In the group of hand throws (Te waza) techniques are included, where the partner will fall with the aid of TORI´s hands. The principles of "tilting" and "pulling" will be applied here:
For each of the two principles are the hands of TORI the main point of contact with UKE. During the execution there are no more points of contact between UKE and TORI to preserve the feature of the hand throws.
In the Kano system the group of the shoulder throws (Kata waza) is not implemented, they added them to the area of hand throws.
