Hello everyone. Welcome to karate-blog.net, clear and net Karate. Today we will see a new defense technology, “Shuto Uke” technique. I have put you in the article. It’s the Karate reference technique for the simple reason Karate in any less when we speak of karate outside, people they see all of Shuto on. Try and tell someone that you know you are doing Karate. What will he do to you? It’s Karate! It’s pretty funny. It’s really the image that people have of Karate in general. Is Shuto. Shu hand or sword. To break – “Shu” mean hands; – “To” the sword, or katana then – “Uke” receive. When there is confrontation, whoever attack is “Tori” and the receiver is “Uke”. So Shuto Uke is a defense technique with hand sword. We will start a little detail. I go back a little so you can see my legs. For now, I’ll stay in the position hachiji Dachi for you to stay focused on arm then we will shift to Kokutsu Dachi. Shuto in 90% of cases, it will be used in Kokutsu Dachi. Shuto can be used at Chudan. This is in general, it can be used at Chudan, but it can be done Jodan level also. So we will decompose. Shuto, you have a hand that comes at the opposite clavicle; hand pointed towards your face; shoulder does not rise, it remains well below. On guard of force here under the armpits. It’s just the hand that comes here. The other arm before going toward your opponent. Always the same, no one will loose shoulder. On the locks at the bottom. There was good strength here. Then uncross hands. You hand that Shuto and goes as directly as possible toward your opponent. Then at the last moment, the wrist rotates. The other arm is backwards. Same, the wrist rotates. Therefore, both wrists rotate simultaneously. Hence the arm at about the level of the plexus. Not too low. I see many who do that. It’s not good. That’s it. It’s pretty high anyway at the plexus. The arm there. This is not the elbow comes out. It is the arm which fate. Hence if you have a wall here, Shuto that affects the first. It is neither fingers nor the wrists or the elbow. This is the hand that touches saber. I just hit the hand of the sword. The elbow, it serves as a pivot. Hence, the bend serves as a pivot for the forearm. In reality, the humerus which rotates in the shoulder. Go. We will get into position Kokutsu Dachi. Excuse me, I wanted to show you the way there. It should not be that the arm is too far out there. The arm is at about one or two points here and not too off. Here you have almost a right angle. Once aligned, not the broken arm like that or the other way. In the other direction, I do not remember seeing it, but we see quite often. Often we see that because you put too much force and not enough here below. So you break your arm or else because you extend your arm too far then you end up making a Shuto like that. It’s not that. It’s like that. Hand aligned with the handful. There are a lot of strength in the hand. On the green well to be able to hit there without getting hurt. It takes the hand is fairly rigid. Go. We pass in the position Kokutsu Dachi. Yoi. It falls Kokutsu Dachi position. One positions. I remind you the position Kokutsu Dachi otherwise you will review the video. The back leg is like this. Kokutsu dachi, feet aligned. I compresses and knock. A ; two. The technique is not the arm part, but the hips. Hip, as in Gedan Barai: stay in position. It feels good in the thigh. Hip will pull back like that. Hip share in the sense there and it feels like Gedan Barai when you push here and the other backwards. In made, as you erase the body. The arms do not ask it to open. You go behind you. As made, the body will clear and the arm will remain almost the same place. So he started his technical and ends. Then it did that. When I shoot my hip back, arm there not request it, to come back. Come on, we will do two, three times. It changes position. Same principle, I shoot like that. So here you have a contraction in buttocks, pressure in the ground. So it’s not easy to do to stop like that. Besides, it is not especially logical to make technical motionless. We never see the normal context. Usually, we will move. It’s not easy to do when stopped. I do it on purpose for you to try to feel the movement of the pelvis. Once it will move, the movement of the pelvis will be lost in the move. You will have more trouble feel it. Try to feel the pelvis, it must be free. It is not necessary that your Kokutsu position blocking your pelvis. We need you to move there. We must move if you wish. I come here. Yame. the other side is taken. Now we’ll just move the pelvis backwards and let the arms open. No limits movement. There is compressed, but the arms are suitable from. You have to feel it from there. It does not share the arms. The legs move a little bit, but normally they remain as they are. Only hips that move. It is not obvious move your hips and do not move the legs, but there are people who are very hard on this to get to remain very stable. The important thing is that you stay consistent with your position. It is sure that if you do this. It’s not going at all. There you have lost everything. It is necessary that the hip moves, but the leg moves as possible. The other side. We let go and knock. Yame. Now we will make the move. It’ll still significantly better on the road. We’ll begin. Yoi. We will get in Yoi. I’ll start with the left leg. You made mirror with the right leg. Yoi. Hidari Kamae. Ichi. So, I advance Kokutsu Dachi Shuto. Go. I’m slowly. Now you follow me. I advance. Therefore there legs come against each other. I’m here. I do the compression: the arm backwards; the other stretched before. There now, remember the video of Kokutsu Dachi: leg there beforehand, another opens and I sit. At the same time, the arms open. It is the movement that will then send my arms. It is the movement where we did earlier in the Kokutsu position. We did that, little movement there. We will do so in moving. That’s why I said earlier that it is embedded in the road. It’s really that movement. From there, you go forward instead whether as earlier where there was a tendency to reduce hip because that one that advance. It’s the same thing, that one forward and the other is getting behind. She just hide behind. That did it. This movement will open up. We take back. It was there. We advance slowly. We open. Slowly, one opens. It turns on the spot. We are going forward. We are going forward. We are going forward. We are going forward. We are going forward. It turns on the spot. Yame. Yasme. So a few things, defects, we will try to see some flaws tendencies to make beginners. These are beginners who always do. Already what I said earlier, to hit too far. The arms are like that. There is no longer the same technique. It is not good that. The arm should be there. There must be consistency between the body and arm. Shuto, it’s not a technique that is far away. It is a technique that is almost the melee. That is: the art arrives, is blocked. It is all ready for opponent there. There is more to the … that it is ready and then just hang on the forearm. It’s all ready. It is not there. Another thing, an arm broken in the move. Often I see it. Often the Shuto problem is that when you finish the technique, you are almost in a guard position like when you put on hold. Apart hands that tend to be a little more tense. Otherwise, it’s almost the same position. What happens, I often see students who do that. Change the position … When I tell them. They will tend to do that to me. Finally, they are not armed. They do that. It’s better to be like that, but you still have that there is a minimum of technique. When you go, you must not think about putting your arm before. On the first, think especially to compress. Is compressed. Is released. Is compressed to hit. It is important. Look carefully. When you look at the others, watching your students or yourself, you are correct. You will see that it is not rare that in the process that make us small stuff. What I do people like that, I put them in front of a bag, I ask them to repeat me the same technique. Then there, they realize that there is nothing in the bag. There must be something in the bag. You still have the arm to make a minimum path. There surely are very strong to do that, but in general they do that, I do not follow. We will make a few trips. Ayumi Ashi we will do by advancing then retreating Iki Ashi. Yoi. Hidari Kamae. Ichi. We advance Kokutsu Dachi. Ni, san. It recedes. Ichi, ni, san, shi. We are going forward. Ichi, ni, san, shi. It recedes. Ichi, ni, san, shi. We are going forward. There is something else that beginners tend to do. I you have already said in the video Kokutsu is thinking about going ahead but not to rotate. So you think about going ahead. Your technique is there, diagonally forward, but it is not a technique where I turn. It is not necessary that you have a tendency to turn to. Often what we see is that the movement of the hips. As I have often told you, it is exaggerated. Beginners tend to disappear completely like that. Each time to do this: a blow to the right and once to the left. Always remember to go to. Ahead or behind when backing, but you have in your mind you go forward, not to the right and left. Before you hit. We take back. In front of. It recedes. We are going forward. It recedes. Yame. Yasme. a little blown. So I wrote to you in the article I would explain how a little hip rotation would sit position and improve your ground pressure. It’s simple. When you are in the position Kokutsu Dachi and that you get your hips back, you’ll pull back come and put pressure on the back foot. At the same time, you shoot and you will make a conversion. Not too much. But, do not let the pelvis like that. Compressed down like that. That’s when we made our pool of rotation. At this time, compressed downwardly. down is compressed. Therefore, the ground pressure along the post. It is at the same time. When you arrive, it does not mean that down. It does not go down. It is as if they hit the ground. It should go see what I had written following the internship supervisor James. He explains well the pressures on the ground, much like a high jumper. It happens and it hits the ground. There like, stay on the ground. At the same time as positioning, the hip is rearward and supported on the ground. I told you the other time in the video, I’ll put myself in the sense there for you to see better. In this sense, the buttock is like going to sit on a stool behind. Like I’d sit there and go down without me. This is the pool that slopes. The pelvis tilts, but it does not go down. Do not do every time: a; I go back down and I go back. A ; I go back down and I go back. Your legs are the same. It is a movement like this and like that. Is tout.Voilà. That’s all. We will rework a little bit, but I’ll put myself in the sense there for your video you see a little better and you also see in the other direction. I try to see if I was framed. Go. I put myself in position Kokutsu. So you do the same. Shuto. I advance. I move back. I advance. Ichi, ni, san. It recedes. Ichi, ni, san, shi. We are going forward. Ichi, ni, san, shi. Turn around. Ichi, ni, san. Yasme. I hope you enjoyed the video. I talk a lot. Return rework. Try to listen and see a bit of advice that I give you. See if you do not make defects often seen. If you can avoid making them. It’s good. If you do not do. It is very good. But, try to self-correct. It is for. The work you will do it alone at home, you are going to self-correct. Watch TV or display, no matter finally. You self-correct and then when you get to the club, you have progressed. This is your teacher will correct you. You will relearn things and you come back to see the videos. Now you re-continue working. It allows you to guide you. Thank you and see you next time for a video on karate-blog.net. I think the next video, I’m not sure yet, but I think we’ll make “Kihon”. a sequence of one will make “Kihon” I think we will work Kokutsu Dachi, Kokutsu of sequences, zenkutsu, etc. I think we’ll work on it, learn to do good in the hips and etc. Then at the hip rotations and displacements. See a little the difference between Kokutsu and zenkutsu Dachi. Thank you and see you next time for a video on karate-blog.net. Thank you. Goodbye.
