Jo Tsuki Aiki Back Attack

Reference: Back Off Balance

This topic covers Jo defenses done Aikikuta style.

CHOKES ARE DANGEROUS. SEE THE CHOKE WARNING. It is not shown here but when Uke attempts to choke, Nage's chin pulls down to Nage's chest tightening the neck muscles and Nage's shoulders shrug up to Nage's ears. Do not allow Uke to get a good choke as shown here except for training.

Example 1, Jo Tsuki Aiki Choke Ai-hammi.

Movie of Jo Tsuki Aiki Choke Ai-hammi.

Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Parry Fig. 3 Strike Throat

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start with Uke and Nage spaced so that their weapons don't quite touch.
  2. In Fig. 2 Uke thrust with Jo Tsuki and Nage parries while entering as in Entry Arm.
  3. Fig. 4 shows Nage thrusting at Uke's throat as Nage enters for the choke.

    Fig. 4 Catch Neck Fig. 5 Choke

  4. Fig. 5 shows Nage catching Uke's throat with the Jo.
  5. In Fig. 6 Nage's left hand releases the Jo and reaches behind Uke's head to grab the Jo on the opposite side of Uke's head. This creates a triangle around Uke's neck formed by Nage's crossed arms and the Jo. From here Nage could drop back and down to break Uke's neck.

Example 2, Jo Tsuki Aiki Choke Gyaku Gamae.

Movie of Jo Tsuki Aiki Choke Gyaku Gamae.

Fig. 6 Start Fig. 7 Parry Fig. 8 Catch Throat

  1. Fig. 6 shows the start position with Uke and Nage spaced so that their weapons do not quite touch.
  2. In Fig. 7 Uke thrusts with Jo Tsuki and Nage parries as in Entry Arm.
  3. Fig. 8 shows Nage catching Uke's neck for the choke. For consistency Nage should have thrust to Uke's neck when coming in to catch Uke's neck.

    Fig. 9 Choke

  4. In Fig. 9 Nage's right hand has released the Jo and reached behind Uke's head to catch the Jo on the opposite side of Uke's head for the choke. Uke's neck is in a triangle formed by Nage's crossed arms and the Jo. At this point Nage can step back and drop to break Uke's neck.
