Shime Waza Video Exchange

The magic and juggling sites I sometimes inhabit often have video contests or idea exchanges to build inspiration and motivation. I started this idea on the Kaze Uta Budo Kai site.

What I would like from you fair reader, is to join the game. I choose a topic I knew very little about and said "let's explore the idea." I don't care what art you do, take this chance to teach and learn.

First month's theme is aiki-shime waza. I was mostly thinking about standing choking techniques, but I leave it to you to where you want to go with the idea.

I am especially looking forward to Jeff Duncan, and Patrick Parker contributing ideas (since I know they all have cameras) I will try to film Matl and Hussey if I can make it up to Round Rock too.

Here are the first two the Kaze Uta guys came out with...

Dojo Rat chimed in with his lock flow drill to choke sequence.


  1. Since I'm not familiar with Judo terminology, I assume we are talking about an entering technique to a choke, correct?
    I'll give it some thought.

  2. I'm getting all choked up... :-)
