I watched this with a judo buddy who just cackled at how bad Isoyama's KATA GURUMA is.
Well, in the style of aikido I practice, if we are referring to the same technique, we would not call that kataguruma. That looks more like a body slam, though I'm sure, there is a more elegant Japanese name for it.
