Re: Escape from ikkyo ??

While the form of ikkyo looks like it is forward, I was taught that the feeling is straight down. Thus, in a perfectly executed ikkyo, the uke's legs fly up as their chest goes into the mat. There is no option to roll out on their left arm, which needs to hit the mat first to stop a face plant. This requires a fully-committed attack and a completely non-resistant defence.

Best regards,
