The latest in the "It Had to Be Felt" series is now available, this time on Nemoto Hiroki (7th dan) written by Mitch Troop. From the essay: "Whenever he had me in an nikkyo or sankyo lock, I had nowhere to go to escape the pain. Instead, I would go wherever he directed my body, not because I was compliant, but because I had no choice. I remember once asking some Russian uchi-deshi how they were enjoying their morning training and their answer was a half-joking, but also half-serious reply of, 'Every day he breaks us.'"
