I am just now undertanding the infinate possibilities of: katamewaza (pinning techniques), nagewaza (throwing tehcniques), kihonwaza (basic techniques ex: ikkyo, kotegashi, iriminage, sokomen, shihonage, jujinage, kaitenage, koshinage), oyawaza (advaned applicationof basic tehcniques), and henkawza (changing techniques)...I know there are several interpretations of these but,....does anyone have a different defintion of these or that can add to them?...
I don't have a different definition, but I know of osae waza as pinning techniques. Do you or anyone else know if they are interchangeable terms?
