Tei Ken (Hoof Fist)


This technique means the appearance of a bull kicking with it"s hooves. It is important to make sure your hips are far enough out to the left.

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 from behind with Hagai-jime (under the arms and grab the collar bone). Before the choke is complete, squeeze in with your elbows to stop the choke. Then, cover the hands and place the thumb tips on the back of the Ukes hands and apply pressure.

Twist both of the Ukes hands away from your body with Ura Gyaku. Slam your hips to the left while holding the Ukes hands high (do this all at once).

Bring the Ukes hands forward to take balance. Place your right leg behind the Uke and bring the Ukes hands in toward you. Pull the Ukes hands up and begin to move forward to throw the Uke (all of this is done with a big circular motion).

Keep hold of the left hand and stamp to Wakitsubo with the right foot to finish.
