Thumbs down Re: Article: What's in a Name? by Michael J. Hacker

I generally translate kokyű nage as "I don't quite know what to call this technique."
This may be the most brilliant statement on the subject of kokyu nage I've ever seen. I find myself giving various forms unofficial subtitles, like:
  • "basic" kokyu nage
  • "no retreat" kokyu nage
  • "almost shiho" kokyu nage
  • "underarm" kokyu nage

All of which are descriptive, sort of.
