In General I just found out! Entry Tools Rate This Entry

I just found out last class that kote-oroshi and kote-gaeshi are the same thing. Up till then I was under the impression that the difference was the direction that the torque of the wrist was applied. ie oroshi would be the wrist bent so fingers are pointing just outside the fore arm to cause uke to sit to ushiro-ukemi. Where gaeshi would be rotating the wrist to twist the fore arm to cause uke to go head over tea kettle break fall ukemi. (hows that for a technical term)

So those reading my last post wondering what the heck I was talking about I hope this explains it. If there are Japanese terms that differentiate what I have described above, by all means make comment.
