Ko Uchi Gari - Minor Inner Reaping Throw

Here's our sequence we use to teach a basic Ko Uchi Gari. We find that learning foot sweeps in sequences make them easier to digest and easier to teach.

Here are the cues we're looking for when teaching Ko Uchi Gari:
  • step to the top of the L
  • 2nd foot steps and we pull our partner forward with our sleeve grip
  • lapel hand makes a "shield" motion keep our partner close
  • pop the foot stepping forward with the bottom of our foot in the direction of their toes
