Shiho Gatame

(Counter throw and apply smother hold)

  1. Uke attempts to throw Seoi Goshi
  2. Counter with Ushiro Goshi and take uke to the ground
  3. Grab uke’s throat with your right hand to hold his face straight up; your position is at uke’s head, facing his feet
  4. Fall onto uke so your belly covers his face
  5. Reach down and grab uke’s obi, pinning his upper arms to his sides
  6. While pressing down in this smother position, spread out and keep up on your toes, ready to move with uke as he struggles to escape
