In General Kokyu and yonkyo Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Today I went out to the YMCA where a fellow student is starting to teach. He showed me something so simple but I immediately noticed the enormous effect that it had. Up until now I had always struggled with yonkyo because I couldn't figure out how to place my wrists in the right position in order to effectively do the technique. Typically this leads to struggling with the technique and that turns into trying to throw uke versus doing the technique. Today I learned that if I grab uke's wrist at an angle and hold his wrist the same way I hold a sword, then I don't have to throw uke, the technique will do that naturally. Can't wait to get back to the dojo to try this out some more.
