Re: Great Pics of Hiroshi Kato, 8th Dan

John,
I think I know what that was because 4 years ago, we caught that on film here in one of the Houston dojos. I had the film until I lost it in the big flood. It could be morotetori kokyunage. In this, the uke comes in holding as hard as he can and Kato sensei pulls his hip back without moving his feet. Then suddenly, he shoots his energy out his arm and if uke is still holding on, it will lift him straight up and on our film, it shot the uke over. In this case, the uke just went up. Maybe someone that was there can confirm or correct me.
Best wishes,
