Re: Nikyo or Ikkyo or something Else?

Looks more like Ikkyo to me....however I wonder at what part of the overall technique was the photo taken.
Ikkyo Irimi would be my answer if nage walked uke forward from this point and applied the Ikkyo pin.
Nikyo Irimi would be my answer if uke was permitted to get back up and nage repositioned the wrist/elbow/shoulder to apply nikyo and take uke back to the floor.
Aikido can be tricky. You may want to look at the overall technique instead of focussing on this specific photo.
