Kokyunage, with it's over 80 variations requires skill and a lot practice to execute properly. I would like to know from others, what is your favorite Kokyunage technique and why?

There is a great demonstration from Sensei Takafumi Takeno. His demonstrations starts at about 2:31 on the video. For those who understand Japanese, it would be great if you could give some explanation (translate).


Here is a list of ways that is can be applied.

1> Shomenuchi
2> Yokomenuchi
3> Katatedori
4> Ryotedori
5> Morotedori
6> Sodeguchidori
7> Sodedori
8> Munadori
9> Katadori
10> Tsuki
11> Kosadori
12> Ryoerijime
13> Ushiro ryotedori
14> Ushiro ryokatadori
