Written Instructions

1. To perform a hip throw, you must be side on with your opponent, your opponent being the larger line or the bottom of the "T" shape in this position, and you being the top of the "T" shape in this position (a little like the slightly weakened position your opponent is in now compared to yourself).
2. Next, you must step the leg that is behind your opponent in front of your opponent and turn away from your opponent (as if they were taking your back). However, if you are quick at this maneuver, this will not happen. Now, grab your opponent's left arm if your right leg was behind them, and vice versa.
3. Finally, make sure that your hips are inside your opponent and weaken your opponent and lift them up. Quickly, tilt your head to the right if you are grabbing their left arm and vice versa, whilst pulling the arm that you are grabbing towards the direction of their arm.
