Koyoku

Yesterday we learned a new form from the Kotō school, kōyoku. The attacker punches me with his right hand. I counter with a percussive high-level receive, then punch him in butsumetsu as I roll my arm underneath his and set up for a boulder throw. Keeping my right fist in his face, I enter with a right sideways step, applying slicing pressure up across his upper arm directed through his shoulder joint. Finally, I open into a flat figure-one stance to throw him.
