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.
Dear James,
Isoyama Sensei is doing both Kata[Shoulder]Guruma [Wheel] and and a body slam from a shoulder height postion.In Kata guruma the body of uke should travel in an arc like circular motion,In this demo clearly Isoyama Sensei dumps his uke on occasion onto the tatami.Cheers.Joe.
