What I liked about the throw was the fact that it allowed me to throw an opponent over with varying degrees of force. If they were very violent I would throw them heavily so that they could not get back up again. If they were not so dangerous I could just tumble them over and control their fall so that, although they were on their back and under my control, they were not injured.

This does two things; it brings his right leg forward (if it wasn’t already forward) and it forces him to try and pull back up again. When he does I will resist initially to make him think that I am trying to pull him over, then I will suddenly relax and let him pull back up. As he pulls I will steal the energy that this creates and drive him backwards with my strong right arm.
