Aikido Morote-Dori Kokyu-Ho

Aikido Technique – Morote-Dori Kokyu-Ho

Morote-Dori Kokyu-Ho is an Aikido exercise that teaches students how to unbalance an attacker who has grabbed them with two hands. In this Aikido technique, a student will use their hips and elbow to knock over their training partner (uke).

According to Traditional Aikido of Sonoma, “O’Sensei once said that a student could learn all the basics of aikido if he practiced just three techniques: tai-no-henkomorotedori-kokyuho, and suwariwaza-kokyuho“.

For other Aikido techniques (i.e. Aikido wrist locks, elbow locks, counters or dislocations), visit Black Belt Wiki’s main Aikido Techniques section.
