Takato Photo Collection - Part 2 (David Finch Photographer)

Takato overwhelmed at winning gold in Rio 2013

A good look at Takato's kouchi-gari, which is one of his tokui-waza.

Here he does the same technique but with a cross-grip instead.

This is how the finishing of his yoko-sutemi (side takedown) looks like.

This is how the start of his utsuri-goshi looks like. You can call it Part 1.

This is how the second part looks like. It's a very unusual technique.

Sometimes he can pull off a surprise, like this ura-nage.

He loses a tooth but wins a bronze. Not bad.
