Ninjutsu Submissions: Nearly equivalent to "submission" in other martial arts, Ninjutsu "Finishing Pins" are the last part of a series of maneuvers you use to bring your opponent to full submission against the floor. In this video Sensei and Paul start with a standard "omote gyaku' move that uses wrist control, motion and momentum to bring the attacker to the ground. After that an additional "finishing pin" is applied that causes the attacker to completely lose control of the situation as they are "pinned" to the ground. In Ninjutsu, there are many other maneuvers besides the omote gyaku that can initiate this kind of grappling that directs their body toward the ground, and there are many other versions of finishing pins that will end the grappling session besides the basic 10 examples shown here. These are just briefly demonstrated in this video to introduce them to new viewers and to give novice ninjutsu students a way to review the steps. You can learn much more detail about how to accomplish the finishing pins successfully in Ninja Learning Network's "Basics of Ninja Training" blackbelt video course, kyu 7. In kyu 7 of the video course Sensei Roemke explains details about performing the Omote Takeori ("outward breaking bamboo"), Ura Takeori ("inward breaking bamboo"), Omote Gyaku ("outward reversal"), Oogyaku ("great reversal") and Do Gaeshi ("turning the body".) Use extreme caution while training with these "Ninjutsu Submissions" (Finishing Pins)! The joints and bones of you and your training partner are at great risk of injury. Train very slowly and with maximum attention to control and sensitivity.
