Training notes: Yokomenuchi kokyu nage

In the below video senior students from our dojo demonstrate a direct entry variation of the Aikido technique Yokomenuchi kokyu nage. 

In this particular variation, the nage initially executes a direct entry hand sword cut up the uke’s centreline to take their balance.  This initial taking of the uke’s balance sets up the remainder of the technique and is critical to its successful application.

 

Have  great week
