Quotation of the month from All of Aikido:

Names such as kotegaeshi, sankyo, nikyo, ikkyo are used for the form of your hand or arm. Later the names are also used for the technique which uses those forms of your arm or the other person’s arm. Ikkyo means first teaching in the Japanese language and this is because Aikido techniques come from the techniques invented by samurai whose main practice was sword fighting. Ikkyo form permits you to use your hand or arm like a sword in many techniques.
