The Single Back Throw is a Physical Martial Arts Technique that involves grappling.


This technique can be used defensively and offensively by the user. The technique is specialized in taking advantage of the impulsiveness of a target. When the target lunges their arm at the practitioner, it grants the user to grip the wrist and the end of the shoulder. The user uses the target's weight to their advantage and uses it to slam a target onto the ground. Gokū uses this against Botamo to eliminate him from the Hakaishin Tournament.[1] Caulifla would display this technique later against a member of the Sadal army.[2]


  • The technique adapts a real-life Japanese throw technique, Ippon seoi nage (一本背負投; Literally meaning "Single Back Throw"), was utilized in many real life martial arts, such as Kodokan Judo. It is among one of several real-life techniques used in the Dragon Ball series.
