question about a particular technique

Hey everyone, how are you?
What is that technique I saw Seagal do so much during his early films. You know the one where his attakers are lunging at him and he throws in the same direction?

Re: question about a particular technique

No clue what you are talking about.

If it looks like a clothesline, then it is an irimi.
If it looks like he grabs their wrist and flips them over to their outside, then it is most likely a kotegaeshi.

Those two throws are what he maily used in his first few movies such as Above the Law.

Re: question about a particular technique

yeah sorry I didn't describe it very well. But if you have seen the start of marked for death he also does it there too.

Re: question about a particular technique

If they are continuing in the same direction as their lung it could be what some will call a kokyunage. I noticed a kaitennage in a movie of his that I had not noticed in previous viewings.

Re: question about a particular technique

yeah, come to think of it I reckon it might be a kokyunage, thanks Gerard.

Re: question about a particular technique

But when I said he throws them in the same direction i went the same direction as the attacker is moving to. If you've seen 'Above the Law' when during Seagal's randori scene he does it twice.

Re: question about a particular technique

In gassho is a buddhist honorific. It means 'the two palms pressed together'
