Tsukidashi, or the "frontal thrust out," is one of the more common winning techniques in sumo. The attacker forces his opponent backwards and out of the ring using a continuous arm thrusting motion. It is similar to the previously mentioned oshidashi ("frontal push out") except the attacker doesn't have to keep his hand on his opponent's body at all times.
