Henshuho Pointers
 

 

15. The defender starts as in 14. But as the spin is done, the defender drops to one knee and shifts back towards the opponent, causing a waterfall drop for the throw. The main point here is to commit yourself fully to the movement.

16. The defender starts in right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender slides forward to meet the punch using a right haishu-uke and grabs the arm. Then using his left hand and stepping in with the left foot, the defender throws the attacker by twisting his arm and sweeping his foot. The main point here is to ensure that the attacking arm is properly caught and twisted to effect the throw.

17. The defender starts as in 16 and blocks with a right haishu-uke. This time the defender steps in with the left foot across both legs of the attacker. The defender then uses a shoulder lock to throw the attacker onto the ground. The main point here is to step across both the attacker’s legs to stop him from regaining his balance.

18. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender steps in and drops down to one knee, punching the leg of the attacker above and below his knee. Then using a rising action, grabbing the attacker’s front leg and shoulder, the defender throws the attacker to the ground. The main point here is to wait until the last moment and slip the punch as you drop for the strikes above and below the knee.

19. The defender starts in either left or right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender slips or deflects the attack, and then spins to the right side of the attacker. He grabs the attacker's arm and applies a hiza-geri (knee kick) to the elbow. Then, continuing to spin, the defender enters into the attacker and, placing his right arm over the arm, dropping him to the ground for the finish. The main point is to ensure that the spinning action continues without stopping into the throw.

20. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender uses a left haishu-uke, steps into the attacker, drops and strikes the groin with a right heito-uchi (back sword strike). He slides his right arm between the attacker's legs, forcing the attacker across his shoulders, and does a throw. The main point here is to continue the defence once entry to the groin is made (i.e., do not stop the arm movement but continue through until the attacker is thrown).

21. The defender starts in right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender uses a right haishu-uke and grabs the arm. He then steps in and uses a left empi (elbow) to aid an arm break over his shoulder. The main point is to ensure tha the empi is applied stepping in so that it facilitates a strong arm break.
