"escape" techniques

what is the Japanese term for techniques involving escape from a joint lock, allowing uke to then become nage? for example, getting out of nikkyo and then doing kote gaeshi.

thanks

Fred

Some call that kaeshi waza.

Although, whether it's advanced or not is up to individual interpretation.

I think the correct term would be "waza ga heta".

Re: "escape" techniques

Fred, John was making a joke. "Waza ga heta" means poor/bad technique. Kaeshi waza is the term you are looking for. Kaeshi means to return, reversal, reverse, etc...

yes, John is full of oyaji gags! but he didn't mean any harm by it (probably).
