Occurrence in shiai
Sometimes in shiai one opponent (A) sticks to another (opponent B) leaving no chance for opponent B to attack, maybe except hiki waza.
I mean most of the shiai time trying to be in tsubazeriai. When opponent B tries to increase the distance, the opponent A does not accept it and goes closer. But it is still not the situation when referees suspend the match.
Can you please advise what opponent B can do in order to increase the distance? Please describe different options. Thank you!Answer:
It is a difficult situation because one does not want to let you do anything. All you can do is to move around and/or push and pull your hands in tsubazeri-ai against your opponent’s hands to make an opening to strike.
When I was a child, I was told not to be in tsubazeri-ai a lot. That means as soon as we get close, we do taiatari and execute hiki-waza.
So if you do not want your opponent to do that again, next time you get close, you should execute taiatari.
