Uchimata

Probably the most popular competition judo throw in existence - uchimata.  Some folks throw this as a leg sweep and some throw it as a hip throw.  Officially it is classed as an ashiwaza (a foot throw).  I've never been able to make much of this trying it as a foot throw (though I've seen people who can!)  I personally throw it as a variation of ukigoshi.  In any case, it is an excellent throw!
