Takato's Sode

Takato's fourth tokui waza (the others being side takedown, utsuri-goshi and kouchi-gari) is sode-tsuri-komi-goshi.

It's quite a traditional technique although Takato's right hand pulls his opponent's left sleeve under and across as opposed to lifting up and across (which is how sode is traditionally done). In some ways, his sode actually looks like a kind of seoi-nage.
