Iriminage and kotehineri

Thought I'd break up the density of the previous post with a pic or two. The first is yours truly getting busted with a very good iriminage from Gokata. I like to call this picture, "Dude! Nice beard!"

Y'all remember all the sacharine sweet pictures in sepia tones of the little boy and girl holding hands walking down the country road? Well, here's the aikido version. This is katatedori tenkai kotehineri (sankyo to my aikikai friends) from Sankata. Tori on the left has uke's wrist in an awful predicament and is about to put uke's head in the ground when he finally puts that right leg down.
