Florian's Ura-Nage

Florian Ura-Nage
Florian (ROU) does a nice rotating ura-nage that is almost a yoko-guruma.

Florian puts her left arm around uke, a sure sign that an ura-nage is coming.

Even though uke has not attacked yet, Florian takes the initiative and swings herself around in an anti-clockwise direction. You could say it is a form of direct-attack ura-nage.

With the momentum in full swing, she then starts to arch backwards.

With total commitment, Florian flings uke backwards. Notice how Florian's body is almost horizontal.

She rotates her body as they both come crashing to the mat, to ensure that she lands on top.

Uke lands flat on her back. Ippon!
