Danzanryu

Kyusho no Maki


Momo Jime

Inside of leg, above knee, but very close, closer than in the Shime art. Nerve point works better if strike has direction toward feet. Many tools to strike this. Heel strike down, as in Komiiri. From headlock, fist or elbow will work. From snap kick.

Log: Prof. Tom Ball 6/22/2006: Recieved from Prof. Ball.


Yubi Tori Shime 1

Along Uke's index finger metacarpal, between thumb and hand. Tori can grip with multiple fingers, curling them around bone toward palm. This can be struck from a wrist grab, for instance, or taken on a fist, as well.

Log: Prof. Tom Ball 6/22/2006: Recieved from Prof. Ball.


Yubi Tori Shime 2

This point is at the base of the thumb, toward the back of the hand. Best attacked with a strike.

Yubi Tori Shime 3

Along the thumb metacarpal, palm side, typically taken with multiple fingers curling in.

Kesuri Tori

This point is between the base knuckles of the middle and ring fingers. Placing a pencil between these knuckles and rolling it towards arm will hit the point, pressure that mimics this is best way to hit this point.

Koshi Katori

Similar to Kesuri Tori, but between ring and pinky fingers.

Variation: : If Uke makes a fist, then there is a bulge between these two metacarpals on the back of the hand, this marks a variation of this point. This is the spot used in Katate Tori.


Tekubi Tori 1

On Uke's wrist, back side, trace out from wrist, there is a hollow. This is the spot. Mostly a striking spot.

Tekubi Tori 2

On the opposite side of wrist from Tekubi Tori 1.

Ude Ori

Ori means "folding". This is a breaking technique, thus Totemi. From a wrist grab, move Uke to Katate Tori Ni position, though all the way to the lock is probably too much. Break is done with a strike to Ulna (which is now on top), just where the wrist is narrowed. Make sure you have space and alignment for a powerful strike; even though bone is narrow, it will be difficult.

Ninode Tori

Uke grabs Tori's lapel with right hand. Point is on inside of elbow, just behind pointed protrusion.

Variation: Prof. Tom Ball 6/23/2006: Another point on elbow is under the bottom of the elbow, taken in Akushu Kote Tori.


Ude Tori Jime

This technique is the "police come-along". Uke stands. Tori stands to Uke's rigbt, facing Uke. Tori grabs around Uke's upper arm, near the elbow, fingers to inside. Fingers press into gap between Uke's bicep and tricep, very lightly, as Uke is asked to come along. Point is more effectively hit in an angle toward Uke's fingers.


Keri Age

Same nerve as in Ashinade Jime, on Uke's calf. Taken with kick, this will make Uke buckle at the knees. Kick is rising from the floor.


Sune Geri

This point is on the inside of Uke's shin, in the gap between the shin and the calf muscle. It is at the height of the largest part of Uke's calf. Best angle is a glancing blow from the front, rather than directly in. It can also be raked with Tori's toe or heel downward.


Do Mike

This is the posterior triangular gap in Uke's sternoclinomastoid muscle, as it goes into the shoulder. Hit with blade hand, typically, will cause unconciousness. This appears to be the classic "judo chop".


Muni Mike

This is the lateral triangle of the sternoclinomastoid muscle. Also struck with a downward angle, perhaps with a twisting backfist.


Kubi Jime

This is a point under Uke's chin, in center, pressed straight up with a finger.

Variation: Prof. Tom Ball : Prof. Ball reports that Prof. Tom Ryan has hit this point with his thumb while thrusting his fingers deep into Uke's mouth, after Uke had opened his mouth. This rendered Uke helpless and unable to bite down.


Ni

At the outer corner of Uke's eye is a suture point, which can be felt as a little bump inside the hollow of bone. This is a suture point and can be struck with a blade hand, judo knuckle, or palm heel.


Se

This is a point in the middle of the scapular triangle on Uke's back. It is best hit on a plane that is perpendicular to the spine but at an angle in.


Kata 1

This is the armpit. Strike to the deepest center of the armpit, with upward angle, that splits the difference between Uke's ribs and arm. This can damage the brachial artery, also the lymph node there.


Kata 2

The center of Uke's shoulder, in front. In front of where the joint is. Attacks the brachial nerve.


Kata 3

The insertion point of the deltoid on Uke's upper arm. Best hit with downward/outward angle, toward Uke's fingers.


Inazuma

Behind and beneath Uke's jugular notch, as in Shidara Fuji Shime. This can be attacked with doubled fingers, with thumb, or hooked. Effectiveness can be increased by tipping Uke's head back.
