This technique is called ikkyu, which is the first in the series of techniques our sensai established for us. One of the most basic forms we can look at is from ai han mi, kate datori. Again, like in all of our other techniques, I don't want to fight directly with my partner's line of strength. So I'm going to follow my own. This is actually quite easy to move. So both hands up, away from his line of strength, and I'm going to slide forward. My back hand is going to meet the elbow and turn the hips. Urime, step in. Urime toward the side. Again, shoulder to the ground, and down for a pin.

This isn't one of the more painful pins, but it works very well in terms of keeping your partner immobilized. Hands up and slide your body forward. Turn the hips, step in, and out. Again, in almost every technique in aikido we have one variation that goes to the front side and one variation that goes to the back side. The back side wura, hands come up. Instead of sliding to the front, I'm gong to take a step irini, to the back. Tenkan and continue to turn all the way down. Hands up, irini, tenkan, kaiten. So the imote variation. Irini, irini, ura, and ura. Ikkyo, number one.
