Uchi-mata (“inner thigh throw”)
Each one is performed right-handed and left-handed.
* Which impresses everyone, but really isn’t that bad of a landing, if you know what you’re doing.

Hey that was awesome guys sorry I couldn’t be at the tournament to help out I had dates mixed up. I’ll be back in April I enjoyed the class alot.
Cool! Congratulations, Pat. Any bruises?
No bruises, no. I hurt more after a practice, generally, than I did during the Real Thing. That last throw in particular, uchi-mata, can be a thump of a landing, but in the tournament it was the softest uchi-mata landing I’d had to that point.
Now I just want to do the kata as tori, the thrower.
