On Monday night, trained with ACNJ. Arrived a little late, but they were very welcoming. A yudansha named Scott helped get me acclimated and take care of the mat fee. Got to train with him most of the night and was invited back for as much of the week as I can make. I was tense from the travel, being in a strange place, and searching for the dojo, so I never really felt like I settled down and relaxed, but it didn't interfere as much as I thought it might. My hamstrings tightened up and caused some pain, so seiza was no fun, but other than that it was a good session. Scott was really fun to train with, and some of the mudansha were a lot of fun too.

cross-hand grasp, ikkajo osae
cross hand grasp, iriminage several variants including some koshinage. Also did an interesting ikkajo throw (pull uke in vertical elbows, back pivot with elbow atemi, (body change), control elbow, ikkajo nage.
Kokyu ho at the end of practice with Scott was really nice.

Should go back Tuesday night and Wednesday night.

My thanks to Gregg O'Conner Sensei and all of his students for such a warm welcome.

I think that was just coincidence. In the Yoshinkan, cross-hand grasp is ayate mochi. I think Aikikai tend to say kosa tori. But I can't really say outside of the Yoshinkan context. Best, Ron

I notice that you use japanese terminology for most things except cross hand grab. I have heard that attack called by different sensei, "kosi", "kosi tori", "kosa mochi", "dosokyu". Since i am interpreting these from spoken commands, they call could be wrong but I wonder which seems practical?
