In Japanese budō, tori (取り) is the name given to a person executing techniques during practice with a partner. The role of tori is contrasted with that of uke, whose role is to attack tori and provide a body to receive the techniques.

In aikidō, the alternative terms nage (投げ, 'thrower') and shite (仕手, 'doing hand') also exist.
