Pinan Sandan — Keys of Morote Uke


analysis OF SOTO UKE TO MOROTE UKE


instructional videos that reveal exactly what to focus on

In the past I would just turn to the left and execute Soto Uke. It's OK, if YOU are ok... but if you REALLY want to get something out of your training...

I remember I said to Hiroki Ishikawa something like "I wonder if an 8th Dan would say that I would have to twist my hip a bit more". I noticed that my hip was twisted to ALMOST Shomen - but not completely. 

And I was right. I should have twisted a bit more.

The difficult part was that twisting was not the solution. Don't make my mistake... Save time and use the key that I mention in the video.
