Re: Poll: How comfortable are you in taking falls from aikido koshinage?
Judo background here (as with some earilier posts). I was surprised to find that koshi nage was the biggest, baddest and "most feared" throw. After judo class, Ikoshi nage is a snap.
However, as earlier stated, it can be a nightmare if you are dealing with (being thrown by) someone inexperienced with the throw. I remember a training session where a yudansha (I was kyu rank) was getting upset with me, because he just didn't "get it", and all my help was embarrassing him.
