Flying Armbar, performed as a defence against a ho Show More

ok punch (the most common attack in street fights). In this version of the flying armbar, Tori is coming in from the side. First the punch is blocked by punching on the arm, aiming for kyusho pressure points, which are widely available on the arm. Many variations are possible. In this version Tori is jumping in from the side and the right foot is first positioned on Uke's hip, which functions as a staircase to gain height and thus potential (gravitational) energy to perform the throw. Using this potential energy, Tori's body can make a circular movement. Because the angular momentum is conserved, Uke is forced to go down with Tori and land right into the armbar, the Ude-Hishigi-Juji-Gatame, or sometimes even more in kind of a Kanuki-Gatame. In a previous video (this one: https://youtu.be/3QlUuXkTnMY ) Anton Zwijsen demonstrated a similar technique, but without putting a foot on the hip first. That version is faster, but one cannot gain the same height and it is therefore less spectacular to watch. Subscribe to this channel if you like this video because there are many more martial arts videos to come, also another variaton on this flying armbar technique! This flying armbar is performed as a defence against a hook punch, however, according to the "principle of plurality" (the principle in Jiu-Jitsu which says that one technique is applicable to a wide spectrum of attacks), one can apply this technique on different kinds of attacks. It is of course required to get close enough to your opponent, so one has to get through the defence line first. Note that this technique can perfectly be performed without a Do-Gi (Kimono) or clothes to grab on to. Clearly, Tori grabs around uke's neck and arount uke's arm (that's why one can sometimes land in more of a Kanuki-Gatame). By using your arm as a "hook" around Uke's neck, one can also get more closely to Uke and thus have more control overall. The fact that one can sometimes land in a Kanuki-Gatame is dangerous for Uke's arm. The rotational velocity can make it difficult to hold back the force on Uke's elbow joint, so be careful! Another dangerous aspect is the landing of Tori onto the Tatami. An experienced partner is required, so don't try this without your martial arts instructor or professional accompaniment. This technique is seen in several martial arts disciplines: Jiu-Jitsu, Judo (however not actively trained by most judoka), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Hapkido and of course now and then we see it in an MMA or free fight match. This footage was filmed by Marc Smeets from Ethos Films. The Uke (falling partner) in this video is third Dan Jiu-Jitsuka Angelo Postma.

Self-defence technique against a backhand attack. Show More

This video shows that exactly the same technique can be used whether you are being (backhand) attacked by a knife, baseball bat or backhand fist. However, the knife attack is the most tricky one. The basic technique is shown as well as some more realistic knife sparring where one "waits" for an extended backhand attack movement to perform this self-defence technique. The more short-reaching knife cuts are very dangerous, can give you some very ugly wounds, are hard to defend and are potentially deadly. This self-defence technique was taken from the EBo-No-Kata, as practiced in the Dutch Jiu-Jitsu system. This kata was developed by Mario den Edel and Wim Boersma. This is the third technique of the fourth series of the EBo-No-Kata. This backhand attack defence beautifully shows the principles of "Ju", or "Aiki", i.e., one doesn't try to to just block the movement, but one moves along with the line of attack. In this way the energy that the attacker puts into his attack is used against him and the "energy flows harmoniously". The defender puts himself into the center of the circular movement as fast as possible and thus neutralises the attack. This video was made for amusement purposes only. Try to avoid knife fights at all cost, you will almost always leave them with damage to your body. This footage was filmed by Marc Smeets from Ethos Films. The Uke (attacker) in this video is third Dan Jiu-Jitsuka Angelo Postma. A special thanks goes to Robbert de Moor from "Sportcentrum Delta" sports center in Hulst for the use of this beautiful Dojo.

Go to http://www.AntonZwijsen.com/ Sumi-Gaeshi is a sacrifice throw (Sutemi-Waza) that's best known in Judo. This technique uses the law of "conservation of angular momentum". Tori's angular momentum is transferred onto uke, so he is forced to move along. Sumi-Gaeshi is common in Judo fights. Hide

This video shows how you can defend yourself when Show More

you've been thrown to the ground and an attacker is trying to beat you up. The technique shown here is a "scissor" technique or "Kani-Basami" as trained in Jiu-Jitsu. First you try to move away from the attacker with a movement called "Ebi" (Japanese) or "Shrimp", because this movement shows some similarity with how a shrimp moves (with some imagination from your side). This movement can save your life! When the time is right, you take the offence with the actual Kani-Basami technique and you finish with a leglock (Ude-Hishigi-Ashi-Gatame). http://www.AntonZwijsen.com/Martial-Arts Hide

throat (strangulation from the front) performed by Anton Zwijsen. Subscribe to this channel, there's much more to come! Checkout the other videos as well. O-Soto-Gari can be translated as "major outer reap". This technique is very popular in Judo. In this video the O-Soto-Gari is used as a self-defence technique. In Jiu-Jitsu this throw appears in the E-Bo-No-Kata. For self defence purposes it is usefel (as shown in this video) to execute a handpalm strike (teisho-uchi) before performing the throw. By doing this strike, your opponent will be out of balance. This is the difference between the Judo version and the Jiu-Jitsu (practically applied) version of the same technique. In Judo the technique is done without prior attack. It is interesting to look at the similarity of the o-soto-gari with Irimi-Nage (watch here: https://youtu.be/1IHSc6YFpes ) as seen in Aikido, leave your thoughts about this in the comment section! http://www.AntonZwijsen.com/Martial-Arts Hide

Teisho-Uchi, palm strike demonstration. This techn Show More

ique might just save your life one day! Subscribe and checkout the other videos! Teisho-Uchi is Japanese for "palm strike". The palm of the (open) hand is used to hit the target. This technique is simple and effective and very useful for self-defence. It is best used with this principle in mind: hit hard parts of the body with soft parts of your own body and vice versa. The palm is relatively soft, so it is well suited to hit hard parts of your opponent. Targets in this video: chin, nose and solar plexus. When striking "hard against hard", it is more likely that you hurt yourself. You might break your wrist by hitting with your fist on a skull. This won't happen with a teisho This is one of the reasons why the palm strike, teisho-uchi, or shortly "teisho" is so useful for streetfights. It is easy, very effective and safe for you hands. http://www.AntonZwijsen.com Hide

Shiho-Nage performed as a defence against a Shuto- Show More

Uchi (knife hand attack), Tanto (knife) and baseball bat forehand. Shiho-Nage can be literally translated as "Four Direction Throw", but is also sometimes called the "Sword Throw" because of the similarity with the movement that one makes when hitting with a (Japanese Samurai) sword, like in Iaido. This technique is these days best known and most widely practiced in Aikido, however the version demonstrated here is based on the Shiho-Nage described in the EBo-No-Kata of the Dutch Jiu-Jitsu system by Mario den Edel and Wim Boersma In this video, two versions of Shiho-Nage are demonstrated. One version where Uke (the partner, the attacker) is literally thrown (Nage) and another version where Uke is merely taken into a control grip (this version is safer with the knife). In the first version the grip on the attackers hand/arm is allowed to slip away slightly, to give him the opportunity to make his breakfall. In a real self-defence situation it would just dislocate or destroy the wrist, elbow and/or shoulder joints. Be careful when practicing! This footage was filmed by Marc Smeets from Ethos Films. The Uke (falling partner) in this video is third Dan Jiu-Jitsuka Angelo Postma.
