I don't think Hiza Guruma would translate that well into no-gi tbh, I believe it would look more like tighter version of De Ashi Barai.

When I suggested Hiza, I wrote it purely from a judo point of view, to be practised with a gi.
Whatever the head and arm throw is called in Judo.
i thought that, farside underhook and a wrist/tricep control, but i like the idea of a shallower underhook putting the ridge of the hand in the armpit, you could probably get the underhook first, then switch to the armpit control to execute the throw.
might be having a little play with that next week.
5 Judo throws for average person
Thanks for the informative post. Im very tall and quite skinny. I had my first judo session yesterday and Ive been doing BJJ for a year. I was considering asking for thoughts on throws for lanky guys in the basic section since I have little luck with some of the throws that require me to get very low. Ill research the suggested techniques.
