Bridge or No Bridge - Version 2

The white player is clearly trying to avoid conceding a score but is he bridging? At first glance, it looks like it. But if you watch in slow motion, you'll notice that although his legs make it look like he's bridging, he doesn't arch his body nor does he pivot on his head. It is because of this that his movement is not considered a bridge. As such, there is no awarding of ippon to his opponent. Instead, the score is yuko.
