Henshuho Pointers
 

 

22. The defender starts in right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender uses tekubi-kake-uke (wrist-hook block) and grabs the arm. Then he employs an over-under action with the left arm to trap the attacker in an elbow lock. The forward leg of the attacker is swept, throwing him to the ground.  The main point here is to lock the arm and instantly reverse to throw the attacker.

23. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender steps forward with an upper kosa-uke (cross block). With a light feeling, the defender strikes the shoulder area of the attacker with the left hand. The main point here is to have a light feeling to set up the strong strike at the end.

24. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender steps forward using a lower kosa-uke. The punch is trapped and the defender strikes the right inner shoulder of the attacker with the tip of his right shoulder. The attacker is thrown to the ground and then finished. The main point here is to relax on impact, causing the dead weight of your body to throw the person.

25. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender deflects the attack down and leaps into the air, spinning 360 degrees, and landing to execute a shuto-uchi to the attacker’s neck.  The main point here is to leap and spin quickly, foiling any further attacks.

26. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender steps in and deflects with his left hand and then quickly shoots his right hand past the neck of the attacker. The defender steps past the attacker and twists quickly to the left to throw and finish him. The main point here is to lock the attacker’s arm into his neck to facilitate a pivoting action when throwing.

27. The defender starts in left hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender uses a left haishu-uke as he slides to the right. The he steps into the attacker and uses the fingertips of the right hand to hook the attacker behind the jawbone and throw him. The main point here is to ensure that the defender finds the pressure point behind the jaw (the mandibular angle).

28. The defender starts in either left or right hangetsu-dachi. As the attacker punches, the defender spins to the left and drops to the ground. Once down, the defender’s left leg strikes the attacker and the right leg sets up for a leg lock. Both legs are used to buckle the attacker's leg and throw him to the ground. The main point is to ensure that when corkscrewing into the ground, the defender has timed it properly, so he does not lose the advantage.
