Pinan Sono San - End Sequence

HI all

Seventh and the last clip from our Pinan seminar in Poland. We have focused on Pinan Sono San/ Sandan - Doble knee/ jump sequence . In this scenario we failed with our previous techniques and now we are in close distance facing opponent and we are in  control of the neck. We use the jump(or step over, on your preference) as a double knee followed by the elbow and push away or down.
