Three Armlock Variations from Naihanchi Sandan

Hello, everyone!

We had gotten a few requests to show applications for Naihanchi Sandan, and since it is the third Naihanchi kata, and this week's Waza Wednesday falls on the third day of the month, we figured we would do a bit of a "3 for 3" video and show three armlock variations for the "circling arm" motion found in that kata.

As usual, these aren't definitive, and the attacks we used in the video are placeholders, as the techniques can be used in a wide variety of situations--the attack isn't as important as positioning, points of contact, and direction of movement.
