Re: When is koshinage not koshinage?


I was taught the T-style by K Chiba, but learned the parallel hips style here in Japan. One reason for the latter is that students here liked to do it with one hand on uke's back, around waist height. I think that doing it directly, stepping in between uke's legs, from something like yokomen-uchi, would also lead to the parallel-hips way.

Best wishes,
