  5. Fig. 5 shows Nage twisting Uke's arms to break the grip of Uke's left hand on the pommel of the Boken. Uke's instructions are to hang on as tenaciously as possible. Nage must release the grip without harming Uke.

  7. Fig. 7 shows in detail Nage's left hand pushing the pommel of the Boken to force Uke's left hand to release the pommel of the Boken without struggling to pull it away.
  8. Fig. 8 shows Nage's right hand holding Uke's right hand and the Boken in a Nikkyo grip. Nage's left hand is holding the pommel of the Boken beneath Uke's arm to apply ample torque to Uke's wrist.

  4. In Fig. 12 Nage's left hand has taken an Ikkyo grip just above Uke's elbow. This should be easy because Uke's shoulder and upper arm would come up to protect Uke's face from the Kuta Punch.
