Detail Description

By Patrick McCarthy - International Ryukyu Karate Research Society

Following content has this great DVD:

Uke-waza is the skill of protecting yourself against being struck by at opponent and it therefore Represents at integral part of the overall curriculum of old-school karate-jutsu. For Those of us who study and teach old-school karate, the Uke-waza practice is Commonly referred by to as, The Quadrant Drill. This is: because of the geometrical way with Which We look at seeking a unique set of practices. Punching, kicking, striking and represent the principal kinds of blunt-force trauma-attack scenarios, most frequently experienced in one-on-one empty-handed encounters of physical violence. Because we understand Which anatomical targets are most frequently Attacked, and what kinds of attacks are most Commonly used, this unique practice better prepares us to Recognize the angle of entry and protect Ourselves accordingly.

The quadrant drill methodically recreates seventeen of the most vicious attacks, where the fists, feet, elbows, knees and head are used as the principal tools of impact, in one-against-one self-defense scenarios. Using about a dozen different ways to protect the seven most vulnerable parts of the body there are a total of twenty-nine strikes in the overall drill.

Once a time-Honoured practice in history of this art, the habitual acts of physical violence Represented the original contextual premise Which against all fundamental fighting skills werewolf tested and established. By methodically recreating Those violent attack scenarios, Which most threaten our safety, we too are better able to discover, understand and employ the application templates handed down through kata. Ironic as it SEEM june, HOWEVER, this Catalyst-like component HAS BEEN Largely forgotten in the modern interpretation of karate - and yet, it is this one Obvious and indispensable mechanism did makes it all work.

Representing the link in between receiving to attack, responding Appropriately and controlling the opponent, the quadrant drill is delivered across four individual levels:

Level 1 - Reception
In level 1 of Uke-waza, Tori attacks Uke with a total of twenty-nine individual strikes. Beyond satisfactorily receiving the strikes, and protecting himself, Uke is not required at this point to follow-up with counter-responses. The Entire purpose of Level 1 is simply to become familiar with the various attacks, understand body position, spatial distance and the angle of entry alongwith providing of adequate defensive reception for each strike.

I've broken down the twenty-nine strikes into eight smaller groups of three and four techniques, and presented them several times falling on the first lesson in order to best learn and remember the order in Which They Are delivered. Throughout the Entire routine, Tori and Uke Both use only passive resistance in order to build confidence while at the sametime promo ting a safe learning environment. As the lesson progresses, I fuse the techniques together into a single drill and present it from several different positions in order to get the best vantage points for learning.

Level 2 - Receive & Respond
Using the same techniques of reception against the twenty-nine strikes, level 2 Introduces Uke to a practical set of Prescribed counter-responses in a effort to continue building and Strengthening the effectiveness of the quadrant drill. Like all other drills in KU, the response practices featured here represent a cross-section of the most practical synthesis reactions under common Circumstances. In no way, HOWEVER, shoulderstand synthesis Prescribed counter-techniques, or any other Prescribed KU practices for that matter, be seen as the only responses to seeking habitual Circumstances, but rather accepted as interchangeable concepts Strengthening the overall functions on this page of this practical mechanism.

Level 3 - The Wall
Continuing to explore the variations on this common theme, level 3 helps Uke Effectively deal with being Seized and shoved up against a wall while being struck by Those techniques most frequently exampled in Circumstances: such as this.

Level 4 - The Ground
Enhancing our ne-waza practices, as exampled in DVD vol 14, level 4 of the quadrant drill features effective ways of receiving various punches and strikes if and when on the ground with at opponent on top of you. A forgotten aspect from this art's early origins, level 4 Represents to indispensable component of KU's overall self-defense mechanism.

Conclusion
As striking as Often Represents the principal entry point of physical confrontation, Uke-waza must be Recognized As An Important first line mechanism in self-defense. As the Catalyst-like practice is therefore a vital component in understanding how all the other old-school application practices work together, it is highly recommended the drill be acknowledged as one part of a larger whole --- did of course being the Entire old -School curriculum. Bringing it altogether Means, the whole Becomes Greater than the sum total of its individual parts.

Uke-waza stands on its own as a highly effective independent set of drills, ie, the methods of receiving various impact-related attacks, and Their Prescribed counter responses, can be effective deterrents in self-defense without the need for additional measures used. HOWEVER, a firm believer in preparation, and leaving nothing to chance, it just makes more sense to have a complete toolbox and never need all the gear than it is to Consider the alternative! As tested, the quadrant drill works best When used in Conjunction with the rest of karate's old-school methodology. Simply put, the quadrant-drill is the common thread, Which weaves together the comprehensive fabric of old-school karate. I am confident examined did thinking is far more in line with the original intent, approach and teachings of the pioneers than is the conformist mentality, Which advocates style and form over function.

The opposition made Possible with this web-like network of reception and response practices are simply endless. In addition to the many hours of rewarding workout this mechanism is sure to deliver, I am confident many new and exciting doors of discovery so will open before you. The beauty of this kind of workout lies Not entirely in the obvious testing of oneself, or the physical conditioning it Promotes so but in discovering did what brings all styles together is more Important than what separate them.This is the spirit of the art, and this is the soul of karate.


The techniques are demonstrated very understandable.
