In General Splitting uke; not as gross as it sounds... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #33 New 09-24-2003 10:22 AM
Last night's class (Tuesday 9/23/03) went very well. We worked on a variation of kokyo nage that had a feel similar to sokomen irimi nage in how we split uke's posture. It was neat both working on it as nage and experiencing it as uke. This particular series of kokyo nage techniques were very gentle which is in contrast to how we perform a lot of our techniques. Especially with our pinning techniques, we tend to lead with strong atemi as part of our blending movement, but kokyo nage techniques in general, and last night's in particular, tend to be very soft so that uke hardly feels thrown until he hits the ground.

This variation we practiced last night is, essentially, new to our dojo. Our instructor has spent some time looking at tapes of Toyoda sensei (the late head of the AAA) and recalling things he'd learned when visiting Matsuda sensei's dojo near New York City. Matsuda sensei is (I think) head of the AAA eastern region. It's a good feeling to try something new.
