This is from our morning Nami ryu class. Learning how to release and displace so that there is no contesting at the point of contact. Empty your body and by pivoting on the ball of the foot closest to the opponent you can leave his hand, and what he has grasped, in place. This “disappearing” from his grasp allows you to enter uncontested so that you can throw, break, strike, or stab just as you would cut with the sword.
