Re: My Jiu Waza Needs Help

Oh no, not again. I came back to this thread to actually add something to it and I come across Michael's post. Once again I find myself agreeing with the brutish Yoshinkan guy. I'll just add that I agree with what he said

Michael Stuempel wrote:
1. *Always* move forward. Never backward. Don't wait in one spot, either
2. Do complete pivots when you pivot. Don't just move slightly, but use the control over uke that it gives you
3. Keep you kamae and stand straight. Don't bend over.
4. Complete your throw (zanshin). Don't rush it.

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
