Sanbon Kumite Chudan Uke 7 – OTOSHI UKE

discover the principle and examples of otoshi uke

Otoshi refers to all acts in a downward direction. To the dropping movement of your body or arm for example.

In other words, otosu is the principle of downward movement. Therefore, the meaning and – more importantly – feeling, is much more deep then just the Kanji’s translation. Otosu is also an important aspect of internal movement, as you should drop the body internally on impact. This creates heaviness in techniques without having to rely on muscular power.

Otoshi Uke is terminology used to indicated dropping. It is not strictly a specific technique that is referred to.
