In the below videos Morihiro Saito Sensei (1928-2002) provides instruction on the traditional (basic) versions of Katatedori ikkyo (omote and ura) as practised by O’Sensei (the Founder of Aikido) in the immediate post-war period of his life. The demonstrations are given from a static attack in the form of a same side wrist grab (katatedori).
Katatedori ikkyo is typically one of the first techniques learnt by newer students to Aikido practice.

In the below video S Crane Sensei demonstrates and provides instruction for the Aikido technique Katatedori hiji osae. In Aikido the term osae refers to techniques that are completed with a pin. Katatedori hiji osae is very similar to Katatedori ikkyo, with the exception that the application and pin apply pressure to the uke’s elbow.
