No offence Bruce, but I'm not looking for a Sport vs TMA debate. Just good counters to such a technique.
Point well taken Chris, not trying to start that
Drum technique. Best defense...no be there.
Tenkan into his shikaku, or irimi into his shikaku - distance and timing (maai) would be essential to make it work. Same defense as a hundred other attacks. Concentrate on the principle not the technique.
And in seeing the whole video, I wouldn't even worry about that technique - the big guy could have finished off the little guy 100 times, but he was just practicing that neat little shoulder check on a willing particpant (he just stood there and took it).
