Confuse an Opponent
A Judoka who attacks with Uchi Mata is usually fairly confident that their attack will produce some success or at least that they will be able to escape again quickly. However, when up against someone who understands this technique, to find oneself suddenly flat on your back, usually with little understanding of how one got there, is a bit of a shock.
Uchi Mata Sukashi relies upon the speed and momentum of the opponent attempting Uchi Mata. If the Uchi Mata attack is lacking in 'commitment' then the Sukashi will not work. This is why it is often hard to practice at the club. Uki must be fully committed in his Uchi Mata for Tori to learn the Sukashi.
