Re: how to classify kokyunage

In daito-ryu the term 'kokyu-nage' ist related to a special group of techniques. In Aikdo most people in fact mean all the techniques having no special names.
Often kokyu-nage techiques are executed in a way that uke comes running and is thrown by its own kinetic energy.
I remeber having read that this kind of throwing was only for demonstrations.
