The first part of this technique is the same as Ikkyo. Step backwards and lead him to the ground. But when coming back catch his fingers that are grasping your right wrist. Then apply the lock by bearing down on the wrist. Simultaneously, move your body backwards. This technique can be most painful to your partner and should not be applied too quickly in the early stages. Even at advanced levels, care must be taken. Your partner should tap to indicate submission as is done in the other martial arts. The moment he taps you should release the application.
