Nikkyo - ura
Variation 1, Angle 1
In this version of
Katatori Nikkyo, the attacker grabs the victim's right lapel. Her left hand moves to strike the attacker's face (breaks his concentration), but drops as she slides back.
She grabs the hand of the attacker - stepping back moving slightly off center towards the
left. The attacker is
off-balance. Turning her hips counter - clockwise towards him, her
shoulders follow suit aiding her to pull the his grasp off her
shoulder. She uses nikkyo, which is the bending of the uke's wrist
(keeps the joint and associated muscles and tendons taut). Keeping
nikkyo, she redirects the attacker's arm to his one-point and performs
tenkan around her attacker, leading his arm with a downwards arc (through-motion), as her
hips drop, weight shifts and she turns into the mat in a downward spiral-like
motion. Her uke's stance has been further unbalanced and he is
absorbed into the Aiki movement of the ura-turning.
Ura can be characterized as movement that attacks
balance by the redirection of the attack around the assailant himself.
She then can bring him down and pin
him with two traditional sit-down pins.
