Sakketsu (Killing Lock)


This technique means to squeeze to death. The important point with this technique is to extend the arms and strike back with your hips with enough power.

Both clasp both hands in Tenryaku Uchu Gassho and bow to each other. Then, both you and the Uke stand in Ichimonji no Kamae.

The Uke grabs with Kannuki Jime from behind (this is to restrain by wrapping your arms around the person when their arms are by their sides. Lock your hands together also and squeeze).

Strike back with the hips and lift the upper arms to the side and lower your posture to break the choke (you must do this before the choke is completed). Grab the Ukes right hand with your right hand. Step to the right and strike to the Ukes face with a left Fudo-Ken. Follow this with placing your left arm behind the Ukes upper arm.

Drop the Uke with Ganseki-Otoshi (keep hold of the Ukes hand).

Press the hand down to compress the bones . Finish by stomping to Wakitsubo with the right foot.
