Re: right way of doing sitting kokyu-ho

Liked your post, Ignatius.

I agree: uke should not try and hold/push down the hands but rather try and hold nageīs center (which if I understood it right others have described as center to center connection?). And then stay connected.

I have been trying to explain this to the beginnerīs group that I teach, but find it very difficult to find the right words/pictures to go along with them "feeling" it when I or some other more advanced student does it on them. Any tips?
