My usual progression is a Fallaway Slip Pivot-Closed telemary-Throwaway

or Chasse to R-Oversway

I am wondering if the term "throwaway oversway" is a misnomner. I mean, can one do an oversway from a throwaway position. I don't think so.

No, its not a misnomer.. the term T/away indicates that the lady has created an extended line, thru the foot to the shldr, and the " shaping" relates to the sway part of the exercise.

Scriveners term is much more alliterative " Press down "

Johnpower. It is possible to do a Throwaway from an Oversway. I dont think it would be recomended that a Oversway be performed after the Throwaway Position has been found.If you want to enlarge your collection of moves. Exit the Throwaway by the lady bringing her LF which is behind to the RF . The man the natural opposite.Turn the lady a fraction clockwise untill she is able to move her RF behind .The man does a Lunge to his right. This is called a Wrong Foot Lunge. It can be seen there is a slight simularity to the Throwaway for the lady being that in both cases a foot goes to her rear. Now you need a Telespin to exit. The man must let beat one go past before moving. The lady uses beat one. Good Luck.
