One of the kokyu-nages from ryokatatedori where nage enters under one arm and draws through the other hand to spin uke in place between their hands, one raised, one lowerd.... kind of like tenchinage in that.

I cannot describe it better, mores the pity, but it is quite easy for the uke to "tighten up" since it is a abrupt change in direction. If you are relaxed throughout, then no prob.....but tense up.......OUCH! (mostly 'cause of my bad shoulder on one side)



Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
