Kubishime

The following videos show different methods of applying Aiki to initially unbalance Uke when he attacks using Kubishime. Each method of applying Aiki is analysed.

Analysis

In the techniques shown in this video Uke restrains Tori's right wrist and applies a neck choke from the rear.


At a time of 00.45 Uke applies a neck choke from the rear. In response, Tori slightly lowers his extended right arm/wrist causing Uke to push upwards on Tori's wrist. This induces Uke to apply Aiki as he is pulled to the front by Tori turning his right arm to the front causing Uke to become unbalanced to the front. Uke pushing upwards causes the muscle torque about the ankle joint of his feet to be in the opposite direction to that required for him to resist Tori pulling him to the front.


At a time of 01.28 Uke applies a neck choke from the rear. In response, Tori lowers his body causing Uke to pull upwards using his left arm that is applying the neck choke. This action induces Uke to apply Aiki as he is pulled to the front by Tori turning his body, causing Uke to become unbalanced to the front. Uke pulling upwards causes the muscle torque about the ankle joint of his feet to be in the opposite direction to that required for him to resist Tori pulling him to the front.

Analysis

In the techniques shown in this video Uke restrains Tori by applying neck chokes from the rear and the front.


At a time of 00.56 Uke applies a neck choke from the rear. In response, Tori lowers his body by leaning on Uke causing Uke to push upwards by using his body to support Tori. This action induces Uke to apply Aiki as he is pulled to the side by Tori turning his body, causing Uke to become unbalanced to the side. Uke pushing upwards causes the muscle torque about the ankle joint of his feet to be in the opposite direction to that required for him to resist Tori pulling him to the side.


At a time of 01.18 Uke applies a neck choke from the front. In response, Tori uses his left hand to momentarily apply an upward force to Uke's right elbow causing Uke to push his elbow downwards by moving his body towards Tori so as to bend his arm at the elbow. This action induces Uke to apply Aiki as he is pulled to the side by Tori stepping to the side, causing Uke to become unbalanced to the side. As Uke moves his body towards Tori, the muscle torque about the ankle joints of his feet are in the opposite direction to that required for Uke to resist Tori pulling him to the side.
