First technique, using one hand on the elbow and one hand near the wrist which leverages the uke to the ground. This grip applies pressure into the ulnar nerve at the wrist.
Second technique, a pronating (rotational movement of the forearm) wristlock that torques the arm and applies painful nerve pressure. (There is an adductive wristlock or Z-lock in ura version.)
Third technique, a rotational wristlock that directs upward-spiraling tension throughout the arm, elbow and shoulder.
Fourth technique, a shoulder control similar to ikkyō, but with both hands gripping the forearm. The knuckles (from the palm side) are applied to the recipient's radial nerve against the periosteum of the forearm bone.
Fifth technique, visually similar to ikkyō, but with an inverted grip of the wrist, medial rotation of the arm and shoulder, and downward pressure on the elbow. Common in knife and other weapon take-aways.
Sixth technique, also called Elbow arm-barring pressure.
Four-direction throw, the hand is folded back past the shoulder, locking the shoulder joint.
Forearm return, a supinating wristlock-throw that stretches the extensor digitorum.
Breath throw, a loosely used term for various types of mechanically unrelated techniques, although they generally do not use joint locks like other techniques.
Entering throw, throws in which nage moves through the space occupied by uke. The classic form superficially resembles a "clothesline" technique.
Heaven-and-earth throw, beginning with ryōte-dori; moving forward, nage sweeps one hand low ("earth") and the other high ("heaven"), which unbalances uke so that they easily topples over.
Hip throw, aikido's version of the hip throw. Nage drops his or her hips lower than those of uke, then flips uke over the resultant fulcrum.
Figure-ten throw or figure-ten entanglement, a throw that locks the arms against each other.
Rotary throw nage sweeps the arm back until it locks the shoulder joint, then uses forward pressure to throw.
