Swinging Gate

Swinging Gate One Person

Reference: Swinging Gate

The situation where one grabs one's partner and pulls to increase the power of the strike is also a Swinging Gate. One thinks of this as not letting the partner escape, or pulling the partner in, but Nage is also anchoring Nage's spin so that Nage can deliver more power.

Movie of Partner Swinging Gate.
