Re: Kotegaeshi: hand or wrist?

We've practiced kote gaeshi using the forearm before... same body position and timing, you just take the whole forearm back with you. No gripping of either hand or wrist is necessary if your sabaki and tenkan movements are well timed (your mileage may vary of course).

We usually perform this by holding the wrist as a fulcrum and rotating the hand away from the body whilst turning the whole arm around and back toward the body.
