Just as in the Ikkyo
maneuver the entrance to the attack is an irimi. The attacker's strike is deflected and redirected in the footwork and bodywork of the irimi - as the nage shifts the movement towards the
right and down.
This enables the nage to
setup the attacker's wrist for the nikkyo lock, then the arm is used
to redirect movement towards his center.
The attacker's balance is lost, and another entrance is made to disable and bring him to the ground.
Nikkyo Var. 1,
Angle 1 (above)
