Re: Defining Kokyu

Here's my lame attempt...

How about it's aligning your right hand, elbow, hips, hara, (right) knee and foot in a structure that makes it possible to use the ground force to transmit "power". The movement is like fune-kogi undo and identical to a jo tsuki.

The other part of the "trick" has to do with the other person's body alignment, and where their vertical stability is weakest, only that the trick is transmitting the power thru their elbow to their center and out their right knee in a spiral.
