    I’d agree with zegrapplez terminology, although I’ve never actually seen a judoka go for this particular takedown. I use it a fair bit, but I originally learned it in mande muda silat. Never got it to work until i learned to armdrag properly though

    gari is a sweeping or reaping action. gake is blocking action. since he’s trapping the foot/blocking it, rather than sweeping it in a direction, it’s an arm drag to kouchigake.

    the double leg style grip is actually much more effective, stronger structurally than keeping the sleeve grip
