Executed by pressing Light Punch and Light Kick, (the throw command) and pushing backwards near an opponent. Sagat first grabs his opponent by the head with both of his hands. He then delivers a knee strike to his opponent's midsection, knocking the wind out of them. Keeping his hands around their head, Sagat steps aside and swings his opponent around to the opposite side. Finally, he delivers a second knee strike to their solar plexus while releasing his opponent's head, launching them in the air and dropping them on their stomach.


While Sagat's game plan is to keep his opponent at bay with his mid-range normals and projectiles, his throws are essential to break through their defenses. While Tiger Swing deals the same damage as his forward throw, it inflicts more stun. His back throw also creates separation between his opponent. This allows Sagat to continue zoning out his opponent with his Tiger Shots or Grand Tiger Shots. However, the trade-off using his back throw is that Sagat doesn't get much okizeme. While he can potentially close the distance with EX Tiger Knee, it still leaves Sagat negative on block.
