Japanese drop morote-seoi specialists: Ebinuma

Japan's Double World Champion Masashi Ebinuma has many techniques in his arsenal. One of his most powerful throws is the drop morote-seoi-nage.

In a recent posting, I showed how Hiroaki Hiraoka managed to throw from an extreme kenka-yotsu situation (right vs left). In this clip below, you'll see how Ebinuma deals with an extreme kenka-yotsu situation (left vs right)... by doing a double-stab drop morote-seoi. The first attempt fails to get in deep enough underneath but right after he gets up off his knees, he drops down again, and this time, it's deep enough!

He drops twice in quick succession to get the right position.
