Joint Destruction Project

One of my senior students (Samurai Girl) came up with a fascinating idea for a video.  Take all the major joints of the body and show a technique for how to destroy each of them. This idea came as the result of a class in Anatomy and Kinesiology.

In the list I have listed all of the joints I am going to address and then the technique I plan on using for the video. It is a very interesting project. When we are done I will be sure to post a link to the video.  

Neck - Uchi Kaiten Nage to Men Osae 
Shoulder - Yokomenuchi Shiho Nage
Elbow - Mae Kubi Shime Juji Nage
Wrist - Kote Gaeshi, Nikyo, Sankyo

Knee - Uchi Gari to a Hiza Osae

Fingers and Toes work the same for the most part but I can honestly say that the chance of getting toes when they should be inside shoes makes that kind of moot. Also, getting a hold of fingers in a fight is problematic as well. Hands do not sit still often in any sort of conflict. Not to say that it cannot be done just that it is not easy.

The plan is to have this project completed this week and edited together soon after.
