In General Inspired by Shihan's Seminar Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #216 New 11-03-2010 06:09 PM
I haven't been to a seminar in a while but as Fukakusa Shihan was in town, I popped along to the Tanglin CC dojo where I normally practice. And as always I was inspired to watch and learn from him. He never fails to surprise me with his moves and his litheness despite his age. I'd certainly never imagine he was so old as he moves with the flexibility that some of us never achieve throughout our entire lives.

He taught an extremely interesting move, among others, that I really liked and want badly to remember so am making a brief note here for myself.

From a label grab, out, and down into what looks like to be like a standard elbow lock but instead use a slight twist at the end to turn it almost into a nikyo by a very slight sawing motion at the bicep level. I'm not sure it's called a nikyo but it sure felt like one at the uke's end.

During practice I kept digging into my poor partner's bicep which hurt and worked but wasn't quite what he taught. The actual method being taught required less energy/force but was even more effective. And I only figured it out once the Shihan himself kindly came over to help me with it.
