Takato's awesome sode
Sode-tsuri-komi-goshi is one of Naohisa Takato's tokui-waza.
In my last posting, I showed a clip of Takato attempting
sode time and again against South Korea's Jang Jin-Min
and failing each time. Sometimes, even the experts fail. But when his sode works, such as
in his match against Sweden's Olle Sundstrom in the 2012
Moscow Grand Slam (where he threw his opponent twice with the same throw) he really makes them airborne. What a throw!
