Re: Can,t find yonkyo

I agree that too many people see yonkyo primarily as a "pain" method, and that some uke feel it more than others.
As a pin, it doesn't have to hurt. It does, however, have to ensure that uke cannot rise up again and take control.

Bokuto suburi, especially tsuki, is good for developing yonkyo.

Warning: Do not bend, fold or otherwise abuse... until we get to the dojo..
