Re: kubi nage


Great video of Saito. I'd never seen that footage before. Thanks for posting it.

The throw at 0:20 looks like a kaiten nage to me. The latter ones I remember being called kokyu nage, but they may well be called kubi nage. Those things do change over the years, and of course, memories vary.
