Re: Youtube: Kakari Geiko with Empty Handed and Weapons Techniques

Not stealing anything or changing their meaning. Going off my wife's input along with her Japanese dictionaries. The kanji dictates everything.

Kakari geiko - hard practice (practice same technique against several partners)
Jiyuwaza - free style techniques (nage can do whatever while uke can only do one attack)
Randori - chaos takeaway (anything goes)
In order of intensity - as I learned it years ago

Kakari geiko - Light practice (free style, but light)
Hikitate-geiko - A bit harder (give and take = partners allow themselves to be thrown if it is half good - they resist if it is not so good - because they can)
Randori - Both parties refuse to be thrown - so a throw only appears if it works. Yes - chaos :-)

All the above are one on one
Ninin-dori = two partners
Sannin-dori = three partners
Tanin-dori = multiple partners

Different schools/Ryu apply different interpretations to many Japanese words / phrases.

PS Japanese-English dictionaries are not always accurate.
