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.
