Re: Alternative Method fo Sankyo
Ok, I think the subtle difference is that I'm applying Nikyo at the same time as Sankyo. HOWEVER, the my focul point is on the shoulder, the bones in the forearm, the neck, and Uke's center; rather than the tendons and ligaments in the wrist and forearm (which is how I've always seen it done).
Also there is some small footwork involved which doesn't use any type of Tenkan or circular steps. I also strike at the same time as I flick my hips toward Uke's center.
I really need to get my hands on a video camera.
