Heian Yondan Entry Into Takedown and Choke

In this impromptu video, the opening movement of Heian Yondan can be used as a simultaneous block and strike. The juji uke ('X' block) is then used to secure a grip for a takedown and choke. This is a fighting application and not suitable for self defense. Intentionally going to the ground in a self defense situation is never advisable. This application is based on the work of Simon O'Brien.

Really enjoyed this one, thanks for putting it up.  The gator roll is a fun way to connect the kata bunkai sequence with your grappling/sparring skill set.  Very smooth!
