Takato's Newaza

Takato does not do a lot of newaza -- probably because he prefers to throw his opponents -- but when he does, it is usually some variation of osaekomi. He is actually quite good at that and in particular, he has a unique turnover that ends up in ushiro-kesa-gatame. He can also do sankaku, but instead of a strangle, he prefers to end it with a hold down. You can say that Takato is very much an osaekomi player when it comes to newaza.
