Re: What is an "advanced technique?"

Katagatame as in the choke?
Nope. See Although, I dunno, I guess you could turn it into a choke? But I think there's a judo technique of the same name that's a choke with the gi?

Out of curiosity, can you provide a Youtube link to your version of sumiotoshi?
I might be able to find one, if I had the time to scour through Youtube, but there's a good chance I could look all day and not find it. It was ryotetori sumiotoshi, but not on the side that you'd probably expect, and ended in katagatame. Hard to describe, fun to do.

Not sure how relevant, but how many people do a 'rokukyo' as a basic technique in their curriculum. I don't know that I've ever been to a dojo that does that, or at least they never did or talked about it while I was there. I believe the Birinkai might have that as a technique and it might be a lot like, what I'll generically call wakigatame.
I don't know "rokukyo". We have rokyo, but I don't know anything called "rokukyo". Got a vid?
