Koryu uchinadi - Volume 5: Joint manipluation & pressure points

Joint Manipulation Techniques 


This informal video presentation is the first of three tapes highlighting the December 2000 open seminar in Antwerp, Belgium.


This seminar-style presentation kicks off with a 30-minute commentary on technical theories, application practices and the historical premise of kata, by Patrick McCarthy.


The main body of the tape is dedicated to learning a two-person close-quarters drill that features the elbows, knees, head-butting, joint-locking, thigh kicking and bumping into a single practice. The rest of this informal video presentation covers two unique takedowns and follow-up ground control, several applications for the hand-position and bunny-hops of Chinte kata, joint manipulation, a few pressure points and cavity seizing for pain compliance control. Packed with educational value, this informal presentation is not a step-by-step “how-to” instructional video, but rather, made for those who participated in the seminar for the purpose of reviewing what they had already learned. Shot with a professional digital camera and easy to follow, this informal seminar-style video presentation is not made with the same quality, as is an in-studio post-produced production. However, its low price also reflects this element, too.


Running time is about two-hours.

Ideal for beginner to advanced practitioner.
