Re: Making Kote Gaeshi Work - With Resistance

We've done some resistance on the old kote gaishi.

I find that resistance is effective when nage attempts to do the technique on the wrist using his / her hands. If you try to do the wrist turn with the intention of taking their centre by moving your whole body then KG comes on like a daemon. But add in some unbendable arm from a dan level guy and it's a whole different matter!

In practice this can mean to hold their hand close to your belly (in a KG style) and turn your whole body in the direction (usually away form uke) you want to apply the KG.

peace and love
