Weapons taking. Tachi dori – kote gaeshi.
Some Important points are:
- Keep your backhand out of the way of the sword cut – or you may end up with broken fingers – or less fingers if it’s a live blade.
- Kote gaeshi comes from ken. Think weapons while throwing.
- You need to perform utemi to get your partner to let go with one hand. It is very hard to throw when they have two hands on the weapon.
- Make sure you put your partner’s wrist behind their shoulder for the throw.
