Variation 2 tuski dai sankyo

This is exercise is applied to cases in which the stance between you and your partner is close. Divert his thrust by pushing his elbow upward with your left hand and subdue him with Dai-Sankyo

Bad Example

When shifting the hold from one hand to the other make it a point to align yourself side by with your partner.
