Cool rokkyo

My dojo doesn't practice beyond gokkyo but my sensei has demonstrated rokkyo a few times, which is pretty much what has been described in previous posts.

My impression is that it is similar to the elbow locking technique but with nage going to the ground with uke. My sensei says the name is derived from the body positions of both nage and uke looking like the kanji for the number "6".

Cheers!

Ken
