Re: Yokomenuchi

It seems pretty clear that yokomen uchi is actually different things in different schools. At the end of the day it's not a biggie - do whatever the sensei in front of you is telling you to do. The idea of yokomen is to deal with lateral attacks of some sort. This can be tested by asking people to throw any lateral attack - hook, cross, round kick etc. Some of the more mischevious amongst us may argue that we should spend more time training against the actual attacks we're likely to see rather than representitive one with faith that it will prepare us for the real thing. *shrug*
