Many judo techniques are defined as counters to attacks by uke (kaeshi-waza). However osoto-makikomi is the only one I'm aware of that is described as a combination or sequence of techniques (renzoku-waza): a soto- or uchi-makikomi following a failed osoto-gari/-otoshi/-guruma.1

Are there any other judo techniques which are defined as combinations of other techniques?

  1. "The final technique is soto-makikomi, but as it follows osoto-gari, the throw is called osoto-makikomi."

    I think the title is a bit misleading. You basically imply that the question was about classified techniques that work only as a finishing move of a combination. If that was true, I'd question the premise of the question, as this presumably isn't the case with o-soto-maki-komi even. Apr 11 at 10:28

    So the question is basically about special names for existing throws and its principles when applied as a follow-up technique on a failed or feinted different technique, like a de-ashi-barai, when used as a counter to de-ashi-barai is called trsubame-gaeshi although it technically is still a de-ash-barai?

  • @PhilipKlöcking yep exactly, except with combinations of techniques instead of counters to techniques. Apr 13 at 4:11
