Re: Can,t find yonkyo

I like yonkyo...it is challenging.

For me it reminds me the most literally of sword work. Having the hands move congruently with the hips helps. Some people can't ever feel the pain of the pressure point, yet the technique can become dependable though repeated practice.

When you have your hands on uke don't use your fingertips... use your whole hands instead. I focus on taking balance rather than looking for pain. Patience.. definilty with yourself and each uke...because they all different.
Just some random thoughts...have fun
