The Koshuto (虎襲倒) is one of Chun-Li's throws introduced in Street Fighter II.

Chun-Li using Koshuto against Cammy.

Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) near an opponent. Chun-Li performs a fake strike, getting the opponent to put their guard up. As Chun-Li rotates, she takes a step past her opponent. She then uses her forearm to perform a quick takedown throw.

This move is good way for Chun-Li to reset the neutral game. Landing the Koshuto puts the opponent in mid-range. This will allow Chun-Li to follow up with long distance pokes, like Tsuitotsuken or Yokusenkyaku. She can also mixup pokes with throws and shimmies to open up her opponent. In order to get in on her opponent and inflict some damage, she has to utilize every move she has at her disposal, including her throws.
