Re: Is it kokyu-nage if you don't use kokyu-power?

Oh mike...
...could you imagine that we agree with your definition of kokyu-nage, but still stick to the widely spread meaning it has more or less to the rest of the people?

We have all our little fights against windmills...

One hint: Read the interview with Tissier
http://dublinaikido.com/wp/2008/02/2...h-dan-aikikai/
...and maybe you can understand that it might be OK to start training without ki and kokyu...
Erm...the gist of that interview was that Tissier doesn't know or have Ki/Kokyu skills, which is even more troubling if you ask me.
