Control Notes

THERE IS A HUGE VARIETY OF CONTROL OPTIONS AVAILABLE AND TO LIST THE AVAILABLE OPTIONS WOULD PRODUCE AND EXHAUSTIVE LIST SERVING NO REAL PURPOSE. WITH GOOD TRAINING AND PRACTICE THE ISAMI RYU STUDENT WILL FIND CONTROLS COME WITH EASE. RATHER THAN LEARN A HUGE AMOUNT OF SPECIFIC CONTROLS THE STUDENT WILL UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES OF BODY MOTION, STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS, BALANCE AND TIMING. GENERAL AREAS OF ATTACK COVERED WITH THE USE OF CONTROLS INCLUDE JOINTS, MUSCLES, PRESSURE POINTS AND SOFT TISSUE. IN ISAMI RYU WE USE THESE CONTROLS TO SET UP FINAL STRIKE POINTS. THEY ARE A MEANS TO AN END RATHER THAN AN END IN THEMSELVES.
