(One hand grab wrist and neck choke from behind)


The attack is characterized by the victim being arm choked and the wrist being grabbed - all from behind. 

The nage starts by drops her center (one-point) for stability. As she drops she pulls the attacker's elbow downward while placing her chin in the way of the choke. As her body drops downward, she extends her right arm in front (as in tekubi joho undo exercise) and turns her hips. Her hand keeps pulling her attacker's elbow away from him. The movement nears completion, as the attacker's balance is soon diminished, and he falls to the mat.

Note in the animation below that you can avidly see the attacker being stretched with the nage's hip turning.

The main points in this technique is to maintain a good stance, use your hips and keep turning, and drop your one-point.
