Jun, what about the kokyunage whereby you are held ai hanmi, and then you irimi tenkan to his holding hand side and use your free hand to extend up and outwards to throw.

usually balance breaking is enough to throw someone forwards especially if you get the momentum right, but some people enjoy lifting your elbows up before throwing you. Acts in a very similar way to Rokyo me thinks.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
