Henshuho Pointers
 

 

8. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender pivots on his right foot, to the left, and executes a right jodan-uke/uch iand twists in with a left gyaku-zuki to the side of the attacker, which can be further expanded into a throwing move. The main point of this technique is to challenge the attack and instantly redirect it, flowing into the offensive before the attacker can respond.

9. The defender can start in right or left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender can a) either slip past the punch to the right of the attacker, spin and execute an arm break and foot stomp, or b) deflect the incoming punch and execute a snapping right punch as he steps past and spins to execute the arm break and foot stomp. The main point here is to get past the punch, to allow for the spin, which is timed so you grasp the attacking arm just prior to its retracting. This spin can also be done inside the attack, allowing for a throw.

10. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender shifts in using a left haishu-uke, and then quickly steps in with his right foot, his right shoulder striking the attacker. Then the defender drops or “disappears,” causing the attacker to fall to the ground. The main point of this technique is to learn how to enter and then drop or disappear, so that the attacker falls to the ground.

11. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender twists to the left and strikes the elbow with a right uraken-uchi (back-fist strike), and then, stepping forward with the right foot, he quickly strikes the shoulder and latisimus muscle, both with the right uraken-uchi. The main point is to use tai-sabaki to evade the attack and enter for the pressure-point strikes.

12. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender uses tai-sabaki (body shifting) and steps forward and to the left of the attacker. A left sliding grab is used to apply a thumb pressure-point attack to the radial nerve by the attacker's elbow. A kick to the knee is done at the same time. The main point is to use tai-sabaki effectively, to move out of the line of attack, and grasp the arm, attacking the pressure point.

13. The defender starts in right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender twists to the right and strikes the attacker with a right uraken-uchi. The dazed attacker punches weakly with his left hand and this is deflected in a circling motion across the eyes. The defender uses a yoko-geri to finish the attacker. The main point here is to time the twisting action so that you strike the attacker as he is finishing the punch.

14. The defender starts in right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender shifts into the attack, grabbing the punch with his right hand, before spinning and sliding back into the attacker to throw him. The main point here is ensure that when spinning to do the throw, the defender is in a position to put the attacker off balance.







No. 8: The main point of this technique is to challenge the attack and instantly redirect it, flowing into the offensive before the attacker can respond. The throw is optional.
