(demonstrated here by Shaun Hoddy Sensei)
Focusing on keeping good posture, all the way through.
Avoid pulling or pushing using upper body strength by simply keeping the arms extended as in the “unbendable arm” and use the whole body and the correct angle to break uke’s balance.
Defence against grabs
Single handed grab (both cross and opposite grab), using nikkyo or kote mawashi
double handed grab to the chest or shoulders, using a simple hip turn or cutting down and stepping back.
