Editors Note: This is the third in an eight part series discussing past seminars at our school. The entire series can be found under the video category.
This is a cool technique. Here, Bernath Sensei is cutting uke into kokyu-nage, from shomen. What’s interesting is the throw—Sensei drops to one knee, forcing uke into breakfall. Chris Rozette, one of our early instructors, is uke.
Man, this next video is great. I can’t help but smile when I watch it. If I were to classify it, I’d call it a study in kokyu-nage, with a koshi- and a dynamite shiho-nage added to the mix. (After Neil takes a tumble following an atemi from Sensei.) For me, the highlight is that spectacular irimi-nage. Enjoy!
Next up…more Bernath Sensei, and then Donovan Waite Sensei. Stay tuned!
