Hi everyone

I was just wondering if anyone else had any techniques that they favour/prefer to use in jyu waza or just techniques that you feel your better at performing

Personally, I like using Shiho nage and Kote geashi as i find them easy to do and it seems to come naturaly to carry out either

I love irimi into anything,
I also enjoy those techniques that just come... and it's never any particular one--I'm just amazed that I can actually pull a few off here and there without thinking. Thinking too much hurts.

I loooove kokyu nage! :D

Irimi and Kokyu Techniques. I find that they both are very similar in shape, however they have opposite directions. One technique can be the other as well depending on the moment of the technique execution.

When fighting or sparring with boxers, karate, muay thai, kung fu (external art) practioners I always end up adding Atemi Wazas in the above techniques.

The bane of my Aikido life used to be Shihonage. As i've grown and matured I have begun to understand and execute it better. I now find that I have an affinity for the technique that was so hard for me to "get".

Sayonage is definitely one of my favorites too.

it's iriminage and kotegaeshi for me :D

Iriminage Manyways :D

I like them shaken, not stirred -- and that horizontal position that Uke takes, in midair, to avoid having his/her head forcibly removed, is really cool, too! :circle: :square: :triangle:

Variants of sumi otoshi are my favorites .....I love to put their balance "in the hole" so to speak.:)

Probably a toss up between Nikkyo and Kotegaeshi, especially the variant where you put your hips through and behind uke and take them right over the top of you. I never get bored of that. And a good nikkyo is so satisfying.

Nikkyo and Sankyo.

yonkyo because people have a really hard time doing it to me, but it's really easy for me to do to them. :)

I like kote geashi because of the way it felt the first time I learned it and had it done to me. I wrote in a little aikido "journal" I had been keeping (to keep my techniques straight since I didn't understand the Japanese) that the pin felt like my arm had been turned into a spear that was thrust into the mat which some how immobilized a good 80-90% of my body. So yeah, fun times:)
Shi ho nage is also fun because I like to spin. No fancy back story with that one
