In this video we look at some fighting throws and takedowns. The clip is a summary of some of the throws and takedowns we covered at a recent residential course. The first throw is Gichin Funakoshi’s Kubi-Wa (Neck Ring) throw which has applications in both self-protection and fighting. The following three all involve ending up on the ground and hence they are not suitable for self-protection due to the vulnerability to multiple enemies that they inherently create. They are however very useful in a one-on-one fighting context … they are fun to do too!
