Re: When is koshinage not koshinage?

Hello Ellis,

The way I have been taught koshinage here in Hiroshima is via parallel hips, which allows a much greater range of use GIVEN FLEXIBILITY WITH THE KNEES. As I grow older, I am losing this flexibility with the knees and have to compensate by using the T-formation and throwing uke higher over my back.

Best,

P A Goldsbury
