Re: Unusual feet movement in morotedori

Interesting to see as its footwork I've used for some time. I find it particularly effective if uke is committed to the "grab " in an attempt to apply a pin. It then means you're not stopping their momentum but just redirecting. It does present some risk - as there is a point of potential unbalance for tori - as i discovered when a 110kg close protection worker got me to the floor on one occasion but generally it works well.
