    That is the old rule, like 30 years old. As I stated previously the current rule is when you take alternate kamae. As to the originsl question, the purpose of katsugi-waza is mostly timing and surprise. You pull it to the shoulder and stall briefly, your opponent says "what the hell is he doing?" and...
