Easy But Not

Last night at NSA we worked on a simple kokyunage.

Its the typical one, started with a ryotetori attack.  We were really focused on uke's body position and reaction as we did the technique.

We started out by bringing the hands out just a little to make a connection as we enter to the inside.  Then we draw the elbows down which causes uke to move into you.  Then just pivot.

Those are the major parts.... but there was actually a bunch more details that we were looking at.  What was most interesting was that we all react differently as ukes.  So the distance for one uke isn't the right distance for another.
