Aikido Oshi-Taoshi

Aikido Technique – Oshi-Taoshi or Push Down

This page provides you with instructions for the Aikido Oshi-Taoshi technique (also known as push down). This is a basic technique used in Aikido. Oshi-Taoshi is also part of Aikido Randori-No kata, one of the Aikido katas.

Elbow control techniques are an essential part of Aikido’s focus on controlling and/or redirecting an opponent. For other Aikido techniques (i.e. Aikido wrist locks, elbow locks, counters or dislocations), visit Black Belt Wiki’s main Aikido Techniques section.
