Re: Shomen Uchi Ikkyo (aikikai style)

The elbow hand is the important one, as long as you can reach the elbow your fine. use your other tegatana to get as high up the arm as is comfortable, even if it's just above the elbow. Once you start cutting the elbow over and their body adjusts you'll be able to slide down to the wrist.
