No problem.

Gokyo is the technique also known as ude nobashi. It, afaik, was originaly designed to be a defense against a knife attack. Most common forms are shomen uchi dai gokyo and yokomen uchi dai gokyo. They are afaik standard techniques within the aikikai curiculum.

Thank you Eric

You are correct in saying that they are part of the aikikai curriculum. However, my senseis teaches this technique as a variation to ikkyo.

Its a very dynamic technique to do and my primary sensei teaches this technique as a knife defence from shomen or yokomen attack.

All the best and happy training
