One more illusory technique. Ikkyo is much more efficient.
Maybe you should mention this to Alex (of the "Defending against aikido" thread).

We do this technique also, especially in tantodori. Our syllabus seems to give three alternative names, udehishigi/ hijikimeosae/ rokkyo, also called "terrible elbow lock" when people get confused with all the names - it sounds funnier in Dutch...
