Look at [ this video ] of Akuzawa. Can you see the difference between the "wrong" way to do kokyo-ho (0:30) and the "right" way (0:35)?[/list]
Hehe, that's usually what I call ki diarrhea , in other words at 0.30 he's letting the power spill out of his backside, but at 0.35 his hips and shoulders are in line Unless I've missed something, there's no sound so I might be interpreting the vid wrong, kinda have to be there really.

It's really really common to see that happen in aikido when doing tenkan ikkyo, people tend to try to lead uke around with their arse
