Instructions for Aikido's Yonkyo Technique or Fourth Teaching

This page provides you with instructions for the Aikido Yonkyo Technique or "Fourth Teaching". This is a basic Aikido wrist control technique involving a pressure point.

According to, Yonkyo "is one of the basic pinning techniques (katamewaza) of aikido. Within aikido circles, it is regarded with something of an awe, because of the distinct pain it induces".

For other techniques (i.e. wrist, elbow, counters or dislocations), visit the main Aikido Techniques section.
