The same attack by Uke.

Tori, instead of pivoting to the left, pivots to the right and with his right forearm pushes Uke's right arm upwards.

Then he slips his right forearm from under and inwards in the hollow of Uke's elbow and his right deltoid presses strongly against Uke's right wrist.

Tori's left forearm symmetrically completes the blockage against his chest of Uke's elbow and forearm. Then Tori leans forward and twists Uke's elbow backwards which enables him to overturn Uke on to the ground on his back.

Tori should always conclude these parries by disarming Uke. The same remark applies to the defence against a knife.
