Training notes – Katadori kokyu nage (hiji nage)

In the below video, Koretoshi Maruyama sensei, Founder of Aikido Yuishinkai, provides training tips for Katadori kokyu nage as practised in his school.

A key aspect emphasised in the instruction is the use of the ude mawashi movement commonly seen in solo kata exercises to deflect the strike and take the uke to an off-balanced position. The unbalanced uke is then projected.

Recorded 2003 at Byron Bay, Austalia.

Have a great week
