Note that the entrance to
the attack is an irimi. The attacker's strike is deflected and
redirected in the footwork and bodywork of the irimi - as the nage
shifts the movement towards the right, and then drops. The attacker's
balance is lost, and another entrance is made to disable and bring him
to the ground.
