Naihanchi Shodan / Tekki Shodan Ground Drill

Here's a little something shot in November last year.

Hope you enjoy.

All the best.

Excellent. I really like how this relies not only on the kata movements but on general principles.

Thanks for sharing, John.

Thanks Marc. Obviously this drill is not 'stand alone'. It should tie in with the other kata moves to handle different positions.

My personal preference and observation is: @ 43 sec as the force of the punch  force one back onto the floor; I personally would hook the  right foot  over behind his  crease of his left knee as

@ 44 sec you have your leg straight out with no control/contact with his leg.

@ 50 sec; his only natural option is to push up; the danger is if he co ordinates it with a shift of the left leg over your right leg to get extra leverage (as a natural move not as an intended move).

@53 sec your right leg rightly starts to act as a brace against his left leg/left hip

@1.18 your knee acts as a brace against the back of the thigh/butt

@1.22 I would hook my right leg over his left to give me slightly more control

But in the end it is a mixture of  preference and the speed of action overcoming reaction.
