Re: What's in a yonkyo?

Still an interesting topic for discussion though......(but yeah, kind of weird)
Our Shihan (Kato Sensei) does not aim at placing his pressure on the nerve point, but as you are planted the pressure focuses to that place.
Sword cutting is very prominent in his motion, but the pressure appears when he has you in the pin.
Combination I think, with intent, makes the best effect.

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
