One of the throw is like this: girl gets ippon seoi nage attempt (or not, I don't remember). She gets into a side-to-side stance with the guy, her right to his left. Now having right hand grip over his shoulder (maybe left hand on his left arm, too), she jumps up while tucking her legs to her chest, rotating the jump so she ends up wedging both shins onto the guy's body under his left armpit. Of course she doesn't plan to stay there: she uses this rotational momentum and her own body weight to throw the guy and flip him completely.
CK any japanese name for such a throw or does it come under the modern chaotic approach?
There's a reason the authors called the thing "Hikkomi-no-kata" ...
In a sense ... if there is separation (and thus scorable) it generally is Hikkomi-gaeshi; if not, it all (generally) falls under "skillful entry into newaza". That is at least the correct traditional jûdô logic although under today's referee habits someone could get ippon just for swallowing ... if that ends up in someone touching the tatami with anything else but his feet ...
"Chaotic techniques" are more the kind of techniques that evolve from someone trying something traditional that initially does not work, and mobilizing all kinds of extra levers and pushes and dynamics and combined actions until he gets the other one on the ground in such a way that what has been applied substantially differs from a traditional technique or throwing principle. Several of the things which in Britain they started referring to by the awkward nominative "Kokusai waza" are such "chaotic techniques".
Thanks for the correction I personally was looking at that two knee in the side as a yokosutemi not as as a take down into newaza.
I remember working on a sumigaishi type technique were I grasped the back of the neck jumped with my leg bent across uke stomach dragged him down and flipped to the side and held that I rarely scored, but won with osoikomi.
In terms of terminology, there are only three options:
1. the principle classifies as a henka of a known jûdô principle and technique and takes over its name.
2. the principle is a hitherto unknown throwing principle that cannot be considered as the application of an existing jûdô technique/principle and needs to be given a new name.
3. the principle cannot be categorized as an actual throw, but needs to be considered as a "skillful entry into newaza"
Ultimately it is the prerogative of the Kôdôkan to decide between #1 and #2, although in the mean time there will be idiots around looking to give some crazy Western (or worse "Japanese-sounding") eponym name to it like --I don't know-- maybe "the Dutch flying fish" or something ... In my opinion, the problem is not any different from what I have already pointed out, that is, it is (also) simply hikkomi-gaeshi on the condition that there is separation between the two opponents and sufficient impact on the tatami, and "skillful entry into newaza" if not. There are other examples where a technique that normally is considered ma-sutemi-waza may be performed as yoko-sutemi-waza or the other way around; such an example is yoko-wakare.
As you point out, similar techniques might rarely score, and the reason is/should be the one I pointed out.
Without splitting hairs, please note that hold-control techniques in newaza are called osaekomi-waza, not osoikomi, which means something like "entering slowly"; I leave it up to others if that meaning should be considered transitive or intransitive ...
