Re: Basic Kamae - What to do when the Nage's fingers get grabbed

tough call though. against someone who knows what they are doing like the chin-na folks, might as well sacrifice the finger(s) and kick the bugger, that is if you could at all. found this reversal which is kinda interesting against a nikkyo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKrAFjsXqTM&NR=1 of course if you ran into fingers like those of rock climbers, they are pretty tough to deal with.
Phil:

There was absolutely no kazushi in that video clip, so it is not surprising that this person had an opportunity to do a counter. If the nikyo was executed with the person's center being disturbed, I do not think that the person would be so successful in countering. I think that some people make a mistake of simply attacking the wrist (or any particular joint with joint locks) on a nikyo without any connection and unbalancing (or jamming) of the person's center.
