Re: kata dori vs. katate dori

In this context, in general usage:

Kata = shoulder
Ryokata = two/both shoulders
Eri = lapel
Katate = single wrist
Ryote or ryote mochi dori = both wrists (grabbed)
Morote = two hands grabbing one wrist
Kosa dori or kosa katate dori = single-wrist, cross-hand

There's some variation between styles and lineages, sometimes from dojo to dojo, too.
