Babamuratova's Standing Ippon Seoi-Nage

Babamuratova's Standing Ippon Seoi
Standing ippon-seoi is not commonly seen and is, in fact, very rare amongst female players. But Babamuratova (TKM) does a picture perfect version of it here.

Babamuratova (blue) grabs hold of uke's left lapel while keeping control of her right arm.

She lifts upwards with her right arm as she lets go of her right hand grip and steps in with her left leg to initiate the attack. It is a well-coordinated entry involving three actions: right and left arm as well as left leg.

She enters just like Koga would, with her driving (left) leg inserted deeply in between uke's legs.

She begins the lift by pulling her opponent forwards while bending her body. Notice how her driving leg is still straight. This is how Koga does it too.

She collapses her left knee to aid with the descent. Koga has been known to do this on occasions as with her bronze medal match in the 1987 Essen World Judo Championships.

At this point all she has to do is rotate uke over.

With the rotation complete, uke is flat on her back. Ippon!
