Re: Need Picture of O-Sensei doing Jo Trick

That was a really good explanation! I totally agree about not bracing and so does my teacher who specifically teaches us to not brace the back leg as well. I don't actually know how to take advantage of that weakness if someone it bracing - other than I don't think they can move as quickly I can since their leg is locked into a position. Last I heard Donna Winslow sensei was in Amsterdam, so I've been trying to think who I can contact at her old dojo in St. Jerome that might have her email. I'll get in touch with her. I suprised no one else on this board has any pictures of this really cool trick.
