Re: right way of doing sitting kokyu-ho

If you can apply kokyu in seiza, you should be able to apply kokyu from any position, in any context. Even if you're doing simple tachi-waza like katate tori or even kata tori, if tori isn't capturing your center at or before the moment of contact, you as uke, should be able to find the kokyu path to their center and off balance them instead. Just because you're uke, doesn't mean you're not training kokyu either!
