Re: Anybody know what this technique is called?
"Video 2 (Starts @ 6 secs) http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aicHsMC6rxM"
The technique is called "SHICHIRIBIKI". It is a jujitsu technique. It is an arrest technique basically but it has many other uses like knife taking, elbow break, immobilisation. Normally you start with this technique and then switch to another technique if you want to switch from arresting to a takedown. They said you can walk many kilometers using this arrest move as you dont need much force to apply this to uke.
In the video, nage starts with shichiribiki then sokumen iriminage. You can also use other takedown techniques like kotegaeshi, shihonage, udekimenage and many others. there are 2 different versions I know which are
1) to grab ukes wrist twisting w/ opposite hand so that uke's palm faces upward and outward, the other arm (nage) underneath putting pressure on ukes elbow upward. Nages arm attacking the elbow is perpendicular to uke arm as much as possible. Nages hand attacking the wrist, you can use just one or 2 fingers to control the wrist downward as this doesnt require much force!
2) same, to grab ukes wrist twisting w/ opposite hand so that uke's palm faces upward and outward, the other arm (nage) underneath putting pressure on ukes elbow upward however this time instead of being perpendicular this hand holds your other wrist if you are nage. This hand then makes a "motorcycle revving" motion outward on the wrist to put pressure on ukes elbow. both hands making motorcycle movements to put pressure. difficult to explain but there maybe videos of this somewhere.
