San Shin from Kumi Uchi

Published by at 12:01 am under Bujinkan Training Drills

When someone gets you in their mighty Judo Grip, which I hear is the most powerful grip (kung-fu grip comes a close second), what should you do?  Well if you are in the Bujinkan, I can tell you what your most likely response is.  Matching the grip right?

This should not be necessarily the case.  If someone wants to grapple with you so why should you follow their lead?  You fight how you want, not how they want right?

So here is my first Bujinkan Training drill in a long time, san shin from Kumi uchi.  On person grabs in kumi uchi, the tori goes through the sanshin  (left and right) from Kumi Uchi.  This is done with both people with a right lead, left lead, one with right one with left, hand positions for the uke reversed, both hands collar grab, double wrist grabs…

I could go on for ever, but I won’t, just give it a try if you run a class and let me know how it goes.

Your life is on the line, train well.
