Re: When is koshinage not koshinage?

who says we work at arms length in aikido... i find many of the waza require much the same set up as judo, and as such require that you blend 'hip to hip' or very closely with their body... i like to do koshinage with an ikkyo set up and you cant really do an ikkyo from arm's length... maybe we are just talking about different things, but i have Always considered aikido to be a close range(clinch) art not a long range(arm length)... maybe i'm wrong, but i don't feel that way...
