Last week during training, we were looking at Sochin kata bunkai.
We were getting a few ideas from Didier Lupo (via t'interweb) and upon disagreeing with one of his interpretations of the moves, I noticed a nice little bit of Aikido in there.
Here it is:
After turning around to execute mikazuki geri, we move into koshi gamae, then move 45 degrees left with uchi uke then right oi-zuki. And there it is! As you turn and parry the attack you maintain contact with your opponent's arm/wrist whilst you proceed to give your opponent a kicking. Take hold of this arm/wrist whilst you teach your opponent the error of his ways, take their wrist with you when you uchi uke, step through with your 'punching hand' keeping your opponent's wrist where you want it and throw.
This is Koto Gaish.
Anyone else spot this or use it? Amongst other possible uses, of course.
