Nodo Tsuki Waza

Hello everyone, I wanted to ask everyone their opinion on the proper way to do this technique. I know that the technique can be dangerous like most others (all have some danger) however because the front of the neck is targeted, I thought I would let us discuss this. What part of the neck is being targeted exactly or are people just using the jugular notch ? What is the safest way to practice this and be effective at the same time?

I have never heard of a nodo tsuki waza, but a punch in the throat (that is what nodo tsuki means) can be lethal, so IŽd be a tad careful in practising that.

Re: Nodo Tsuki Waza

I have always practiced a technique that some refer to as nodo tsuki (to my teacher it was just one of the many kokyu nage). Although, thrusting to the throat comes up more often in my jo practice.

It is performed with an open hand rather than a closed fist. Nage's leading arm will rise and extend, something like a blend of an upper cut and a jab, but with the palm facing uke. Contact can be made on the upper chest (what you may be referring to as the jugular notch area) and slide up to the throat/jaw line.

I don't view this technique as particularly dangerous, but as with most the more sensitive nage and uke are the better.

Re: Nodo Tsuki Waza

I have tried to find some clips on youtube but i cant find specifically what I am talking about. Ive seen Shioda Sensei press his finger in the jugular notch and the uke would fall, I am not sure if that would be considered Nodo Tsuki Nage.

Re: Nodo Tsuki Waza

The neck is more robust then one might assume. I wouldn't worry too much.

As far as hitting a specific point, chances are that unless you are 100% better at physical conflict then your attacker, only chance will allow you to pick a specific point. The most affective method, with all Tsuki (thrusting) techniques is to use a weapon for the thrust.
