Re: The shoulder grab - where does this come from

3) Can anyone comment on where this attack comes from?

If the person was wearing armour then wouldn't it equate to grabbing the sode? But then why call the attack katadori?

If the person was wearing a kataginu however, the attack and name would seem plausible.
