Nagashi uke is wado's characteristic

what is nagashi uke?

Basically any Uke Waza can be a Nagashi Uke.

However, when talking about Nagashi Uke, the most common are Shuto Nagashi Uke, Haishu Nagashi Uke and Jodan Nagashi Soto Uke (Jodan Harai Uke). 

When doing any kind of Nagashi Uke, don't 'Nagashi' too much. Meaning that you don't have to follow the opponents attack more than necessary.

nagashi uke ippon kumite

The advantage of this Ippon Kumite is the use of Neko Ashi Dachi. Naturally, your front foot will follow the twisting movement of your upper body which makes it easier for practise. It allows you to rotate your body really well and is especially effective if you want to use your body more instead of just moving your arm.

explanation

A common mistake after Nagashi Uke is to grab and then do nothing. Do this instead to stay ahead of your opponent.
