Takato's Reverse Seoi

The reverse seoi began as a South Korean phenomenon with Choi Min-Ho as its most famous proponent. He was seen doing it as early as 2003. The technique took some time to migrate over to Japan but by around 2010, many Japanese players began to adopt it. It was so popular, it seemed like every non-heavyweight player had a version of reverse seoi in their repertoire.

Takato is no exception. Although he doesn't do it all that often, he does attempt reverse seoi. It's not his strongest throw and although he often manages to unsettle his opponents with reverse, he seldom scores with it. Here are some examples.
