Re: Defining Kokyu

The Jo Trick:

Osensei holds one distal end of a jo and about four or five young men get on the side of the jo (at a perpendicular angle to Osensei) from the near end (next to Osensei) to the far end (the other distal end that Osensei is not holding) and attempt to push the jo from the side forward and away from them with both of their hands, bodies, and legs, etc. The jo will not budge until Osensei "releases" it - and the men go flying.
