The fact that this type of grip is NOT common place in any koryu should tell you it's lack of practicality. If it was such a valued technique it would appear more in koryu.

Laf,

Several koryu do them in kata. Taisha-ryu do it, Araki-ryu do it and I have seen one iai technique done sakate (gyaku-te) in an embu of Tenshin-Sho Jigen-ryu in Tokyo during the April of this year.

It's not a predominant technique, but some do have them, as rare as it is.

Like i said. It's not common in koryu. This leads me to believe there wasn't much stock put into this technique orther wise it would appear more often. I never said they don't use it at all.

Only need to be told once CXT. The moderator has already done so, in a politer tone.

They are uncommon, but sakate waza are used in koryu. This clarification should be made just to avoid misconceptions that only junte/honte techniques are only used.

Sorry.

On the other hand MANY folks said the same thing all thu out the thread.

You seem you have missed all the times people said it prior to the second page of the thread.

Forgive me for making sure.

But again, sorry for any offense.

Honestly.
