Question Irimi Nage as Kokyu nage?

Hey all, I was re-reading one of my favorite Aikido books tonight, Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere (which I'm sure must be in a lot of Aikidoka libraries), and noticed something strange.

On page 226, they show what they are calling "Kokyu nage", but from the lessons I've taken, and all the video I've seen of this technique (example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE4jk...eature=related ), it looks like pure irimi-nage to me.

Is Irimi-nage a *type* of kokyu nage?

Any comments are appreciated

-Bryan
