The Sasae Tsuri Komi Ashi is one of my absolute favorite Judo techniques! This is a great video for any beginner looking to add this foot sweep to their game or any seasoned Judo player looking to perfect their form. The Hiza Guruma is another Judo foot sweep commonly mistaken for Sasae Tsuri Komi Ashi. While they do look very similar when performed at a fast pace, they are actually two totally different techniques. Sasae is a very low risk takedown and if performed correctly will land you directly on top of your opponent in either side control or knee on belly position. What Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner or Judo player doesn’t like having these dominant positions over their opponent from the start?  Take a few minutes to check out this video.. You’ll be glad you did!
