Koshinage: the “hip throw” of Aikido

This video shows a small sampling of the vast variety of koshinage, or “hip throw” found in Aikido. It shows some entries from ushiro, and from male triangle movement (both “inside” and “outside”). We demonstrate some of the striking technqiues that can be used to cover entrances to koshinage, and also some manipulations related to these entrances and variations. There’s also some specific safety instruction for helping newer students to safely receive the technique.
