Jiyu Ippon Set 5

Please be aware that for Jiyu Ippon Set 5, the counter that is applied after the sweep or takedown is completely free and is the defender's choice. The images shown here depict a 'possible' counter.


Also, the use of the arm to assist in the takedown can only account for about 30% of the manoeuvre; the sweep must be the deciding factor in the attacker going down.


Please remember, after the takedown, the choice of counter is your own!
