Uzbekistan's Sharafuddin Lutfillaev is making waves with his dynamic throws such as this kosoto-/ura-nage hybrid which he did in his opening match at the 2015 Astana World Judo Championships.

Here is the breakdown of the technique, step-by-step.

The throw begins with what could be considered a kind of kosoto-gake.

It quickly starts to transform into an ura-nage with the lifting of his left knee and with his back starting to arch towards the rear.

By now, it's clearly an ura-nage. Notice how high he has lifted his left knee and how fully committed he is to arching backwards.

With his left leg fully lifted and the full weight of his body pulling to the rear, his opponent is now airborne.

A smashing Ippon!
