AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO TECHNIQUES

Katatetori Kokyunage  (sayo-ura)
Variation #3d

C. Matrasko is being attacked by a hand grab (katatetori). In her entrance to the technique, she chooses to take an  external entering - using tenkan. Continuing the direction of the movement she turns further around, then drops her hips. The wave-like motion of the nage's arms and body momentum from sayo-undo, sweeps the uke's balance upwards and then down. This is truly a movement of great momentum, if used with precision timing and only body motion. 

As usual, in Aikido practice - physical strength and speed is not a factor in effective technique.
