Re: Alternative Method fo Sankyo

Congratulations, then. You may have just rediscovered sankyo.
I guess so.

Let me ask you a question. When Sankyo is applied to you, where do you feel tension, pressure, and pain?

Usually I only feel it in my wrist and part of my forearm. And it is only pain. I usually just stand there while Nage torques away with a puzzled look and saying, "why isn't this working?"

And I always think, "because all you are doing it twisting my wrist and forearm!"

The only few times when Sankyo was applied to me and it worked, I didn't feel anything at all and it was more of a throw than a lock. And that was done by a 6th dan in Daito-Ryu. My sensei in another art can do it, but he does it even differently and it is very painful but still localized.

Maybe it's just me?
