Re: How many practice Rokkyo?

We practice rokkyo at our dojo, also known as hijishime (elbow lock). Quite a few variations of it, but basically take the arm as if doing nikkyo, then continue to wind uke's arm up as much as you can. Place your elbow over uke's elbow and then turn your hips into it, a very powerful lock and requires great care not to snap uke's arm.



A difficult problem is easily solved by asking yourself the question, "Just how would the Lone Ranger handle this?"
