Re: Concerns about Hombu dojo shidoin hands - enhancing wrist power

If you grip your right arm around and above the right wrist with the left hand and make a fist and squeeze real tight ( with the right hand) the forearm muscle of the right arm will bulge not the muscle closest to the wrist.

If you open your right hand and stretch the fingers of the right hand you will feel the muscle(s) closet to the right wrist bulging.

I have receive many complaints from ukes that when I extend my fingers of the hand they have difficulty maintaining the grip due to the muscles near the wrist expanding.
