In my small club we are continuing to explore some practical applications for our kihon combinations. Last month we focused on gedan uke; this month we turn to jodan uke. In this drill, we are using the jodan uke and gedan uke (building from last month's work) as one way to deal with a high wrist grab. My students and I are thoroughly enjoying these partner drills. We take a short, quick trip down the floor to practice the combinations, and then we partner up and practice the drill.
