Various Style Technique Translation

I currently practice in the Jiyushinkai system which is very rooted in Tomiki Aikido with our kata. I am trying to find a good way to talk with Aikikai, Yoshinkan, etc... about our techniques and understand the language difference between the two. As our system goes here are the 17 kata

Atemi Waza -
1. Shomen Ate
2. Aigamae Ate
3. Gyakugamae Ate
4. Gedan Ate
5. Ushiro Ate

Hiji Waza -
6. Oshi Taoshi
7. Ude Gaeshi
8. Hiki Taoshi
9. Ude Hineri
10. Waki Gatame

Tekubi Waza -
11. Kote Hineri
12. Kote Gaeshi
13. Tenkai Kote Hineri
14. Shihonage (Tenkai Kote Gaeshi)

Uki Waza -
15. Mae Otoshi
16. Sumi Otoshi
17. Hiki Otoshi

I have checked the aikiwiki for similar techniques throughout the different systems, and the chart seems to have quite a few of them translated. I am curious though if the few that don't translate throughout the systems, such as Aikikai Yonkyo & Gokyo, have similar technique in Tomiki Aikido. If anyone has a fairly well list of translated waza, I would appreciate it if they would share it. Thanks.

Get Shishida-shihan and Nariyama-shihan book on Shodokan Aikido. It's all there.

Atemi Waza -
1. Shomen Ate -- tenshi nage, sometimes.
2. Aigamae Ate -- irimi nage, sometimes tenshinage.
3. Gyakugamae Ate -- kyoko ho.
4. Gedan Ate -- koshinage.
5. Ushiro Ate -- no idea.

Hiji Waza -
6. Oshi Taoshi -- ikkyo
7. Ude Gaeshi -- not sure but I think it's the same.
8. Hiki Taoshi -- not sure but I think it's the same.
9. Ude Hineri -- kaiten nage.
10. Waki Gatame -- same

Tekubi Waza -
11. Kote Hineri -- nikyo
12. Kote Gaeshi -- same
13. Tenkai Kote Hineri -- sankyo
14. Shihonage (Tenkai Kote Gaeshi) -- shihonage.

Uki Waza -
15. Mae Otoshi -- same
16. Sumi Otoshi -- same
17. Hiki Otoshi -- same.

In Shodokan, yonkyo is done in 2nd kyu kneeling. Gokyo is done in the second dan part of the goshin no kata. So far, I have not seen *any aikido* technique not taught in any of the styles I have seen and trained in.

What some folks mean as kata is a set response against a set attack. What we Shodokan folks call a kata is a technique (say, ikkyo or oshi taoshi) with many different applications. technically, we should call them waza not kata but I maybe wrong as my Japanese is rather poor.

The people who understand, understand prefectly.

Re: Various Style Technique Translation

Hi Yann;

I think in Shodokan parlance waza is technique while kata refers to a technique done in a certain way against a defined attack.

So the Junanahon is a kata but so are all 17 of its components. However, shomen-ate by itself for example is a waza. I think the confusion arises since, again with shomen-ate, there are a number of official variations (kata) to different attacks. Circles beyond circles. Of course when you pull off a drop dead gorgeous shomen-ate in randori no one says "damm that was a beautiful kata"

In my experience, there's a chorus of "Woohoos!!!", a lot of similing faces and uke being so annoyed that (s)he got done by the first waza (s)he learnt!
