Re: Ikkyo

Well done.
I was under the impression, however, that the -kyos are pins, which is why the statement "It can also be used as a throw, by extending up into the elbow without then rolling it down." struck me as a little out of place.

To me, if ikkyo did not end with a pin on the ground, not sure I would call it ikkyo.
