The Shuto-Uke action is seen in many styles and Kata, typically used as a Blocking Action for an incoming strike. But this is just one of an almost unlimited array of possible actions, especially when applying Kyusho to each of the moves. When used as an attacking method with Kyusho, we can see far more uses and possibilities.
These possibilities range from the Knockouts you are about to see,but so many other methods from neck cranks, to arm and leg traps, to even body and grappling attacks. We can see them easier when we use Kyusho as we are now just envisioning applications against the opponents weaker anatomical structures and to cause dysfunction or greater.
The old creators of the Katas as well as those Masters of old, preserved these devastating attacks secretly by calling them blocks to the newer students not in their inner circle. But we can now uncover and decipher the more probable and deadly attacks that were so venerated to pass throughout the ages and preserve for all time. It is now our task to pass along the inner meanings of these ancient forms andbring Karate, back to it's original intent.
