  1. Anyone care to tell me why my post was removed (in a respectfull fashion please). I didn’t think I was offensive in my post… just expressing my opinion. If anyone felt bad about my post, please do so… I’m not a bad person…(well I think)

  2. The whole video is useless the way is now beeing shown. All I can see is an English text and I wonder whether this is an English lesson!

  3. I’m not sure about the Ushiro part (in my practice, we believe that hands behind one’s tori means his imminent death) but I’m glad to finally see a nice Kotegaeshi correctly executed.

    About the polite thing: It is one thing to break your opponent’s wrist, it is another to break the friend’s with whom you’re sparing.
    Also twisting the wrist outward proves to be inneffective as you only break the wrist instead of killing the opponent (of course there is a little to add at the end to kill)

  4. @yourcauseofdeath 🙂 No, you don’t HAVE to be polite, but aikido tries to promote the neutralising of aggression. If you break the other guy’s wrist then this doesn’t quite fit the brief! Believe it or not, kote geishi can be an excruciatingly painful and effective control technique without having to resort to breaking the guys wrist. By compressing the wrist joint, locking the wrist, elbow and shoulder, you don’t need to do anything else – the biomechanics of the body wil do it all.

  5. WTF? So if someone is attacking you, you have to be polite and not break his wrist or elbow… SERIOUSLY?

  6. Good video! But, you should go for the spiral fracture, as taught in Kung-Fu! Just a thought…

  7. @frenchguy09 self deffece der hes not hitting so its the law for restraints and takdowns and ulminted amount of force

  8. Good ! Congratulations .

    By the way , are you that Aikido guy from that funny “Karate vs Aikido” vídeo ?

  9. Sometimes true, but remember, if you push the wrist to the outside and uke is flexible, he has a reversal to come around behind you for iriminage.

  10. why not? its a way to pull a man down or lock him while your buddy stabs him in the gut or whatever

  11. @D0wn82 jujitsu was one of the most complete martial art back in the old days but now they stripped it of so many things. For example , BJJ , judo and aikido all come from jujitsu.And it also involves striking as well.But u are right nowadays you have to learn all different martial arts

  12. However, I personally think that this techniques is great, but no one will attack you from behind like that. However, it is always good to know.

  13. Man…I don’t understand all this fucking arguing about different styles of martial arts or modern martial arts. I prefer BJJ, but like the guy said that you need to learn your stand up as well. Didn’t Bruce Lee taught you guys anything? Bruce Lee always said that you should go and train to different martial arts, and keep the techniques that work and leave the ones that don’t work…and mixed all the arts together. If I had the money and time, I would do all the martial arts .

  14. Yes. SAMBO, the Russian judo KNOCKOFF, is the BESTEST THING EVAR!!!1!!1!one!!

    Honestly, most modern SAMBO focuses on ground fighting almost exclusively. Its good to know how to fight if it goes to the ground, but you should know how to fight standing as well.

    For that matter, its highly debatable whether or not you should go to the ground in a self defense situation, if you can possibly avoid it.

  15. Without having the choice of whether or not to maime or kill your attacker, you cannot grow spiritually. Aikido gives you the option to do either. He’s demonstrating the gentlest takedown possible. You aren’t required to do the same.

  16. well in my personal opinion aikido some times is good but sometimes these techniques are not easier on a real fight in a real fight you need to be fast against your opponent this tecnnique in special not help much, but like I told is my personal opinion the best martial art is SAMBO
