In most grappling based martial arts this would probably be called a variation of a figure four arm lock. This is simply the mirror image of the previous sequence, for the left arm. Because most people are right handed it is probably the more likely to happen.


Pinan Shodan 4 -> Pinan Shodan 5 -> Pinan Shodan 6


  1. The the sequence begins with the opponent gripping your left hand, wrist or forearm with his right hand.
  2. Step round to the right of the opponent while dropping your weight back.
  3. Raise the gripped left arm above your head, raise your right behind his upper arm.
  4. You have caught your opponent's arm using your right arm. By pushing down with your left you are using your arm as a fulcrum and levering his arm and shoulder backwards causing him to lean over backwards.
  5. Pulling your right arm towards your ear allows you to grab his right elbow with your right hand.
  6. Pull the opponent's elbow up and over with your right hand and his wrist down towards your hip with your left.
  7. This movement dislocates the opponent's right shoulder.
