Re: Kaiten nage with a bang....

One previous sensei (and a regular on this forum) had us doing this in nearly anything where we wanted to finish the throw harder. Kokyu-nage, or anything, really.. That had us connected to our core, ki, mass centre, whatever, and made the transfer from our movement to uke more firmly connected.

I think it was Jack Dempsey wrote the same thing about weight transfer (fall step) at the moment of impact with his punches.
