Short Description Migi Ura Gyaku (Right Inside Wrist Reverse)

Sono Go (No. 5) Migi Ura Gyaku (Right Inside Wrist Reverse)

The Uke grabs your right lapel with his left hand. Cover this gently with your right hand. You cover the groin with the outside of the left knee by coming up onto the ball of the foot. Also use the fingers of the left hand as metsubushi to distract the Uke. You press the thumb of your left hand into the Kyusho between the thumb and the index finger.

Then press down with the right hand to release the Ukes grip. Make sure that your left elbow is covering you from a potential attack. You drop the hips as you do this. Then, roll the hand into Ura Gyaku. Also switch the covering leg to the right leg. You apply Ura Gyaku. The Uke resists this throw. So, you change to Omote Gyaku. Reach in deep with the right hand to grab the Ukes hand. Roll the Ukes hand into Omote Gyaku. Also switch the covering leg to the left leg. Step back and around with the right leg and use the elbows as an axis to throw the Uke with a cutting motion (Kesa Giri). Keep hold of the Ukes wrist after the throw and maintain Zanshin.

Within every problem lie the seeds of its solution.
