Ude Guruma Yubi Waza
[Armlock with Finger Brace]
This armlock is ideal to use on a larger person or if you have small hands. It's an excellent alternative to the wrist press armlock & is now used by a number of major law-enforcement agencies. Once set you have a great deal of control over the person & it can be quite painful - so use caution! This technique is shown as a reaction to a right hit. It could be used for a variety of other techniques as well. Your initial response might have to be different, depending upon the attack or situation. It can be used from a desensitizing "come with me" hold [law-enforcement: low level of force] all the way to an overhead knife or club attack or high knife slash. Thanks to Marc Kolodziejczyk, for being my uke and Sensei Marc Tucker for the photography.

Ready Position

Block his hit to your right with a circular crossblock as you sidestep to your left & towards his right side

Grab his wrist with your right hand & pull him forward slightly to off-balance him. Your left hand comes up under his elbow, with his elbow resting in the palm of your hand. Your thumb is next to your fingers [don't grab his elbow] & your fingers are pointing up.

Lift & rotate his elbow forward in a clockwise direction as you bring his wrist down & back in the same clockwise movement.

Start to change the grip on the attacker's wrist as you bring his elbow forward & start to bring his arm up behind his back.

Bring his arm up behind his back. Start to bring his elbow into the crook of your arm [between your upper arm and your body].

Slide your right hand up the back of his hand, pressing it toward his elbow, to force his hand open.

Slide your hand up so you're setting a wrist press. Note that his hand is at a right angle to his forearm and that your your right hand/fingers are at a right angle to his hand. You can stop at this point and you have a "proper hold." The pressure you apply to the attacker's wrist will control him as long as his elbow is in the crook of your arm.

Slide your hand up & grab 2-3 of the attacker's fingers.

Initial Responses for Knife at Throat
Attacker Behind You
A knife at your throat from behind is a serious threat to your life [understatement]. If the person wants your possessions [money, jewelry, car, etc ...] give it to the assailant. They can all be replaced. YOU CAN'T! However, here are some initial responses that can be used to get the knife away from your throat if you have to defend yourself. You must immediately continue on with a follow-through technique to remove yourself from imminent danger. Four responses are shown below. There are others. The responses are graded from "OK" to "BEST". In reality, however, what works best for you is dependent upon your knowledge, skill, experience and yes, strength. Thanks to Roy Gutierrez for being my uke and Marc Kolodziejczyk for the photography.

#1: Pull-down: Grab his knife hand and wrist.

Pull it down from your neck & against your chest. Do NOT pull it away from you. [OK] Weakness: If the attacker is significantly stronger than you this won't work.

#2 Push: Hit or push his arm [at elbow] in direction of the knife.

11/06/2009 10:19

Knife at Throat

http://www.budoshin.com/tech2.htm

Be sure to turn your head away from the knife & hold his arm in place as you continue. [Better] Weakness: You're not effectively controlling the weapon at this point.

#3: Push-Pull: Grab his right wrist with your left hand & push his right elbow as in #2 above.

Turn your head away from the knife as you pull down with your left hand. Hold his arm and knife hand tight against your body to restrict movement. [Much better than #2] Weakness: Not much except as you execute any type of technique you still have to be very much aware of the knife. Good follow throughs include drop throws [otoshi].

Knife at Throat

http://www.budoshin.com/tech2.htm

#4 Push-Slide: Bring your right hand up to strike his right upper arm at the elbow.

As you push his arm across, turning your head away from the knife, your left hand starts to slide up under his forearm, palm facing you.

Continue upward slide of your left hand as you finish pushing his arm. Keep your hand against your face as you do this counter. [BEST] Weakness: The back of your left hand or forearm could be cut if he can slide back, but your face & neck are relatively well-protected. It's easy to go into a shoulderlock rear takedown [ude guruma ushiro] from this point.

Te Nage [Hand Throw]
or

Mae Heji Maki [Forward Elbow Roll Takedown]
For a rear forearm choke attack and a knife coming up at your throat. Who thought of this attack? Charles Choi wanted my input on what to do for such an attack. Just a bit of theory: Even though the knife poses the greatest threat, the rear forearm choke will prevent you from effectively defending yourself against the knife. Therefore you have ot get out of the choke. To make it a bit more realistic have your "attacker" arch you back a bit -- it changes your balance. I showed this combination attack from a standing position. [No, my feet weren't in any particular position & I wasn't concerned about his foot position either.] Thanks to Roy Gutierrez for being my uke and Robert Farmer for taking the pictures.

Attacker sets right forearm choke. Your right arm automatically comes up & rests on his elbow.

Attacker brings knife up to you with his left hand. Your left hand immediately comes up to block. You don't know if it's to stab you or threaten you. However, it's life-threatening & must be dealt with.

Block his knife hand at the base of his arm with your left forearm, with your hand open.

1 of 7

11/06/2009 10:20

Te Nage or Mae Heji Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech3.htm

Trap his knife hand with your left hand & keep the knife away from you. You must keep hold of his arm, at the wrist & keep it bent, so he can't straighten it out & develop more power for secondary thrusts. Keep hold of his wrist at ALL costs [to avoid being stabbed].

Push his knife hand away as you pivot your right foot back so you can move your body to his right side. Raise his right elbow up as you turn your head to your left to get out of the headlock. Even though the knife poses a more serious threat, the headlock is preventing you from effectively defending against the knife. You could use a foot stomp or other distracting technique prior to this move.

Notice how head slips out of rear forearm choke. Normally a person cannot concentrate on two things at once. Getting out of the rear forearm choke is possible because the attacker is concentrating on his left hand.

Step your left foot back as you get out of the rear forearm choke. Keep hold of his left wrist, bringing his knife hand across his body.

Te Nage or Mae Heji Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech3.htm

Your right hand grabs hold of his wrist, with your left thumb on the back of his hand, to set him up for a Te Nage [Hand Throw]. Keep hold of his wrist with your left hand at this point.

Switch your left hand to apply additional pressure to the back of attacker's left hand, so that you can bend his wrist, locking his wrist for a hand throw.

This picture shows the above grip from another angle. Note thumb placement.

From this point you will execute a standard Te Nage [Hand Throw] by pivoting your right foot to your right and back in a circle as you continue to apply pressure to the back of his hand with both of your thumbs. Do not turn his hand. Hold your arms in the same position relative to your body as you turn your body to your right to execute the throw.

3 of 7

11/06/2009 10:20

Te Nage or Mae Heji Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech3.htm

Execution of throw as attacker is about to flip over. Note that his left arm is tight across the front of his body. Be careful in executing the Te Nage. If done properly it may break the attacker's wrist if not executed slowly enough so that you can roll out of it in practice.

Once the attacker is down you may want to execute a heel strike to his face as a distraction. If his wrist is broken at this point no further steps are necessary. I'm moving on because ju-jitsu people never "assume" anything will work.

Once the attacker is down drop down & execute a wrist press at this point to force the attacker to release the knife. If the wrist press is executed quickly the wrist will break. If his wrist is already broken from the Te Nage you won't be able to do this. There are also several other submissions that could be done from this point.

Te Nage or Mae Heji Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech3.htm

My original plan was to follow the above defense to the point shown in this picture and then deal exclusively with the attacker's right elbow, using a Mae Heji Maki [Forward Elbow-roll Takedown], as shown below. However, the technique shown above, using the Te Nage, was my initial response when actually confronted with the attack & I still feel it's a better response because the knife hand is under greater control. On the other hand, the technique that follows could also be one of many other effective techniques, especially if a distraction strike, nerve attack, etc., is used somewhere in the initial moves following blocking the knife, so that you can move quickly into the rear forearm choke release.

Once you are behind the attacker your left hand grabs his right wrist. Continue to apply pressure to the underside of his elbow so he can't turn towards you & attack with his knife hand.

Close up showing grip on his right wrist and placement of your right hand on his elbow. It's in a Sara [cupped position] so it can rotate and apply continuous pressure to the attacker's elbow from the underside or back of the elbow. Keep the sara on the underside of his elbow for most effective leverage.

5 of 7

11/06/2009 10:20

Te Nage or Mae Heji Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech3.htm

Roll his elbow forward, keeping his arm slightly bent, to bring the attacker forward . . .

. . to the ground.

Once the attacker is down, squat down & set your left knee on his back, moving his right arm into an armlock position against your left hip, resting on your left thigh. Command attacker to turn his head away from you. You may shid=ft your wieght onto his right shoulder to encourage this action at this point. It will actually be more comfortable for the attacker/uke if he turns his head away as his right shoulder will be flat on the ground. On the other hand, if he attempts to resist from this position, it will be far more painful as you have significantly more leverage.

Remove the knife from the attacker's left hand if he still has it. Once his right arm is locked in this position, you don't need to hold onto it. It's very important that you stay on your right foot & not go

down onto your right knee. If you do, most of your weight will be on your right knee and not on the attacker. By staying on your right foot you can shift as much of your weight as necessary to secure compliance by the attacker. If you execute this submission quickly you can easily cause quite severe injury to the uke's/attacker's shoulder, so be careful.

Ude Guruma Makikomi
Figure-4 Armbar Winding Throw Setup
Setting up an attacker for a Figure-4 armbar can be achieved 100% of the time if you follow these simple setup steps - even against a taller attacker. It took me about a year in Prof. Seki's class to figure out how to set up a figure-4 armbar properly with a 100% success rate. Seki usually let us figure out the "fine points" of the art ourselves. If I figured something out Seki would say, "Ah, Joji [Japanese for George]. You finally figured it out. Good!" He did that to all of his students. Yes, he always called me "Joji." Thanks to Frank Blaney for being my uke and Marc Kolodziejczyk for the photography.

Block the attacker's arm to your left as you step in.

Wrap your left arm over his arm, connecting your forearm to the outer [up] side of his elbow. This is the first key part in successfully setting up the armbar.

This is the same move as above, shown from the rear view. His elbow can be at a right angle to the ground, or slightly higher and you can still successfully set up the figure-4 armbar if you make your connection with your forearm to the outer side of his elbow.

1 of 4

11/06/2009 10:20

Ude Guruma Makikomi

http://www.budoshin.com/tech4.htm

Once you have connected with the outer edge of his elbow bring his arm tight against your side as you rotate his elbow with your left forearm [your forearm moves to your right and becomes horizontal to the ground as you rotate his arm] so that his elbow is eventually is pointing to the ground. Rotating his elbow is the second key element is setting up the figure-4 armbar.

Rest your right hand on the attacker's shoulder as you complete the rotation of his arm. Notice that his arm is now resting closer to my elbow. Do not let your arm slip as you rotate his elbow. Also notice that all of my fingers and thumb are resting on his shoulder.

Setting up the figure-4 armbar is completed by resting your left hand, including your thumb, on your right upper forearm. Your rotation of his elbow will also have off-balanced the attacker and set him up for the throw, which should be a snap. Pardon the pun.] To execute the throw simply apply a little upward pressure with you left forearm & downward pressure with your right hand. As the attacker goes up onto his toes just pivot your right foot back counterclockwise to complete the throw. CAUTION: Setting a figure-4 armbar as instructed in this sequence will result in an extremely tight armbar at his elbow. Be sure to let up on the pressure on your uke's elbow as you execute the throw. Otherwise a dislocated elbow may be unavoidable.

http://www.budoshin.com/tech4.htm

Having trouble with a taller attacker. Just deliver a quick snap kick with the ball of your foot to the outside front of his right thigh.

That should cause him to drop down momentarily so you can set up the armbar. Then, if he stands back up [unless you've already thrown him] he'll set his own figure-4 armbar & will really cooperating with you.

Shoulder-lock Drop Throw
03/03

This is a defense for a knife in your back, with your back arched. Practice this defense slowly to achieve smoothness. It is an extremely fast technique once proficiency is achieved because your constantly working in a circle. Be careful though. You can't complete this technique without posing the risk of serious injury to your workout partner. Be sure to check my footwork as you learn this technique. Footwork is always critical. Thanks to Sean Gallimore for being my uke and Marc Kolodziejczyk for the photography.

Attacker has you in a secure rear forearm choke, with a knife in your back at kidneys & your back arched. This is a very difficult attack to defend against. Please be aware that there is a reasonable chance that you might get cut in the process of defending yourself from this attack.

Swing your left arm back, deflecting his knife arm to his left as you turn in [to your right] tightly to him. You cannot turn away from the forearm choke as the attacker will be able to maintain it and keep you from turning either way.

Raise your right arm straight out & up against the inside bottom of his upper arm just above his elbow. Note that my right foot has stepped back to in between his feet.

As your bringing your right arm up push his right forearm down against your chest with an open hand. This will help take the pressure off the choke.

Continue to hold his arm against your chest as you raise his left arm. Once you get your arm up [notice straight line between my left shoulder to right elbow which is keeping in line with the attacker's right shoulder -- I've actually lowered my center of gravity slightly] bend it towards the attacker to trap his arm & keep it from sliding away or off.

Bring your right forearm down [see next pix for front view] as you turn your body to your left. Make sure you keep your body straight & head up so you can trap his forearm.

Wristlock Takedown & Press
[3/03]
This is a defense for a knife in your back & a forearm choke with your back straight. This is a more difficult situation than having your back arched as you don't have any "wiggle room." Be sure to check my footwork as you learn this technique. Footwork is always critical. Thanks to Sean Gallimore for being my uke and Marc Kolodziejczyk for the photography.

Attacker has a knife in my back & has a secure rear forearm choke. This is a very difficult attack to defend against. Please be aware that there is a reasonable chance that you might get cut in the process of defending yourself from this attack.

Slightly swing your hips to your right & immediately strike back against his left forearm at the same time. Both actions will cause the knife to flatten between your back & his front. This will only save you temporarily.

Attacker's natural reaction is to probably pull his knife hand [& knife] out & away from you so he can stab you. Don't forget to look at where my feet are going.

Carotid Artery Press Fix

Carotid Artery Press Fix
[Figure-4 Neck Nerve Press]

The Carotid Artery Press can be an extremely effective means of putting your opponent out -- quickly. Unfortunately it also poses a high risk of serious injury or death if not applied properly throughout execution of the hold.

The problem occurs in a street situation where the assailant may be trying to get away from you or you're not properly balanced as you bring him down while he's still resisting OR already unconscious. Note the space between the opponent's back and the defender's front. This space creates injury potential to the assailant's neck or upper back vertebre [below neck] as they are not being properly supported.

To properly execute the brace you must maintain close body contact with as much of his back as possible. This can easily be accomplished by taking a step towards the attacker as the hold is set. With one leg [thigh] against the back of one of his legs or against his buttocks, you can remain balanced & in control while at the same time protecting your assailant from serious injury. This will reduce the chance of serious injury or death. This is very difficult to do in a street situation. As a result many law enforcement agencies limit the use of this "choke" to "life & death" situations. Be sure to release pressure on your opponent if he is cooperative, becomes unconscious, or any other medical trauma [e.g., convulsions]

Cross-Cheek Press Takedown
[3/07]
= This technique may be used as a safer alternative to the figure-4 carotid restraint hold. However, you must still use caution with this technique.

This is the figure-4 carotid restraint hold. While it is an extremely effective submission hold, there are numerous risks of injury to the restrained person due to the nature of the technique. These risks must be weighed in deciding whether or not to use this restraint.

The Cross-Cheek Press Takedown is an effective means of removing, subduing or controlling an attacker from behind. Step up behind the attacker, bringing your right forearm up across his right cheekbone and starting to turn his head to your left and against you.

At the same time your left palm pushes down on the top of his left rear "cheek", placing him off balance. [See balance points in my book Jujitsu Nerve Techniques]. Sometimes this type of action is called the "concept of opposites".

Change your open hand to a closed fist as your turn his head

Cross-Cheek Press Takedown

against your chest.

Your left hand grabs onto your right fist, pulling it towards you. This should place pressure on the infraorbital nerve [facial buccal branch] , meridan point ST-2, which can be very painful.

Bring the attacker down to the ground, holding his head against your chest. You should go down onto your right knee so you can provide proper support against the attacker's back.

Your left hand reaches down and grabs his left forearm [your palm down] to bring attacker's left arm into an armlock as you . . .

. . . turn the attacker to your left bringing him down onto the ground.

Cross-Cheek Press Takedown

http://www.budoshin.com/tech7.htm

This pinning portion/movement of the technique is very difficult to do slowly & may seem very awkward if done so. However, for safety reasons go as slowly as possible. As the attacker goes down to the ground your will be able to use his downward momentum to assist in maintaining the hold as you move your right leg over his body to his right side.

Moving your right leg over his body allows you to remain on top of him as he goes down onto his stomach. At this point you can release the Cross-Cheek Press and retain control with the armlock. Releasing the Cross-Cheek Press will also allow you to establish a much safer and more comfortable position for yourself and the opponent.

[3/07]

This takedown is another safe alternative to the figure-4 carotid neck restraint. In addition to pressing down on the bridge of the nose, it also eliminates the person's vision until they are down; a fairly disorienting asset.

This is the figure-4 carotid restraint hold. While it is an extremely effective submission hold, there are numerous risks of injury to the restrained person due to the nature of the technique. These risks must be weighed in deciding whether or not to use this restraint.

Come up behind opponent, crossing your right forearm over left [or left over right] sliding down over his eyes.

Continue to bring your hands/forearms down so that wrist that's underneath is resting on the bridge of his nose.

Bring your hands/forearms down a bit more as you pull opponent's head towards your chest.

Nidan Kata
The kata presented below are the additional forms a shodan candidate needs to learn for the kata portion of the nidan test in Budoshin Ju-Jitsu. The pictures, taken by Jared Wynn, are meant to provide assistance in understanding the form, not specific step-by-step photos of how to do each kata. To the right of the pictures is the name of the technique, its "number" in the Big Book, and my notes on how to execute the technique. Thanks to Jeff Wynn for putting all of this together. They were originally presented at the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu 2007 Summer Camp in Santa Clarita, CA.

1 - NAWA NO UDE MAKIKOMI (56)
Winding Arm Throw with Rope BInd [Dealing with a knife-thrust to the stomach] EXPLANATION: Uke attempts to gut you with a knifethrust. This is a life-threatening attack and must be dealt with aggressively. You first pivot out of the way of the knife thrust by rotating your right foot back. Grab his knife hand with your right hand at his wrist from on top. Use a knife-edge [karate] strike to his left shoulder with your left hand, knocking him down. Your left knee goes down on his arm above his elbow. Your right foot goes under his forearm. Lean against his back. Take the rope, which is already looped & the loop is loosely around your wrist. Grab the fingers of his left hand thus pulling his arm back. The rope will slip down onto his wrist. Pull the loop tight. Bring the rope around the front of his neck & then around his right wrist, twice clockwise. Take your foot away & your left knee moves to rest on his kidneys.

Nozo no Ushiro Nage
Throat Attack

Before showing the correct way to push against the larynx with this technique there are four things that need to be stressed whenever you practice ju-jitsu: 1. Ju-Jitsu techniques, when properly executed at full speed are designed to cause the assailant serious injuries at the very least. 2. Students need to learn self-control in executing techniques, only using as much force/ki as necessary to effective control their attacker to prevent additional attacks. 3. Any strike, kick or blow to the larynx, regardless of how “lightly” struck can cause serious injury or death. 4. Students who resist techniques in practice are usually the ones who sustain injuries.

I do NOT allow my students to strike the larynx in any form or manner. PERIOD. The demonstration of the Nozo no Ushiro Nage in the video was choreographed to demonstrate how the technique would work in a life/death situation. The video also shows simulated strikes along side the neck so the student can practice the technique without actually striking his opponent. Make sure you step forward with the same foot on the same side of your body as your extended arm, thus maximizing your ki flow/momentum /balance and destroying the balance of the opponent without exerting any more effort.

When students are initially taught this technique they are taught to PLACE their middle finger on the jugular notch. The other fingers support the middle finger. If the defender wants the person to go backwards, the tip [not print side] of the finger gently pushes back towards the back of the opponent’s head.

Nozo No Ushiro Nage

http://www.budoshin.com/tech14.htm

If you want the person to go straight down, reach behind the jugular notch and push down gently until the person goes down. On the street this “push” can be done quite quickly and effectively, but it should never be used as a strike unless you “fear for your life”. A simple push can be very effective and produces a good “gag” reflex at the same time.

Uki Otoshi

Uki-Otoshi
Quick-Learn Sequence
The standard Uki Otoshi [in Budoshin Ju-Jitsu] is a really beautiful throw once you learn it. However, getting there can be a very frustrating process. I learned the throw after many hours of frustration and trying to believe that I could do the throw - get both of my feet off the ground straight out to the right side of my uke, snap turn to my left, and execute the throw. Much easier said than done. In the mid 1970's three of my junior high brown belt students showed me an easier way to learn the technique. We tried it with a few other students and discovered that the brown belts creativity had made a major breakthrough in helping student easily learn a "difficult" throw. Learning the throw requires three people -- tori, uke, and tori holder. Please keep in mind that this uki-otoshi has a physical limitation. It works best when used against people who are bigger [taller & heavier] than you are unless you can execute this throw exceptionally well [which some people can]. Conversely if you try to do this on a person smaller [lighter or shorter] than you are you are liable to force them backwards onto the ground with you on top of them. Thanks to Glenda Perl for being the tori, Byron Davis for being the uke, and Michael Langewisch for the photography. This uki otoshi can be found on page 72 of Jujitsu: Basic Techniques of the Gentle Art, or Technique #8 on DVD #3 of the Budoshin Ju-Jitsu Black Belt Home Study Course.

Glenda [tori] grabs hold of Byron's [uke] sleeves. [It would have been better if Glenda had grabbed around Byron's neck from his left side or over & around his right shoulder/arm[ as for a karada makikomi - body winding throw]. It would have put her back against Byron's chest when she jumped up. However, that is not of critical importance in this series of pix.

Uki Otoshi

http://www.budoshin.com/tech15.htm

George [tori holder] has reached in & grabbed tori's belt in her right front.

Glenda then kicks her right leg up [which George grabs & holds] as she comes in closer to Byron to set up the uki otoshi. George is also still holding her belt.

Glenda kicks her left leg up as George holds both legs with his right arm and her body by holding onto her obi/belt. George is holding her in this position off of the ground.

11/06/2009 10:23

Uki Otoshi

http://www.budoshin.com/tech15.htm

As Glenda pulls Byron's sleeve and turns to her left George slowly lowers her to the ground, holding onto her obi until she gets close to the ground.

Once Glenda gets the throw going, George lets go completely and Byron takes the fall. This process is repeated at least 2-3 more times as the student gains confidence. Once the tori holder [or sensei] decides that the student is jumping up & executing the throw properly he will hold onto the belt & legs for less and less time. Usually around the 3rd-5th time the tori holder can just reach for & hold the belt very lightly & as the tori comes in to execute the throw, let go completely. Do NOT tell the uke you are not going to hold onto the belt until after the throw during which you did not hold onto the belt. Let tori know ONLY after the tori has executed the throw completely on their own. Wow! Tori is now doing uki otoshi completely on his/her own.

Note: If this throw just boggles your mind, you physically cannot do it, or you can't find a bigger uke to practice on, there are some optional uki otoshi you can do. In other words, you're not just limited to this particular uki otoshi for testing purposes. Other uki otoshi listed below are also acceptable: Uke Otoshi - Floating Drop Throw - reverse for hip throw or drop throw Jujitsu: Intermediate Techniques of the Gentle Art, p. 176 Senaka Hiki Nage - Shoulder Pull Throw - reverse for hip throw Jujitsu: Intermediate Techniques of the Gentle Art, p. 178 There may be other floating throws that are not listed here which are also acceptable.
