Free Aikido Video Clip – Shiho-nage

Click here for FREE Shiho-nage video clip

“Four-corner throw”. Technique where defender passes under attacker’s arm, then lifts it overhead, pivots 180+ degrees and throws. This throw originally included a pin with the arm barred in the shihonage position to complete the technique. It is commonly executed in AIKIKAI HOMBU-style aikido with the arm released after application of the shihonage pressure without a pin.

The “over-the-top” ukemi from this technique can be one of the most difficult to master. One of the “Pillars of Aikido”.
