A specific throwing technique (to cause an opponent to fall to the ground under the control of the thrower) developed to be used in the sport of Judo that involves the thrower to sacrifice his/her body to the ground in a rolling action during the throw.
The throw is not part of the original set of Judo techniques originally developed by Jigoro Kano. The only known practitioners of this technique learned it from the technique's creator, or one of his students.
Judo practitioners might consider the technique to be a combination/cross between yoko-gake, sumi-gaeshi, and uchi-maki-komi. Other practitioners may see a relationship to other known and accepted judo techniques. While the technique is not currently recognized as a legal throw for competition, there is no aspect of the throw, when done correctly, that violates the current International Judo Federation rules on acceptable actions, and does not contain any action prohibited by said body.
Credit for its creation goes to the Huntsville Judo Club of Huntsville, AL, its instructors, and students (past and present) who have worked diligently to fine-tune the mechanics and physics of the throw.
