All grips, but a bunch of variations, with the inclusion of atemi.

Shoji Nishio Sensei

Addresses Common Mistakes.  Considers how to unbalance uke immediately, and continuously.  Bokken and Jo Applications also.

We call it the Pivot Take Down.  The Japanese term for the technique which is used in Ueshiba's brand of aikido could be called Shiho Nage (or Four Directions Throw).

Stephane Goffin Sensei

Note the cuts... He cuts down, He cuts up, He cuts down again.  Pivot Take Down (Shihonage) is straight out of sword culture, but you can really see the ‘cuts’ here.  He also uses shiho nage movement principles to extend out into other techniques; some are a bit questionable in my mind.
