Just slide your hand holding the elbow up to the forearm/wrist and you're good to go. Lead with the other hand to touch uke's fingers to your chest. The one holding the forearm, maintain 90 degrees bent on uke. You should just about do all that in one movement. Don't forget your centerline vs his.

Draw strength from stillness. Learn to act without acting. And never underestimate a samurai cat.
