Re: When is koshinage not koshinage?

Ganseki otoshi!!! one of my favorites!, but 'categories' of techniques are somewhat loose and broad because of variations that overlap certain areas... we categorize lots of throws as kokyu nage, but i have seen and done some that might also be described as koshi or at least koshi like... for example yokomen uchi kokyu nage irimi (scarf throw) reminds me of uki goshi (floating hip throw)...
Hi Edwin,

I agree that there are many blurs with descriptions of techniques, but I still wouldn't call any throw done higher up the back a koshinage, because it isn't .



A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
