the origins of martial arts come from oppressed people who were prohibited from using weapons and possessing tools (by political, military or religious decree), to prevent rebellion/assassination attempts against the king-emperor-high priest oppressor. Forced to use their minds and find new ways to protect themselves, the people created and mastered the art of fighting without conventional weapons by using their complete bodymind.

shoulderdropThis throw starts the same way as the shoulder throw. You first grab your opponent’s right sleeve at elbow and shoulder. All you have to do now is drop onto your left knee, stretching your right leg sideways as you do so (fig. 1). Pull down with your right hand and the thug is tossed over your shoulder (fig. 2). This and other throws that are shown on these pages should be practiced only on well-padded surfaces or on a soft lawn.
