Takato's Uchimata

When you think of Takato's judo, uchimata is probably not amongst the list of techniques that would come to mind. He doesn't do it all that much but he does have a pretty good uchimata. Actually he has several variations of uchimata, which is quite surprising considering it's not a technique that he attacks with so much.

He has a version in which he turns away from the opponent, similar to he way Jeon Ki-Young does it. He also has a hop in version. And he has a very unusual low, spinning version of uchimata which I'd never seen anybody else do before. Check out some of his uchimatas below.
