How does your school do kotegaeshi, .
- grab wrist, and take fingers and push hand at angle.
So I suppose the second method.
It always worked...but instead of the usual tension you have, there was an active resistance in the hand to move against the roll...it was weird indeed as it always seemed to work before.
(Even on this guy until he started doing this.)
Thanks for the advice, Im taking all this in and still pondering.
Maybe I will try to shoot sensei and email and ask him to demonstrate this - or at least to re-address how 5th kyus are to go about in practice. (I say email as I need translation - my Hungarian language skills arent the best.)
