Euan Burton takes you through the basics of sumi gaeshi
A right handed fighter, Burton’s Sumi gaeshi comes from a left handed lapel grip, with his right hand taking a cross lapel grip.
Burton’s arm wrap variation of Sumi gaeshi perfectly complements his forwards Makikomi techniques.
Burton has a very unusual Yoko sumi gaeshi, which he uses when his opponent tries to defend his standard Sumi gaeshi.
