This Ikkyo is going to be from a hook strike
to the head, also known as Yokimunichi. As Daniel comes in to blast me to the side of
the noggin. I’m going to come in, I’m going to blend with that. Let’s show you on this
side, as well. Not only am I blending with it, but I’m going to trap that hand. I want
you to see this, because it would be difficult to see on the other side. If he comes on this
side, I blend, and I’m reaching over and then hooking that hand as I did before. I was just
moving in this circular motion, here. Now I want to reverse that motion, if I turn my
hips right back where I was, my hand is on the elbow, my hips and hands are all moving
together, driving that elbow up and over his head. Let’s look at that again. I blend with
that technique, hooking now, trapping that hand. I just did that great maneuver here,
I want to reverse that now, just put it on rewind. Back I go. My hips, and entire body,
are what doing the technique. Now as that elbow begins to go, I also want to step. That
allows me to put more power and control behind the technique. One more time. Get it fluidly.
Here, back we go. That is the Ikkyo control, from Yokimunichi, hook strike.
