Re: Saito Sensei & the no-hands throw

I know a no-hand throw... It does not require any hands -- in fact, it's so you can keep a pint of warm ale in your hands. Uke grabs tori's front shirt with right hand. Tori steps so that tori's left shoulder is under uke's right elbow... need I continue or can everyone work it out from there?

No ki, just body movement and mechanics.

The people who understand, understand prefectly.
