For one... kokyu nage isnt really that exciting of a technique in the first place .. all u do is turn and throw.
Any technique can be reduced to that simplistic, mechanistic level if that is all you are looking for.
Every time a person attacks me has the potential to pose a different issue of energy, timing, intent, etc AND offer me a range of options of to focus on (energy, timing, intent; hands, feet, hips; depth, size, power, softness).....
yeah, I'm with those who say that going to a seminar and sitting and listening for an hour can be pretty boring :-)
