Sample text

Forms contain information on strikes, throws, chokes, locks, strangles, holds, groundwork etc. To try to fit all the various techniques into a single form would be impossible. In the last chapter we covered the six key principles that apply to all armlocks. If the founder of a form wished to record information on arm-locks, their aim would be best served by including a sample of locks that expressed those six key principles, as opposed to trying to record every single arm-lock! I believe that is exactly what the creators of the forms did.

Some understanding of the history and development of the forms is important if we are to be able to understand them in their correct context, but we should never let history get in the way of practicalities. Whilst some people may only be interested in the ‘original’ applications of the form, what really matters to me as a pragmatist is how I can make use of the traditional forms to expand, enhance and record my martial skills. If I sometimes interpret and make use of the forms in a differing way to the martial artists of the past, then so be it.

Perhaps paradoxically, I feel certain that it is this approach that the past masters would wish us to adopt. ’ Traditional forms have a great deal to offer the martial artist, but only when they are correctly understood, practised and 27 Arm-Locks for All Styles expressed. It is hoped that this chapter has helped you to better understand the nature of forms, how arm-locks are recorded within them, and how we can use traditional forms to help us record arm-locks derived from other sources. The examples in the technical sections of this book will also help to increase your understanding of the arm-locks in the forms.
