Shiho Nage: Throw towards the four corners
Shiho Nage means throw to the four corners or directions. Which means if you can do Shiho Nage well you can do Aikido.
By: Saito Morihiro Sensei
Surge forward to the front of your partner and slash his striking hand down with your opposite hand.
Then grasp his wrist with your slashing hand and swing it laterally across his torso, then bring it upwards in a circular motion as you turn on your heels and flip him down.
Grasp the wrist of your partner in such a way that the thumb side of his hand is led out in front of you.

Quote from Mike Jones Sensei
“This next technique is called Shiho-Nage, which translates as the four directions throw.
This is a wonderful technique to take a look at and see how the sword work that we do in Aikido translates directly to the movement that we use in open hand. We start with the.
One of the basic things that I need to consider always is to get offline and away from the attack.
I’m going to change my body 90 degrees, take the wrist, lift straight up in front of my face again like a sword, step through, turn and cut. Offline, lift, step through, and again like the sword, if I’m holding a sword in my partner’s hand here, you don’t cut with the handle of the sword.
You want to extend and cut with the tip of the sword, which we’re going to think about as my partner’s arm. So as you cut and extend out, it should bend your partner’s back and take her balance.
It should not be a throw where you just yank down and try and cut with the hand. Extend the elbow out and down.
As this begins to progress and you make the cuts happen a little bit faster, you’ll see how this changes the style a little bit.
To the side, lift and cut. Shihonage, four directions throw”.
