A Series Of Typical (Simple) Throws Similar To Shuai-Chiao (Chinese/Mongolian Wrestling):

Indo-Tibetan Lion's Roar! Martial Arts share in-part a common ancestry with  Mongolian Wrestling.  A significant difference is in the degree of rotational force production used on contact with the opponent.  In the Indo-Tibetan tradition, this force is very significantly ramped up, thru whole-body dynamic linkages.   What can appear as simple throws, then become complex accelerators, with little chance for a successful break-fall, particularly on concrete.

These pictures are uncaptioned.  Viewers are asked to consider the fact that concrete is an unforgiving surface, so the rotational arcs and accelerations were toned down.  Some pictures also show some of the upward-spiralling engagements against the opponents arms, which position the opponent for a throw by breaking structure and alignment.

The Indo-Tibetan tradition does not require 'jacketed wrestling' (as in Judo form example) styles of contact for throws.   Contact surfaces rotate, are multiple, do not heavily commit, so that they can rapidly re-position or differentially apply.  The ability to switch or reverse, is central in this kind of grappling Art.

Opponents are thrown against the fulcrum of a lock or their bodyweight is dropped thru the stressed joint(s) causing much more damage.  Throws are meant to be non-compliant and the opponent is not intended to be allowed the luxury of a break-fall option.
