George Kirby’s Top 10 Jujitsu Techniques: Sleeve Pivot Throw

With this sequence, jujitsu master, George Kirby demonstrates how to use your opponent’s strength to your advantage.

Here is what George Kirby had to say about this sequence:

“One thing Seki always taught us was never to fight our attacker, but to help him. This throw, which uses the same footwork as the basic hand throw, does an excellent job of illustrating Seki’s concept. If an attacker wants to pull you, go with him and then use his energy to execute this throw.”

Jujitsu Technique No. 7: Sleeve Pivot Throw

Japanese Translation: HIKI YOKO NAGE

1)  Assume a ready position facing your attacker.

2) Your attacker grabs your right wrist and pulls you toward him. Do not resist his pull; you’re going to use his strength.

3) Step with your right foot behind the attacker in the direction of his pull, using his pulling force to give you  momentum.

4) Grab his right sleeve or arm as you pivot to your left.

5) Pivot your left foot back, going back on your left knee, and continue pulling his sleeve.

6) When your opponent falls, do not attempt to release your right hand while this technique is being executed. Your hand can be easily turned out once the throw is completed. This throw can be done quite fast and easily if the attacker keeps hold of your right wrist. The throw can still be done if your attacker lets go as long as you’ve made it to step 4.
