Re: Nikyo or Ikkyo or something Else?

Hmm. I've had former aikidoka do what they refered to as ``Ikkyo'' to me; it always involves bending the elbow in a way it doesnt go. Those same folks apply ``nikkyo ura'' if i grabe the lapel of their gi. If they do a cross handed grab, they also refer to it as nikkyo.

So my question is, is Ikkyo a subset of Nikyo? or is control of the elbow the aim of Nikyo too? Or am i missing the point completely?
