The Uchi Mata or Inner Thigh throw is considered one of the "Big" throws in judo. One of the top scoring throws in international level competition. It is also especially good against an opponent in a bent over, defensive stance like we see in bjj competition.
To start the video, Prof. Henrique gets the standard sleeve, collar grip and enters with his hips lower than the opponent's hips to get underneath their center of gravity.
Note the powerful backward kicking action of Prof. Henrique's leg which elevates the opponent's hips up and over to complete the throw.
