The attacker grabs for the victim's
right lapel. In this version of Kaitenage, the nage leads the forward attack by moving slightly off center towards
her left. Her weight shifts as she steps with left foot backwards. This takes the balance from the attacker.
The attack is handled with an ikkyo,
with the arm being led in a downward arc/circular direction with both
arms. In this graphic, the nage's right hand glides along the
attacker's arm. It flips over, leaving her palm making contact
with the uke's wrist. The uke is off balance, bent over.
The nage's left hand rests
on the uke's neck, but maintains the downward movement of the
Katatori Kaitenage, omote

As the movement ends, the
nage's left hand continues the circular movement by bringing the uke's
arm upward and over the back towards the other shoulder, while the
other hand drops the head down. This causes the attacker further
imbalance and he must fall.
