Sagurite – searching hand. This technique is from kata Passai and it is aimed at attackers eyes. Parry with rear hand and poke with front hand because front hand can cover more distance. Use neko ashi dachi to align your body and cover. Eye-poke here is used as shock technique and after that you proceed with Udewa, grab head manipulate opponents neck and takedown. Funakoshi used term “Udewa” for this throw and I like that name. In Shotokan Basai Dai sagurite is replaced with generic shuto uke and bunkai is lost.
