Reference: Shiho Nage

Example 1, Tanto Yokomen Shiho Nage Irimi

Movie of Tanto Yokomen Shiho Nage Irimi.

Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Yokomen Uchi Fig. 3 Kuta Punch Fig. 4 Head Under

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start with the spacing such that Uke's extended knife and Nage's extended arm do not quite touch.
  2. Fig. 2 shows Uke's right hand striking at Nage with Yokomen Uchi. The Tanto is held as shown because this is more difficult to defend against. Nage has started moving in and Knee Pop Stomp is very important here!
  3. Fig. 3 shows Nage striking Uke's face. Nage's left arm is making contact with Uke's striking arm. It is easy for Uke to cut Nage's arm. To prevent this Nage must quickly sweep Uke's arm down.
  4. In Fig. 4 Nage has taken Uke's right arm between Uke and Nage and Nage's head is going under Uke's arm.

5. In Fig. 5 Nage has just taken the 2nd Irimi step and Uke is falling. From here Nage takes the Tanto and finishes the Shiho Nage.
