Sorry. Not sumi otoshi, a kokyu nage similar to ikyo - throwing to the front.

Hi, David,

We in the ASU fold aren't real strong on the terminology of aikido. In John's dojo, SUMI OTOSHI throws to the front. This is what I mean by the term, too. That's different than the way that, say Mifune Kyuzo's did, though. Both do throw to A corner...
