Re: Can't find yonkyo

Funny...This just came up on my current test.....

It seems that the radial nerve they told me to press for Yonkyo isn't on that spot. The radial is actually on the backside of the wrist, not the inner part. What was being pressed was the tendon on the bone. No wonder yonkyo hurts the next day.

My grip uses the knuckle on the thumb to press the radial nerve. Seems to work better for me and Uke feels it for sure.
