technique names

Hi, it seems that different aikido organizations use different names for the techniques (i.e. ikkyo vs. ikkajo, or a technique that is kokyunage in one is seoionage in another is iriminage in yet another). Is there a comparative list that links the various names used in the more main styles of aikido (i.e. what a certain same technique is called in aikikai, yoshinkan, shodokan, etc) and where can I find that. Thank you.

You might try to find books that are representative of the different styles and compare and contrast the techniques described with the various names. Thats pretty much what I did.

Then again, I'm sure we here in these forums have enough resources to compile such a thing. I'd be happy to host such a list here on AikiWeb...

Anyone want to get started?

If you really want to throw a wrench into the monkey add seidokan to the list of styles

I quite like the idea. Here are some techniques names that are used at the two dojos I train at. They are aikikai.

Ikkyo

Nikyo

Sankyo

Yonkyo

Kotegaeshi

Shihonage

Iriminage

Kaitenage

Tenshinage (sp?)

Koshinage (like a judo hip throw)

Jijunage (sometimes called jijugarame)

Odegarame (sp?) assuming left foot forward, nage enters from a right hand tsuki by Uke . Left arm wraps at the crook of the elbow and right hand takes wrist. The body movement leads Uke in a circle to the left. Nages arms form a figure four lock and then leads Uke in another circular movement to the right with Uke's right hand being moved by nage to Uke's face.

Then there's a whole set of techniques all under the umbrella of Kokyunage including the kokyuho exercises.

Happy training all

Mayland

I think it's spelled tenchi nage (in English anyway. most books spell it that way)

To add to the list:

sumi otoshi(I've seen some recent books show what looks like sumi otoshi but describe it as a kokyu nage.)

aiki otoshi

hiji kime

kiri otoshi (not sure about this one. nage gets behind uke from any attack, grabs both of uke's shoulders and pull him backward and down)

Maybe we should possibly try to categorize them into the type of kansetsu or nage technique they are. Or possibly as defenses different attacks?

I.E.

OTOSHI: Sumi Hiji, Maki, Kiri, Kata, etc.

GARAME: Ude, Hiji, Kata, Ganseki, etc.

Then have explanations. Wheeeeewww!

Could be a lot of work. Maybe someone has a better idea.

The problem is getting mpegs or images of the techniques so the people working on the list can see what it is. I'm sure that a lot of the kokyu nage that I know have proper names for them.

Tenshinage (sp?)= tenchinage, some people confuse it with a form of iriminage, but it´s not!

Jijunage (sometimes called jijugarame)= jujinage, it´s natural to get confused.

Odegarame (sp?) = Udegarame.

The techiques are quite few, but the variations (someones very subtle) are endless.

Just to add some Shodokan nomenclature to Mayland's Aikikai set. Also give some info on the type of technique.

Aikikai - Shodokan

Ikkyo - Oshi Taoshi - Hiji waza (elbow tech)

Nikyo - Kote mawashi (or gyakute dori kote hineri osae) - Tekubi waza (wrist tech)

Sankyo - Kote hineri (or junte dori kotehineri osae, also tenkai kote hineri) -tekubi waza

Yonkyo - (Tekubi osae)- Tekubi waza (I think)

Kotegaeshi - Same - tekubi waza

Shihonage - Tenkai kote gaeshi - tekubi waza

Iriminage - Aigamae ate (or Gyakugamae ate for sokumen irimi nage) - atemi waza (striking tech)

Kaitenage - Tenkai Nage - hiji waza i think

Tenchinage - Same (or Tentai Aigamae ate) - atemi waza

Koshinage - Koshi guruma? - not sure what waza

Jujinage - Same (I think)- hiji waza

Udegarame - Ude gaeshi - hiji waza

Hope this helps, this is only the beginning of a list I've been working on. Peter, Sean and the other Shodokan guys may be able to clarify some of the stuff I'm unsure about.

Can you please explain Eric. I don't think that I have seen this one. If I have we may call it by a different name.

Happy training

No problem.

Gokyo is the technique also known as ude nobashi. It, afaik, was originaly designed to be a defense against a knife attack. Most common forms are shomen uchi dai gokyo and yokomen uchi dai gokyo. They are afaik standard techniques within the aikikai curiculum.

Describing techniques is not my specialty but I will give it a try.The technique resembles ikkyo in some aspects, but the major difference is that the nage's hand takes uke's wrist from the other side. If you can watch movieclips with realplayer you can watch these clips at

http://www.aikikai.nl/graden/index.htm

Hope this helps.

Greetings and enjoy training.

Tenchi nage is usually first taught as a response to ryote dori. Nage moves toward uke in irimi (to the side) and one hand of nage goes downward and ideally behind uke. Nage's other hand goes upward and off balances uke upward before continuing behind uke's ear, similar to nage's arm in rimi nage. Uke is thrown backward.

Is this being named kokyu nage nowadays?

Bud is correct in his description of tenchi nage, also known as "heaven and earth" throw, heaven refers to the upper hand and earth to the lower hand. It´s usually a 5th kyu technique.

How about this one:

Nage inserts an arm at the crook of uke's arm. Nage cuts his hand downward, bending uke's elbow and forcing uke down.

My understanding is that the Aikikai calls this ude garami. Can anyone confirm this?

BUd, I dont think Peter's confusion would be over what tenchi nage actually is or how it is performed. but instead over its classification. I could easily consider tenchinage as a form of iriminage because of its entering body movement. in the same way that many (or all) throws can be considered forms of kokyo nage.

the technique you describe in post 18, our association calls that ude garami also.

Ude kimi ose has been missed aswell... difficult to describe. its like a standing gokyo pin with pressure on the elbow. good for knife defence.

I think when it is pinned on the ground some people call it Rokkyo.

aiki otoshi is in our sylabus also (I think it is atemi waza in shotokan).

get low behind your partner taking their balance and sweeping their legs away with your arms. dropping them in front or behind you.

Exactly, it is the first time I have heard tenchinage denied an irimi classification.

In Shodokan parlance it is ryote dori variation of aigamae-ate. Aigamae-ate is definately an irimi technique.

http://homepage2.nifty.com/shodokan/...n/atemi_e.html

I would be interested in an expansion of the reasons you would not consider tenchinage so.

hmmm...so is the term "tenchi nage" fairly new? I'd consider it an irimi technique as well. Now I'm curious as to the history of the term "tenchi nage".

Refering to the original question, and the 2 terms, "Ikkajo" and "Ikkyo", as I learnt.

"Ikkajo" is "First Control", the original term used by O'Sensei pre-war, and is still used by the Yoshinkan and Shudokan schools. The term "Ikkyo" means "First Principle" and mirrored the change in emphasis within the Aikikai from the more martial practice of pre-war Aikido.

The same obviously applies to Nikajo/Nikyo, Sankajo/Sankyo, Yonkajo/Yonkyo, Gokajo/Gokyo.

Thank you Eric

You are correct in saying that they are part of the aikikai curriculum. However, my senseis teaches this technique as a variation to ikkyo.

Its a very dynamic technique to do and my primary sensei teaches this technique as a knife defence from shomen or yokomen attack.

All the best and happy training

Terms like tenchinage and shihonage have always been part of Aikido terminology - they pre-date the Ikkajo/Ikkyo etc terms. Shodokan terms were intended to be more descriptive of what was actually happening. Tomiki sometimes used older terms, sometimes modern to make that happen. We of course, through having to deal with our brethren from other styles, know most of the other terms.
