Re: Nikyo or Ikkyo or something Else?
The initial take down in aikikai dojos can be very similar looking between ikkyo omote and nikyo omote depending on the attack (especially a grab). The pin will distinquish the two. kote mawashi is a name used for a wrist exercise we use (undo) and is the position used for the wrist in nikyo. My instructor's nikyo omote is significantly different.
