Re: Gyaku hanmi vs gyakute-dori

Hi

You seem to have the stances pretty much covered now...until you get input from yoshinkan who sometimes use 'ai hanmi' feet with gyaku hanmi' upper body. ;-)

It might help if you think of katate dori as the wrist, hiji dori as elbow etc depending on the terminology in your dojo.

so you end up with words that give...posture relative to uke, nature of attack and the technique to be deployed.

eg,

Ai hanmi (posture), katate dori,( wrist grab attack) ikkyo (technique).

seems fairly common in the Aikikai plus derivatives world.

Cheers

D

Hi Daren. Thanks. That way does make things easy to work out.

My immediate challenge (as a lowly 6th kyu) was to work out how they are used at our dojo. Now I've finally got that idea down, plus (thanks to everyone here, and Sensei) a broader view on several terms used elsewhere. So now at least I won't be confused when someone says "katate-dori" and does what I know as "gyakute dori."

Interesting stuff... Language in general is fascinating. A couple of my favorite classes in college were Latin & Greek Word Derivations, and American Dialectology. The variety of words and pronunciations for a single activity or doodad / geegaw / whatsit is mind-boggling. I hadn't figured on getting into those questions around Aikido techniques, but hey, why not?

Cheers,
Linda
