Applications are Applications.  It doesn’t matter what particular art we’re discussing,  when you see the Elbow Chop Concept implemented (regardless of the nage’s affiliation of style), it is useful and worthy of our consideration.

Do You have a follow up or Aikido finish that utilizes a grappling application?

Please post it in the comments section below.

Also, your videos are always welcome!

Grappling Applications

A couple of things you can never assume ~ which is why grappling skills are important:

#1 That you will read the first attack properly ~ and never get sucker punched ~ or knocked down to the ground.

#2  (similar to #1)  That the fight will simply not go to the ground because you prefer to remain standing.
