I like shihonage. The idea is to learn to protect yourself all around on every corner.

Is it possible? To create a technique so powerful that you are protected all around all the time.

Trying to develop this kind of technique over the years has taught me many humbling lessons.

Shihonage is one of the more difficult techniques to perform with multiple attackers. It's much easier to perform kokyunage, or tenchinage, or ikkyo kokyunage. It's hard getting around the idea of having to turn your back when you have more than one person attacking.

The funny thing, is that when it is performed correctly, Uke, or your attacker is the one protecting you!

I'm going back to practice soon, but this is one of the things I don't think I'll ever forget. The left right, omote and ura should keep a person protected from any of the four directions, hence the name "four directions". Your blog is very good, sorry I only have dial up and can't really get the video portions properly
