Re: The Principle of Sutemi

Hi David,
I was exposed to Mochizuki's sutemi waza early 70-ties by a man called Cleriot from France, he was a Yoseikan exponent, in the same period I have trained extensively with Jacques Normand who stayed end sixties early seventies in Shizuoka dojo. Those people gave me the impression, sutemi waza was (is) a very important item in their training.
In a book written by Hiroo Mochizuki, printed in 1971, sutemi waza is well documented. The uke's for Hiroo are Coquet, Normand and Pons.
