Re: Does Anybody Know Whether This Technique Has a Name?

Alberto is not describing the conventional rokkyo or hijijime. What he is describing is more of a variation on what I would call mai otoshi.

The pressure on the elbow is coming from underneith.The "eye" of the elbow is pointing up, not down as it would be in rokkyo/hijijime.

"Through aiki we can feel the mind of the enemy who comes to attack and are thus able to respond immediately." - M. Mochizuki
