Lower Block Takedown (video)

This short video was filmed at a recent dojo session. At this session we were working the lead hand hook, and various ways of negating the enemy’s possible reactions to that strike. While discussing ways to strip a flinch / cower, we looked at how we could use “lower block” (gedan barai) to create an opening and then use the same action to take the enemy to the floor. These bits of footage were filmed during that part of the class. The video is not a compete summation of all we covered, and it is not intended to be instructional in nature. I nevertheless hope you find it interesting.

All the best,

Iain
