Side Attack Swinging Gate

Reference: Side Control

Movie of Side Attack Swinging Gate.

Fig. 1 Start of Swinging Gate Fig. 2 Strike Fig. 3 Catch Neck

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start. Nage was still falling to the ground as Uke starts to jump onto Nage, probably in a side mount.
  2. Fig. 2 shows Nage striking Uke by rolling onto Nage's right side and pushing up with Nage's right shoulder. This is an application of Swinging Gate.
  3. In Fig. 3 Nage catches the back of Uke's neck with Nage's striking hand and pulls Uke's head down.

    Fig. 4 Leg Catches Head Fig. 5 Take Arm Lock

  4. Fig. 4 shows Nage's leg catching Uke's Head to take the arm lock.
  5. Fig. 5 shows Nage coming over Uke's Head with the arm lock.

    Fig. 6 Roll Uke Over Fig. 7 Pin Arm

  6. Fig. 6 shows Nage rolling Uke onto Uke's stomach for the pin.
  7. Fig. 7 shows a no hands pin. A real fight is not sport. People talk about submitting Uke in a fight. That is crazy. Uke will just attack again and this time Uke might kill Nage. Not good! On the other hand there are unpleasant consequences to killing or breaking Uke like going to prison or being executed. A no hands pin allows me to use Hojo Jitsu to tie Uke. If Uke fights too much then Nage has a legitimate reason to break Uke because Nage could not safely control Uke.
