In General Nikkyo with Victor Entry Tools Rate This Entry

What an interesting class. We worked on Nikkyo. I for the entire hour and a half with Victor, I got some of it, still not quite to the I move in the right direction mode with it yet. Sensie described the waves of motion to us, while demonstrating. Most people don't take their uke low enough, so that the nikkyo becomes a contest of strength, go lower, use your forearm to control the ukes arm, then do the hand grab, then start up, as the Uke comes up, use your back leg and go down, the force is much greater, and the position much better. At the end make sure you give the Uke room to go into as you bring them down to the mat.

Sensei also showed us the reversal for the technique, it was interesting as it brought out the idea of control of a situation. Who really has it, most of it is thought, and making sure that you are doing, not waiting for an opening.

This tied in somehow with always looking at your opponent, being ready always.

The Uke should try to come around to face the Nage, so that they can grab the forward leg and push the Nage over, the Nage should do their best to not allow the Uke into this position.

There was a glimpse into something bigger and more spiritual in here, I intuited and understood some of it, but not enough to get it into a concrete series of thoughts. Probably partially working with my body which I am sure has a lot of stored in it, and partially being in the space where working on this stuff is not only Ok but expected to be worked on.

I got to be a crash test dummy again! Wow, it is so smooth being placed on the mat by sensei.
