The pictures below were taken in 1983 when Roy was demonstrating Kimi no Kata (traditional self defence forms) at a club sponsor marathon to raise funds for a new mat.

Above is the first stage of defence against knife attack from the side.  The knife is deflected with the leading hand whilst a 'distraction' blow is delivered to the head.  The purpose of this blow is to dis-orientate the attacker.

The second part is to transfer the grip to the other hand and to extend the attacking arm taking the opponent off balance whilst applying an arm-lock with the same arm and with other, a strangle is applied.
