Hiji kime osae, catalog and consists of a technique that controls the balance of the attacker using the idea of wrapping his arm, blocking it with our body (the outer hand is in Nikyo’s grip, that is to say, thumb with thumb) and the other blocks Uke’s shoulder closing with the armpit to, from there, push in the direction of his shoulder and down bringing the tatami to Uke that will be face down.

Two forms of final control of Uke are usual:

  • The first is to move to Nikyo’s control.
  • And the second, placing Uke’s arm vertically and pressing towards his shoulder keeping the hand in a Nikyo grip.
