Tjimande basic drills


                The key is turning the torso to drive the strikes, not the arms.

                The stepping and moving should remain light, allowing the use of the turn to generate the force involved.

 

Opening Attack – RFF Right Lunge Strike (Grab)

 

  1. RFF double rising front to rear (counter-clockwise) double palm strike.
    1. Simultaneous strike to face and then arm
    2. The right foot can step across the attackers foot and this can become a variation of Aikido’s heaven and earth throw.

 

  1. LFF double rising front to rear (clockwise) double palm strike.
    1. Simultaneous strike to arm
    2. Simultaneous strike to head and arm

 

  1.  LFF double rising front to rear (clockwise) double palm strike, then RFF double rising front to rear (counter-clockwise) double palm strike.
    1. Parry arm aside, if arm goes under their arm, then 2nd strike step through into their ribs.
    2. Parry arm down, if arm remains on top, then 2nd strike step through to the head.
    3. Variation on where you step when you strike on the 2nd one.

                                                              i.      To the side 90 degree takedown

                                                            ii.      Straight in, a KO strike to the head, straight back takedown

                                                          iii.      If your initial step rolls into the right, and then steps through with the 2nd stroke, it becomes a variation of the Aikido irmi nage (entering throw)

 

General Note:  Techniques 1, 2, and 3 describe use of Chinto Kata technique.

 

  1.  RFF double rising front to rear (counter-clockwise) double palm strike. The left hand grabs their right wrist (from the inside) as you turn 90 degrees and the right elbow strikes straight back into their ribs.
    1. Then pull their arm down for an over the shoulder for a very painful arm lock.
    2. Then pull their arm down for an over the shoulder throw takedown.
    3. Or step behind 180 degrees with the left foot then turn 180 degrees counter-clockwise and pull their arm down across your shoulder for an over the shoulder throw takedown.
    4. Either a. or b. can be enhanced by dropping to your knees during the throw.

 

  1.  RFF double rising front to rear (counter-clockwise) double palm strike. The left hand grabs the attackers wrist as the right forearm lays across their forearm. The left foot steps off to the right side as you rotate counter-clockwise pulling the left arm down and just laying your right forearm across their forearm. [This makes their balance point shift to their forearm and their center does not support it. You then focus their balance to your control.] This is a rolling layered takedown, a spin down.

 

  1. RFF double rising front to rear (counter-clockwise) double palm strike. The left hand grabs the attackers wrist as the right knifehand lays across their wrist. The left foot steps off to the right side as you rotate counter-clockwise pulling the left arm down and just laying your right knifehand across their wrist. [This makes their balance point shift to their forearm and their center does not support it. You then focus their balance to your control.] This is a rolling layered takedown, a spin down.  Very similar to the last one, it creates a different throw/takedown as their center of balance shifts further from their true center, to their wrist.

 

Movements 5 and 6 can be found in Chinto Kata too.

 

  1. As they punch, LFF turning 90 degrees clockwise. Your right arm crosses their arm, grabbing their wrist, your left open hand flows into their face causing their head to turn away. You immediately lock them across your body, their arm one way their face/head/neck the other.  This is a little more fluid version of Aikido Drill 9. It is done as one movement, not in steps.

 

  1. LFB, you rotate 90 degrees to your left (counter-clockwise) as you step away, your right hand flowing over their arm and pressing down and away. Then you step LFF, 180 degrees to the right (clockwise), your left hand flowing over their arm and pressing down against their chest. This movement away and then reversal in form very fluid levered takedown.

 

  1. LFF (deep outside their strike) as your right hand parries their strike aside (and strikes into their face), then follow with a right rising crescent kick. You don’t kick them, rather your leg passes over their head/neck and when the crescent kick descends down on the other side of their neck, the inward descending pressure of you’re leg rolls them down and in.

 

Attacker LFF Left Strike

 

  1. RFF turning 90 degrees to the left as you step forward, both arm outstretched from your sides. Then your left foot steps behind 180 degrees to your rear. You rotate counter-clockwise as you continue to step behind. The arms remain outstretched, but you’re turning torso cause a windmill effect, rolling your attacker down.
