AIKIDO TECHNICAL TIPS
AIKIDO TECHNIQUES

Katatetori Kokyunage (omote)
Variation #1a

Kokyunage is a movement based on the momentum and direction of the attacker.

The nage's right hand in the graphic is the object that the attacker grabs for. Note that the nage makes an irimi entrance and also attacks the uke towards the face with the left hand, causing the uke to turn to avoid the counter-attack. This allows the nage to take advantage of the movement change. The nage adjusts and throws the attacker.

Please be patient. Because of its animated content -  the graphic below will take time to download through your browser.

The beauty of Aikido is that you can vary moves, just as long as you keep within the Aikido principles of redirection and adjustment in movement.
