Shuto Uke at the Angle Bunkai Drills for Pinan Shodan

December 21, 2018

Pinan Shodan/Heian Nidan presents strategies for using the shuto uke in straight line attacks or working the angles. In this video, we explore two basic drills for working the shuto uke at the angles. The first drill works a basic flinch response and counter, and the second drill works a defense against an attempted arm-bar. Both drills emphasize getting off at the angle, as in the kata, to reduce the risk of being hit by the enemy’s other hand.
