Re: Saito Sensei & the no-hands throw

I find the whole idea of 'eating' a strike to get 'inside' interesting. I can see how it might work with empty handed strikes, but what happens when the hand has a blade in it? Are you going to eat a stab to gain advantage? If you train to take a blow first, isn't this going to put you at a distinct advantage when the assailant is armed?

just a few thoughts,



Success is having what you want. Happiness is wanting what you have.
