Practice judo while killing time, part 3

When I first began learning hip throw ideas, we were always taught doing them as uke is traveling forward. But once you get fairly proficient with that idea, you can start looking at throwing them from a number of different conditions.

Basically, you can throw a person as they're coming forward, as they're going backward, and even going side to side and circling. This particular solo drill helped me practice the fundamental set-up for any advancing hip throw ideas, or reaps like harai goshi (a personal favorite) or uchi mata, or even tai otoshi (another favorite) and ashi guruma.
