That would be "ashi." "Kashi" can refer either to "oak" or "confectionary." Unless there's some kind of set of techniques involving the two...
<snipped some stuff of mine>
I actually did a search on kashi, just in case Matt was referring to something obscure, and I hit legs several times, including
and these guys say the same thing and more actually.
They also include the following translations:
the legs; lower extremities
being granted; granting; imperial grant
asphyxiation; apparent death
song lyrics; words of a song
fish market; riverside; river bank
As far as that particular kotegaeshi counter goes of uke launching nage while uke is still in the air, I think it's more for show.
I completely agree but I still want to know how to do it.
