Re: YouTube: Morihiro Saito Sensei - Morotedori Techniques

When uke does Morotedori with a strong connection into nage's center it is very difficult for the nage to move, let alone punch with the free hand (or kick for that matter) which I suppose what makes for exellent kokyu training.

Saito Sensei would demonstrate flowing into Morotedori from Shomenuchi where the uke cuts down nage's hand and grabs it with the other while changing hanmi. You can see this in at 00:16 and again at 00:32
