In this version of
Kokyunage, the nage grabs the sleeve of the attacker with her right
hand, steps back moving slightly off center towards the left. Her left
hand can strike the attacker's face, but drops and slices through the
bend of the arm with a downwards through-motion, as her weight shifts
and steps back.
The uke is taken off

her left and steps in front of him (irimi entrace). Note that the
direction that the entire motion is taking a clock-wise direction and
is being continually being led so, by the nage.

C. Matrasko (nage), James Loeser (uke)
