I have a query about hasso no gaeshi (correct term I believe, let me know if I have it wrong). I am wondering if the initial spinning of the jo into position can be used to strike your partner, front or behind, as in one kata you perform hasso no gaeshi while doing an irimi tenkan seemingly ignoring the opponent that was in front of you moments before. I can only think that one uses the spinning of the jo to strike or keep your opponent away. Has anyone seen or indeed used hasso no gaeshi in this way?
