Re: Alternative Names

Ummmm, alternative name? Ralph? Seriously, there is, or should be, a wheel-like aspect to this throw, so maybe a kaitenage? In our test requirements, the technique is listed as "pivot throw variations required" under the heading of ryokatatori kokyunage, so that's what I am most comfortable with. A test candidate is expected to demonstrate all five pivot throw variations and then a variety of more classic kokyunage.
