Re: The etymology of Kote Gaeshi

It's not confusing. "Kote" refers to the part of your arm from your wrist to your elbow. It is written 小手, "small" and "hand"
Just trying to understand, if "hand" is the part of the arm between the wrist and the fingers, what is the logic in calling a "part of your arm from your wrist to your elbow" a "small hand"?
