Read e-book online Hojo Jutsu: Haya Nawa - "Das schnelle Seil" in Budo und PDF

By Walter Baier,Norbert Mahl

ISBN-10: 3738602518

ISBN-13: 9783738602517

Dieses Buch befasst sich mit der Handhabung des Seils in den fernöstlichen Kampfkünsten als Binde- und Fixierhilfsmittel.
Immer wieder stellten sich die Autoren die Frage, wie es am Ende einer möglichen Kampfsituation, in der ein Gegner überwunden wurde, weiter gehen soll. Der Satz: "Wir kontrollieren den Gegner" battle ihnen zu wenig. Denn: Wie lange kontrolliert guy einen überwundenen Gegner mit bloßer Technik ohne zusätzliche Sicherungsmaßnahmen? Bis er eingeschlafen ist und guy heimlich davonschleichen kann? Vorher ist ja nicht zu erwarten, dass der Gegner von seinen Absichten ablässt.
Walter Baier und Norbert Mahl fragten sich: "WAS KOMMT DANACH?" Die Antwort fanden sie sehr bald: "HOJO JUTSU" HOJO JUTSU ist die Kunst, Gegner und Gefangene mittels Seil zu sichern und kampfunfähig zu halten. Dieses Buch bietet alle Grundlagen, um mit dem "Haya Nawa" - dem "schnellen Seil" - umgehen zu können.
