    It is a throw. JJJ or Judo samething. It is a throwing technique not a sweep

    Osoto-gari means Large outer reap (not sweep). Just look at the youtube clips. It is a throw just by looking t the video you can dissect the movements and see it is a throw. The leg is really used as a pivot point or fulcrum for the throw.
