In General 2nd February, 2005 - Nikkyo can be done Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #14 New 02-01-2005 03:26 PM
During yesterday's practice, I worked with a big, heavy-set, muscular, twice-my-size and not very flexible guy. He was huge and built like a ton of bricks.

Anyway, as nage, I was practicing nikkyo and couldn't get his arm & wrist to do what I (thought) needed it to do. After several attempts, I was sure that nikkyo didn't work on big guys.

To my surprise (and strike to my ego), our sensei showed me the technique with the big guy and was able to perform it properly and smoothly. He made the guy look like jelly.

So - lesson learned: If you can't do it, then you're probably doing it wrong.

After sensei did his thing, I tried again and was finally able to do the same. I sincerely hope it was due to my learing the technique instead of the big uke just pretending and faking it for me. That would suck.

Cheers.
