Re: koshinage (hip throws)

This a question is for all you tall people out there. I seem to have an aweful time getting low enough for hip throws.
It is a hard throw for tall people, you might want to try a variation. This is why Judo has so many similar hip throws, not every body types is suited for a particular techniqe.

Go to, each image links to a short movie clip of the throw.
and look at some of the other hip throws. A few variations I would suggest are:

1) Uki Goshi
2) Harai-goshi
3) Koshi Garuma
