Training notes: Ushiro ryokatadori aiki otoshi

Aiki otoshi techniques are commonly referred to as blending drop” techniques.  While not as commonly practised as other forms of technique, they have a long history in Aikido.

In the below archive video R Crane Sensei demonstrates and provides instruction on Ushiro ryokatadori aiki otoshi.  This form of aiki otoshi is practised from a 2 handed should grab attack from behind.

From a safety perspective, it recommended that aiki otoshi not be attempted except under the close guidance and instruction of an experienced instructor familiar with the technique, including how to receive it.
