What is Ai-yotsu?

The Aiyotsu is the basic Judo fighting stance, with both opponents using their same hand (right or left) as their Hiki-te (Pulling hand). A stance in which both contestants grasp the opponent’s left sleeve with their right hand is called a “right grip”, and the reverse is called a “left grip”. Simply, it is the same grip used by both persons, either right or left.
