I never use wrist techniques

I noticed I never use wrist techniques. I'm more likely to use udegaeshi than kotegaeshi. I just thought that was strange since Aikido is famous for it's wrist techniques.

Re: I never use wrist techniques

That might just be a personal preference. I noticed I used to sometimes slip up into nikkyo. I rarely if ever ever end up using other wrist technique like kotegaeshi or arm locks like udegaeshi but udegaeshi is nice to know if nikkyo fails

Re: I never use wrist techniques

In emptyhand context, most wrist control techniques are low-percentage.This is in part why Aikido is not considered to be a particularly practical system for modern-day self-defense.

I never thought of wrist techniques to be ineffective. I just never use them in randori or competition. Usually I use elbow techniques or atemi waza. I've had shihonage used effective on me in randori. Shihonage is really a wrist technique.

You have many ideas that would be sorted out by one sparring session with a Judoka.

Re: I never use wrist techniques

I've used Tomiki against people in Judo randori for shits and giggles. Even yudansha. What's your point?

Re: I never use wrist techniques

One of our club members attended a seminar and watched a sandan test, supervised by Saotome sensei. For the randori portion, the woman did no techniques but simply evaded all attacks. The shihan stood up and applauded. Most took this to be a good sign for her test results.

Are you claiming that you've taken down Judo black belts with wristlocks?

Re: I never use wrist techniques

The point of this entire thread is that I never use wristlocks even though I'm an Aikido practioner. So to answer your question no I haven't. But I've used udegaeshi against them which is a elbow technique but it's similar to kotegaeshi which is a wrist technique. What was your point in saying

I've said many times that I don't use wrist techniques so what are you trying to say?

Re: I never use wrist techniques

Could you give this some context? Do you mean in randori?

Re: I never use wrist techniques

Sorry I guess I wasn't being clear enough. I'm trying to say I never use wrist techniques in randori.
