Pinan Yondan 10 -> Pinan yondan 11-> Pinan yondan 12


  1. The sequence begins with the opponent standing facing you, having a grip of your right hand, wrist or forearm with his left hand.
  2. Simply rolling your arm and bringing it across your body pulls the opponent into an arm bar with your right elbow on top of his left elbow. This is probably the most common application of the koshi kamae posture.
  3. In most styles, the kata turns left and kicks with mae-geri. The Heian variant maintains a front face and kicks with yoko-geri instead. All kicks historically were low, and so are aimed at the back of the knee. Step forward and drive the knee to the floor.
  4. Place right hand on the opposite side of the opponent's head and then strike strongly with Mae mawashi empi uchi to the opponent's temple.
  5. This will at a minimum, render the opponent unconscious.
