Tai Hodoki Ninjutsu Technique aka Escaping a Body Grab

Learn the Tai Hodoki technique, also known as escaping a body grab, from Sensei Oliver Martin in this Howcast ninjutsu video.


So now we're going to explore escaping a body grab, tai hodoki.

The important element here is to have a sense of what is happening to your whole body as he comes in to grab. As he comes to do a bear hug from behind, I want to use my elbows and my knees to create space and just a little gap in here, so that I can then escape. This is tai hodoki.
