Trying to wrap my mind around certain new terms Im encountering...

Suihei Uchi vs. Gyaku yokomen uchi
[Its the same technique, but curious what Suihei Uchi translates as]

Koshi Nage Kote Hineri
[I have found that Kote Hineri is the same as saying Sankyo - albeit the actual translation Im sure is different]

Thanks

"Suihei" (水平) can mean "horizontal, level". "Suihei-giri" is a horizontal cut.
"Kote Hineri" means wrist twist and is the "descriptive name" for technique usually called sankyo or sankajo.
