Do-san: Step 6 & 7 as Hip Throw
As an overview, step 6 is a right spearhand or nukite with left guarding. Step 7 is a left 360 degree turn into a left backfist. This is interpreted in a number of ways, but the 'official' or most common interpretation is as a 'Judo' hip throw. I also teach it as a choke/takedown with the added movement of the turn introducing a strike the side of the neck with a ridge hand.
Oldman has a diagram depicting Step 6 & 7 in the 'official' interpretation - that of the turn as a release from a handlock. Oldman's Boobishi: Bunkai Pinan Sandan
