So although there is logic in naming both the stances and the grabs using the "gyaku" term, it terns out weird:
-gyakute dori is done in ai hanmi
-katate dori is done from gyaku hanmi
Well, at least we both have the same understanding. I can live with the "other" as opposed to "normal" meaning. That makes sense... I think...

Do you ever get down this way? If so, stop in and say hello!
