Re: Aikido taiotoshi?

In our syllabus this is sumi otoshi: tori goes down on his knees and blocks knee or foot of uke.

The version shown in this thread as tai otoshi is called kokyu nag at us.
That's a nice vid btw...
Though in our school we call this aikiotoshi but I really can't tell you why.
As for tai otoshi, typically we would call that from an ushiro Ryotedori/tekubitori kokyunage throw to the front.

But i'm the last person to argue about semantics or names so when in Rome...

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
