Re: Locking/pinning as pain submission...

I'd like to share some alternative perspective to that last post...

I heard that Yamaguchi sensei used to say (often) that kotegaeshi was probably a bad name for it. Considering the sheer number of shihans who were actively attending his classes for instruction, I'm going to go with his view point as much more authoritative than almost anyone elses on what kotegaeshi is/should be. From the perspective of his lineage, people who are cranking the wrist against the joints are _not really doing kotegaeshi_.
