Morote-uke - "reinforced" technique for dealing with a strong grip.
- Opponent is holding your left forearm or wrist in a strong grip with his right hand.
- The cross stroke from right to left of your right arm grabs the opponent's elbow.
- Rather than pulling, the left hand is placed adjacent to your right elbow with the opponent still gripping your wrist. This bends his elbow to 90° and provides leverage.
- Lunge forward with your right leg forward and bring both arms together across from left up to right. This causes the opponent to rotate anti-clockwise and bend over. Still gripping your wrist.
- The rotation (along with the following gedan-barai) will pull your left wrist out the opponent's grip.
- The rotation of the body frees your left hand from the opponent's grip. You still have your opponent's elbow in your grip.
- The upsweep of the left hand gedan-barai grabs the opponent's hair or collar.
- The downsweep of the gedan-barai and rotation pulls the opponent over backwards.
- The opponent is left at your feet, right elbow in your right hand and head or collar in your left.
