Sayu Nage? I know there is an exercise in Tohei's book called sayu undo, but I have never seen it listed as sayu nage (kokyu nage yes).
Hmmmmm.... doing a quick Google on "Sayu Nage" I get 22 hits, John. I agree that you don't hear the term all that much, but it's legitimate. Different dojo's will call a certain throw different names, many times. It is a kokyu throw, I'd concur, but it's a difficult one for a lot of people because they can't bring their full weight to their arms without a lot of practice.
