By this method one applies force to the other in a shape of wave motion. The opponent does not know how to react to this unpredictable force and is easily collapsed.
If the applied force is predictable like a constant level pressure or a shock, he can somehow resist it.
But a wave motion starts at zero speed and it accelerates which totally unpredictable for him.
If a force in a wave motion is applied, a person does not know how to react it. As a result he had to synchronize himself to the motion to be collapsed.
Now I explain this Waving Method using the technique “Jodan Shuto Ate Kaeshi”as an example.
Jodan Shuto Ate Kaeshi
A and B stand face to face.
a) B steps in with left leg and attacks A by left Jodan Shuto Ate.
b) A steps in with left leg and block B’s Shuto Ate with his left lower arm by Shuto Uke.
c) When A’s arm touches B’s arm, repel B’s arm by using his lower arm as a spring.
D) B has no choice but to synchronize himself to this spring motion of A’s lower arm, and is bounced backwards.
Now I explain in detail what spring motion is.
Important Point: Waving Motion, in This Case Spring Motion
1 Timing is important
It is important in which timing you touch the opponent’s lower arm with your lower arm.
When the timing becomes late and the speed of the opponent’s lower arm becomes too high, it is impossible for you to bounce back the opponent’s arm by spring motion.
That is why the timing should be at the moment the speed of the opponent’s lower arm is still slow enough, i.e. when he raises his arm upwards.
2 Pull arm by setting elbow as fulcrum
Pull back lower arm a little with the elbow as a fulcrum after touching B’s arm.
When you make Shuto Uke, you pull back your lower arm a little to absorb the opponent’s force, i.e. Spring Motion.
By setting elbow as a fulcrum of the motion, A pulls back lower arm and bounces it.
Summary of Lesson 1
It is the important point of this chapter that how you can realize spring motion with your lower arm.
The opponent predicts that you react to his Shuto Ate by hard block. But you block it by soft wave motion which is totally out of his expectation and he gets huge confusion.
As a result he had to synchronize himself to that spring motion and is bounced backwards.
Even the opponent knows what you will do it, the result is same, because this depends on human basic characteristics.
So, this is not a miracle but just a pure psychological phenomenon.In addition, the spring motion is not just a soft block, but a [rebound motion].
