Tips and explanations Back


Basic technical explanations and tips are listed below.

Direction of force in Nuki waza Back


By understanding the right direction of the force you have to apply in Nuki waza, you can easily escape
from a grip.

Those animals developed thumb can


grab things tightly. That means if you
can make a force of the thumb
grabbing your wrist weaken, you can
easily escape from the grip.
Thumb can resist against the forces
shown by red arrows in the left figure,
but can not resist forces shown by
green arrows.
Shorinji Kempo utilize this fact, using
(1) direction are Kote nuki and
others, using (2) direction are Kiri
nuki and others.
Another way of escaping is applying force in the direction of locking techniques
and make your opponent release his grip because of the pain the locking
techniques causes.

Meuchi Back
Once your opponent is prepared for your next move, it may have become difficult to execute a technique,
that is, your waza on him. Especially if your opponent is stronger than you, some special techniques are
called for. You should try to make it difficult for your opponent to concentrate on the essential elements
that determine the effectiveness of your techniques.

This category of techniques is called Meuchi and consists of flapping at eyes with fingertips. Delivering
Meuchi, you can create a window of opportunity to getting rid of his concentration. You do not have to
actually flap at your opponent's eye balls, just waving your finger tips in front of the eyes is sometimes
enough.

Use Meuchi whenever you try to execute Juho.

Kagite Back
Kagite is a typical guard style used for preventing your
opponent from controlling you once your opponent has
seized your wrist.
Once one of your hands is in your opponent's grip, do not try to
free your hand by pulling it directly back towards you.Your
opponent, with greater strength, will hold fast to your hand.
Rather, treating your hand-arm-body system as a lever, try to

1 of 3 23/06/2009 11:03
Elemantal technics of Shorinji Kempo http://kenseikai.world.coocan.jp/gihou/kihon/engtech.htm#yogo

Do not try to pull the hand position the fulcrum of that system close to your body. The
grabbed. leverage gained will magnify your strength. This is a simple
physical principle.
Open your hand as illustrated in the left figure. By opening your
Point in the right description hand, your wrist becomes thicker and this makes your opponent

opponent a chance to grip your finger at the same time.
Therefore do not be in Kagite style for long. Move to the next
technique as soon as possible.
Remember, to effect this guard style, put your body and not
your opponent's grip, near the fulcrum.

Sankaku shuhou or Triangle guard position Back


Sankaku shuhou is a guard technique against your opponent's
offense, trying to twist your arm in a direction shown in the left
Fig.
Do not pull your wrist toward you, but rather put yourself near to your
wrist seized and put it as close as your side body. Your arm will make a
triangle shown in the left figure below.
As you can see, your opponent's grip has already weakened just after

Nisoku tenkai Back


As illustrated at left, Nisoku tenkai,
which means two steps full turn, is a
way to turn 180 degree in two steps.
The quickness and economy of
movement this allows is important in
throwing techniques.

Tips on Boshikyu Back

opponent's arm form a
straight line.
One man training:(Figs. below)

(1)Put the palm of your left hand against the back of your right hand so that both palm faces you.

opponent's hand.

Elemantal technics of Shorinji Kempo http://kenseikai.world.coocan.jp/gihou/kihon/engtech.htm#yogo

(2)Hook the middle and ring fingers of your left hand around the fleshy base of your right thumb.

(3)Using the leverage afforded by your palm, press the Boshikyu of your left hand against the back
of your right hand to fold your right wrist. You shall be able to easily fold your right wrist as far as it
will go and, thereby, point the fingers of you right hand at your chest. This will make your arms form
a straight line

(4)Twist your left hand to check a direction of the force you should apply to give the maximun pain.
You can feel how the leverage gives your left hand control over your right hand.

In step 3, it is important to press your Boshikyu against the back of


your opponent's hand and not twist your opponent's wrist with your
thumb. Beginners sometimes try to twist their opponent's wrist, however this
allows your opponent to escape from your grip. It does not work to your
advantage at all, especially when your opponent is stronger than you.

Yubidori Back

This technique is used to lock an opponent's wrist and thumb.


Use your Boshikyu firmly attached to the back of his hand
and twist his thum in the direction shown in the right Fig.

your opponent's wrist
clockwise and pull it low.
