Training Notes How To Osoto Nage

Leg sweeps are a very quick and effective way to take your training partner to the ground, and usually from there we apply do gaeshi to turn them over onto their stomach for a better position for gyaku dori.
When sweeping the leg it is easy to get caught up in the power of the technique and forget about that in the moment of being taken down your training partner can drop a bit ahead of the sweep using their own body weight to drag you down also by holding on with their hands to your own body or arms.
This type of reversal in itself can be very effective, allowing yourself to be thrown in order to throw. In terms of training notes, keeping your own back straight, and your hips grounded will give you the spring to prevent this from happening when you perform the sweep.
