Tenchi Nage is also known as the Heaven and Earth throw due to the fact that in the throw, one hand will move upward towards heaven while the other hand will move downward toward the earth. This technique allows Nage to affect the center of gravity of the uke and at the same time unbalance him with a minimum of effort.
