In General Teaching koshi nage Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #13 New 10-04-2003 06:03 PM
I don't teach koshi nage very often: I'm just not all that comfortable with it. Still, yesterday it sort of 'popped up' in the flow of the techniques and I found myself focusing on it. The idea I'd most like to get across when teaching koshi nage is that koshi is continuous with other Aikido techniques. That is, when people go to do a hip throw, they almost always approach it differently than other throws (which may be because we don't do them as often as we should and it may not). I like to show how there is a continuum between a regularly throw and a full koshi, and along the continuum there are different degrees of allowing your hips to unbalance and unweight uke. I find that this is easy to demonstrate, but not always easy for the students to grasp, so I'm still working on it.
