Artist's Description

Joe Thambu Shihan, 7th Dan
Aikido Shudokan Dojo.

Kokyunage (Breath Throws) is a general term used to describe a momentum based movement.

The technique used in this shot is quite difficult as the two uke are being thrown in opposing directions.

O-Sensei, Morehei Ueshiba called Kokyunage the 20 year technique due to the time it took him to perfect.
