Idori – Hiki Dori: exploring the weak direction

the meaning and principle of hiki dori

Hiki Dori is essentially the study of your opponent's weak direction. 

The meaning of Hiki is pull, which is shown by pulling the opponents arm. And it's the direction that counts. 

There are directions which cause the opponent to resist AND directions that don't allow the opponent to resist. 

On top of that, each direction has a certain affect. That's what you have to be mindful of if you intend to manipulate the opponent and get the upperhand. 

In these video's you'll see demonstrations and explanations of how the above works. How you can use that in your training to your advantage.
