Green Belt Techniques

1. Obscure Claws (Right flank: Left hand shoulder grab)


Theme: The theme of this technique is the use of Purposeful Compliance. As your opponent grabs and pulls you toward him, you submit to his efforts and use Borrowed Force to gain Body Momentum when stepping back - to enhance the force of your strikes. An opponent is not accustomed to being countered when your back is toward him. Your harmonized action that is directed back toward him comes as a big shock. While a first strike originates from an Obscure Zone it is also used to provide Object Obscurity for your second strike. Once you've completed the Path of Action of your initial strikes, Forward Momentum is then activated to enhance the new Path of Action of your next move. The combined use of Rotational Force with the use of Reverse Motion adds to the effectiveness of your follow-up moves. The final action includes the use of the Pin-Point Effect.
1. While Standing Naturally, and with your opponent applying a left hand grab to your right shoulder, step back with your right foot toward 6 o’clock (passing on the outside of your opponent’s left leg) into a left neutral bow (facing 12o’clock) as your right hand circles clockwise and claws (in and outward and upward manner) to your opponent’s face. Follow up immediately with a left inward claw to your opponent’s face. (Your opponent’s head snaps back.) Continue the motion of your left hand to pin your opponent’s left hand to your right shoulder.
2. Without hesitation, step forward with your right foot toward 12 o’clock into a right neutral bow as you deliver a right uppercut forearm strike against the elbow joint of your opponent’s left arm. Your left hand continues to check.
3. Step forward toward 12 o’clock with your left foot into a transitional left neutral bow and immediately pivot to your right into a right forward bow (facing 4:30) as your right hand reverses its motion, and circles toward you as a right looping back knuckle strike to your opponent’s right mastoid. Simultaneously deliver a left inward horizontal heel palm thrust (with fingers pointing away from you) to your opponent’s solar plexus. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
4. After following through with your right hand, reverse its motion and snap a right outward inverted middle-knuckle fist to your opponent’s sternum as you pivot counterclockwise into a right neutral bow.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 10:30.
5. Rotate clockwise into a right front twist stance, as you simultaneously execute a right outward heel palm claw to your opponent’s face followed by a left heel palm claw to the right side of his face.
6. Immediately pivot counterclockwise into a right neutral bow as you execute a right inward heel palm claw to the left side of his face. As you continue the momentum of your counterclockwise maneuver execute a right thrusting knife-edge kick to the inside of your opponents right knee.
7. From the contact position of your right kick, execute a right front crossover into a right front twist stance. Immediately pivot counterclockwise 180 degrees (checking low with your left hand and high with your right hand) and execute a right roundhouse kick to your opponents left kidney.
8. From the contact position of your right roundhouse kick execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 10:30.




2. Encounter with Danger (Front: Two-hand push)


Theme: This technique reminds you that not all is lost if you should be knocked to the ground. From your back you are taught that your feet can duplicate the actions of your hands. With your back as a base, you learn to thrust your feet into action. Using the ground as a launching pad, you can generate rotational momentum to increase the force of your second kick. Through proper positioning of your hands you can begin use the ground to launch your third kick. This method of generating Body Momentum will increase the depth of your action. Finally this technique illustrates how to cover out while still in the ground.
1. While Standing Naturally, and facing your opponent, he pushes you to the ground, forcing you on your back toward 6 o’clock.
2. While on your back, and as your opponent lunges toward you, deliver a left vertical knife-edge kick to your opponent’s groin (toward 12 o’clock). (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
3. Immediately flip your body to your left as you simultaneously execute a right knife-edge kick under your opponent’s jaw. (This should drive your opponent’s head back.)
4. As you roll to your left, onto your stomach, facing 6 o’clock, bring your arms under your body and push yourself back toward your opponent. As you push yourself into action, deliver a left back thrusting heel kick to your opponent’s stomach, while on your right knee. (This kick should drive your opponent’ back.)
-- While still on your right knee, left front crossover and as you gradually ascend cover out twice toward 6 o’clock.
5. While still on your right knee plant your left foot toward 12 o’clock, rise and pivot counterclockwise into a left neutral bow facing 12 o’clock.
6. Immediately execute a right thrusting ball kick to your opponents groin. While planting your right foot forward deliver a right vertical punch to your opponents sternum.
7. Execute a left front crossover into a left front twist stance while delivering a right back knuckle strike to your opponent’s right temple.
8. Pivot clockwise into a left neutral bow as you execute a left vertical punch to your opponent’s solar plexus and then chamber your left clenched fist alongside of your right shoulder as your right hand positionally checks low.
9. Immediately execute a right front crossover into a right front twist stance while executing a left back knuckle strike to your opponents left temple. Your right hand remains checking low.
10. Pivot counterclockwise into a right neutral bow as your left hand covers your opponent’s eyes and your right hand delivers a right inward looping overhead punch to the jaw of your opponent.
11. Continue to pivot counterclockwise (so that your upper body now faces 6 o’clock) and drop into a left close kneel stance. Without disrupting the flow of your Body Rotation execute a right stiff leg kick between his legs and up to his groin.
12. From the contact position of your right kick execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 6 o’clock.




3. Circling Destruction (Front: Left step through punch)


Theme: The theme of this technique begins with learning to get out of the Line of Attack while moving forward and attacking. Using a Diversified Angle of Attack, the second move introduces an odd phenomenon of gaining power through Counter Balancing your hand and leg that follow a Path of Action. Although partial Body Momentum is included, it is the Counter Balancing of your hand and leg fused with your Lateral Momentum that contributes to the greater force. Although your next action (left claw and right handsword) originates from a right forward bow, rotational momentum can be effectively generated when pivoting and dropping into a right neutral bow. The final move of this sequence interestingly ends with a simultaneous hook and thrust from the rear of your opponent. This unique combination temporarily immobilizes the lower half of your opponent's body while simultaneously forcing his upper body away from you.
1. While in a right neutral bow (or Standing Naturally), step forward toward 1 o’clock with your right foot into a right neutral bow. With this step, execute a right inward parry and left outward parry combination to the outside of your opponent’s left arm. (Your left hand finishes palm up, like a waiter carrying a tray, hooking on top of your opponent’s left arm at his elbow.) Continue the counterclockwise circling motion of your right hand converting it into a right outward back knuckle strike to your opponent’s left lower ribcage as you settle into your stance. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
2. Shift your left foot toward 4:30 into a right forward bow (facing 10:30) as you execute a left inward horizontal heel palm strike to your opponent’s face. Counter Balance this action by having your right handsword cock at your right ear. (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
3. While pivoting into a right neutral bow (facing 10:30) have your left hand claw across your opponent’s face. As you settle into your right neutral bow, deliver a right inward handsword to the left side of your opponent’s neck. (This interim use of the claw should obscure your opponent’s vision as well as turn this head toward you. Your right handsword should stun your opponent.)
4. Simultaneously execute a right front scoop kick to your opponent’s groin (from behind), a left outward thrusting heel palm strike to your opponent’s left kidney, with a right two-finger eye hook to his right eye. The heel palm strike will make contact 1/4 of a beat after the kick makes contact. (This dual action should momentarily immobilize your opponent.)
-- Plant your right foot back of you (toward 4:30) into a left neutral bow (facing 4:30). Left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
5. Have your right foot plant toward 4 o’clock, from the contact position of your right scoop kick, and immediately bounce into a right knife-edge bounce kick to the back of your opponents left knee to buckle him. Have your right foot plant toward 10:30, from the contact position of your right kick, and follow up with a right inward elbow strike to the right side of your opponent’s neck.
6. Immediately execute a left front crossover as you employ both of your heel palms to thrust shoving the back of your opponent (fingers up and heals down) toward 10:30 thus forcing him onto his stomach and face down.
7. Without hesitation execute a right heal stomp to your opponent’s lower spine, stand on his back with your right stomping foot, and follow-up with a left front crossover stomp to the back of his neck.
8. Have your left foot slip off into the left of your opponents head while having your right foot slip off and to the right of his right hip. Immediately drop into a left front close kneel stance as your right knee drives down into his spine simultaneous with a right heal palm strike to the back of his head, whereby using the ground to smash his face. Your left hand should be positionally checking where needed.
9. Using your opponent’s body to springboard you, leap up into the air, rotate your entire body clockwise, and execute a left inward looping downward roundhouse kick to your opponent’s head (similar to “Leap of Death”).
10. From the contact position of your left kick execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30 o’clock.




4. Detour from Doom (Front: Right roundhouse kick)


Theme: This technique teaches you the merits of moving Up the Circle to get you out of the Line of Attack, as well as how you can extend the range of your right vertical punch. The timing of the foot maneuver and the punch is crucial in maximizing your power. Timed with precision, Body Momentum becomes the chief contributor to the sum total of your force. This technique is also unique in that the first action triggers the second action (your right ball kick to your opponent's groin), as if it were consolidated as one. Although precise timing gives you the illusion of consolidation, the two moves are, nevertheless, separate. The shifting of your feet, and Gravitational Marriage are repeated principles that help you enhance the use of Body Momentum.
1. While in a right neutral bow, quickly shift your left foot (up the circle) toward 4:30 into a right 45 degree cat stance. Simultaneously deliver a left downward block to the inside of your opponent’s right leg as you thrust a right vertical punch to your opponent’s face. (This should injure your opponent’s right leg as well as drive his face back.)
2. From your right 45 degree cat stance, deliver a right front snapping ball kick to your opponent’s groin. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
3. Plant your right foot toward 10:30 into a right neutral bow, immediately shifting into a right forward bow. With this shift simultaneously execute a left vertical punch to your opponent’s solar plexus while checking on top of your opponent’s arms with a right horizontal forearm check. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
4. Deliver a right back knuckle strike to your opponent’s stomach as your left foot begins to shift toward 3 o’clock, into a right neutral bow (facing 9 o’clock). (Your opponent bends further forward.)
5. Have your left hand hook downward on the back of your opponent’s neck as you continue circling your right arm counterclockwise and deliver a right inward overhead hammerfist to the back of your opponent’s neck at the moment you settle into your stance. Your left hand first checks before you chamber it alongside as well as below your left hip.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
6. As you pivot (in-place) into a right forward bow, convert your right hammerfist into a hook on the back of your opponents neck. Immediately have your right hooking hand force his head down and toward you as you guide his head into a left upward heel palm thrust to and through the left side of your opponents jaw. Immediately reverse the action as you execute a left hand claw to the right side of his face (on the way back) with your right hand still bracing the back of your opponent neck.
7. Immediately have your left foot step toward 8 o’clock into a left neutral bow as your right arm slides towards you, and checks your opponents right shoulder, chambers, and then delivers a right inside downward ricocheting elbow strike to, and through, the left side of your opponent’s face or temple. Have your left hand positionally check.
8. Slide your right foot clockwise toward 5 o’clock while remaining in the left neutral bow, as you execute a right outward horizontal back knuckle strike followed by a left horizontal inward heel palm claw to his head and face respectively.
9. Immediately deliver a right snapping ball kick to your opponent’s groin. As you plant your right foot toward 11 o’clock, execute a right upward lifting stiff-arm back knuckle strike to his face. Positionally check with your left hand.
10. Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 5:30.




5. Squatting Sacrifice (Rear: Bear hug—arms free)


Theme: As the name of this technique indicates, the theme is the need for speed when squatting to initiate your sequence. Speed of action avoids the evident sacrifice of principles normally needed to elude vulnerability. The strength of your opponent prevents further lateral movement on your part. Thus the technique teaches you to seek other dimensional avenues of action. The second part of this technique introduces you to the Control Manipulation of an opponent who is on his back into the rear of you. Prior techniques, such as Spiraling Twig taught you the use of locks and twists to manipulate your opponent's wrist. Now apply that knowledge to your opponent's ankle. Once your opponent is on his back you learn how to correctly move from the inside of his body to the outside of his body. In all, this technique is a lesson in the application of Dimensional Stages of Action.
1. While Standing Naturally, with your opponent applying a rear bear hug (arms free), step to your right toward 3 o’clock with your right foot into a horse stance (facing 12 o’clock) as both of your elbows strike down to your opponent’s forearms. (This should loosen his grasp.)
2. Squat on your opponent’s right knee as you then bend over and have both of your hands grab and pull up on your opponent’s right ankle to force him on his back. The pulling and squatting could cause your opponent’s knee to break, because of the counterforce prior to the fall. As your opponent falls shift into a concave stance to prevent an Angle of Entry into your groin.
3. Immediately twist your opponent’s right ankle clockwise (pushing down on your opponent’s toes with your left heel palm and pulling up on his ankle with the fingers and palm of your right hand). Using the Residual Torque of the above action have your right leg circle clockwise (preferably raking across your opponent’s face in the process and plant your right foot toward 7:30 as you then form a right reverse close kneel stance.
4. Pivot into a right forward bow (facing 6:00) while completing the twisting of your opponent’s right ankle. (This should now force your opponent onto his stomach.)
5. While still maintaining your grab on your opponent’s right ankle with your right hand, step forward with your left foot (toward 4:30) into a left close kneel stance (paralleling the left side of your opponent’s body) and have your left hand grab your opponent’s left wrist.
6. Support your weight on your left leg as your cock your right leg high.
7. Pull and jerk up with both of your arms as your right foot stomps to the lower spine of your opponent. (This could cause a spinal break.)
-- Right front crossover, sweeping your opponent’s left arm down and cover out twice toward 4:30.
8. From the position of your right stomp, have your right foot to sweep toward 3 o’clock to clear your opponents left arm. Execute a right front crossover and a left step through toward 3 o’clock as you immediately pivot clockwise toward 9 o’clock into a right neutral bow. Follow-up of the left shovel kick to your opponent’s jaw or head.
9. Plant your left foot 9 nine o’clock (gauging your leg during your course of action - Gauging Leg) and execute a right slicing knife-edge kick to the left hinge of your opponent’s jaw to cause him to turn on his back. As the momentum of your right kick turns you counterclockwise 340 degrees plant your right foot toward 3 o’clock into a reverse right neutral bow.
10. Without disturbing the counterclockwise momentum of your flow, execute a left rear sweeping thrust kick to your opponents right temple. (Remember, your opponent is now on his back thus exposing his right temple).
11. Left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 3 o’clock.




6. Escape from Death (Right: Rear-arm choke)


Theme: This technique teaches you to escape from a rear forearm choke. It reinforces the priorities of self-preservation, which are: (1) quickness of thought and speed of action, (2) air supply, (3) protection of anatomical weak points, (4) effective offense simultaneous with your defense, (5) avoid being taken to the ground. You must be able to see that the solution to one predicament often leads you into another predicament for which you can have an answer.
1. With a choke being applied from the rear, immediately step to your right (toward 3 o’clock) with your right foot into a horse stance (facing 12 o’clock). As you drop into your stance, turn your head to the left and tuck your chin against your chest. During this action have your right hand simultaneously grab and pull down on your opponent’s right wrist, utilizing an anchored elbow). Along with these defensive safeguards, deliver a left back elbow strike to your opponent’s solar plexus. Follow up with a left back hammerfist to your opponent’s groin. (Your opponent should loosen his grip.)
2. Circle your left leg around and back of your opponent’s right leg (Cat Around) toward 7:30 as you drop into a left close kneel stance (checking your opponent’s right leg with your left knee). Simultaneous with this action deliver a right hammerfist strike to your opponent’s groin and a left hammerfist strike to your opponent’s left kidney. (Your opponent should begin to fall toward the ground.)
3. Circle your left hand over your opponent’s right shoulder and have the fingers of your left hand press under your opponent’s nose (or depending on the circumstances, have your left hand grab your opponent’s hair) to Fulcrum his head back, using his shoulder as the fulcrum point.
4. Immediately pivot into a left forward bow (facing 7:30) to take advantage of your Rotational Force. In the process thrust a right heel palm strike to your opponent’s chin. Simultaneously execute a left sliding check down your opponent’s right arm, ending at the elbow. (Make sure that the head of your opponent in either of the above cases is arched and forced back to minimize your opponent’s leverage.)
5. Shoot a right knee strike to the outside of your opponent’s right thigh. (Your opponent should fall to the ground.)
-- Replant your right foot to Point of Origin, Left front crossover, and cover out twice in the direction of 1:30.
6. From the contact position of your right knee strike, have your right foot plant toward 1:30 (gauging your distance accordingly - Gauging Leg) and execute a left knife-edge kick to the inside of your opponent’s left knee. (This should buckle him from the inside out and briefly cause his head to move toward you). Have your right hand check low and your left hand checked to the right of your face.
7. Immediately plant your left foot toward 2 o’clock into a right front twist stance while executing a left outward heel palm claw to the left side of your opponent’s face as you further force his head toward you.
8. Pivot counterclockwise into a right neutral bow as you execute a right inward hammerfist strike to the left side of your opponent’s jaw. (Properly executed, both left and right strikes will force your opponent’s body to rotate 190 degrees, thus steering your opponent to expose his back toward you.) With the assistance of your right hand hooking to the left, as well as the front, of his face, and your left hand pushing against his left shoulder, force your opponent to arch his back toward you. As you force your opponent to assume this postural position execute a right knee strike to the back of his head, or neck, while being constantly assisted by both of your hands.
9. From the contact position of your right knee strike, immediately execute a right stomp to the opponent’s right ankle or foot.
10. Execute a right for a crossover, and cover out twice toward 2 o’clock.




7. Brushing the Storm (Right flank - Right step through overhead club)


Theme: As the name of this technique implies, you are to use a slight Angle of Deviation coupled with a slight Angle of Deflection. As your parry effortlessly redirects the club attack, your right heel palm travels from its Point of Origin. The Angle of Deviation, via your step through, gives momentum to your heel palm strike. Properly timed, the use of this momentum with the Borrowed Force of your opponent’s attack adds to the power of your strike. In this technique emphasis is placed on contouring, controlling, and attacking your opponent from both the outside and inside of his attacking arm. The second step requires careful attention to be given to the timing of your Body Momentum and elbow strike. The remaining portion of the technique continues to teach you Control Manipulation and Diversified Angle of Attack which give you protection.
1. While Standing Naturally, your opponent attacks you from your right side. Have your right foot step forward toward 1:30 into a right neutral bow. Simultaneously deliver a left inward parry to the outside of your opponent's right arm while striking to your opponent's jaw with a right heel palm thrust. Your right arm should end under and inside of your opponent's right arm. (This should stop your opponent's forward Body Momentum and snap his head back.)
2. Step forward with your left foot into a left close kneel stance toward 1:30 as you strike down to your opponent's solar plexus with your right inner elbow (striking vertically), making sure that you continue to check your opponent's right arm with your left hand. (This should knock the wind out of your opponent.)
3. While in your left close kneel stance, execute a right underhand heel palm strike to your opponent's groin. Simultaneously continue to apply your left hand check to your opponent's right arm. (This should force your opponent to bend forward at the waist.)
4. Pivot clockwise and have your right foot drop back toward 1:30 into a left neutral bow (facing 7:30). While moving, have your right hand pull your opponent's right leg toward you (sliding your hand to his right knee cap and to a level below that point). Simultaneously have your left hand push forward at your opponent's right hip. (Your opponent's body is bent over at this point with his right leg in the air.)
5. While controlling your opponent's right leg with your right hand, deliver a left front snap kick to your opponent's groin (with your instep). (Your opponent should begin to buckle to the ground.)
6. Plant your left foot forward, gauging the distance (Gauging Leg), and deliver a right knife-edge kick to the back of your opponent's left knee thus buckling him to the ground.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 1:30.
7. As you plant your right foot between your opponent's legs, have your left hand grab and pull your opponent's left ankle while simultaneously executing a right inward elbow strike to his right kidney. The counter action of your left hand grab and pull along with your right elbow strike should force your opponent forward.
8. With your left hand grabbing on the back of his left ankle, have your right hand now grab the front of his left knee from the outside. Using Opposing Forces, have your left hand push down on his left ankle and your right hand pull up on his left knee. This should stretch and possibly sprain his left knee. Without hesitation, slide your right hand on the outside of his left leg and to the top of his left foot. Grab the top of his left toes with your right hand as you then push down with your left hand and pull up with your right.
9. While employing Counter Manipulation as well as Opposing Forces (with your push and pull action) have your left foot slide toward 2 o'clock and roll your opponent onto his back. (He should now be face up, legs spread apart, and head directed toward 9 o'clock.)
10. Immediately stomp your opponent's right knee with your left foot. Plant your left foot to the inside of his right leg and deliver a right slicing kick to his groin (slicing up the leg to act as a check).
11. Plant your right foot to the right of his body toward 7:30 (gauging your distance accordingly - Gauging Leg) as you continue to rotate counterclockwise 190 degrees into a left rear stomp kick to your opponent's stomach.
12. From the contact position of your left stomp have your left foot cross back of your right foot toward 6 o'clock into a right front twist stance. Immediately pivot counterclockwise 180 degrees into a right looping downward roundhouse kick to your opponent's face.
13. From the contact position of your right kick execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 5 o'clock.




8. Menacing Twirl (Rear: Left hand belt grab)


Theme: An opponent approaching from the rear is dangerous because the specific nature of the attack is unknown. If your opponent places both of his hands on you, you are able to "feel" the nature of his attack. However, in this technique only one hand grabs you at the belt. Feeling your opponent's hand gives you only a partial clue. The whereabouts of your opponent’s opposite hand is not known. Is when your counter begins that the unknown becomes semi-known. You may step to the rear, as well as inside of your opponent's grab with greater confidence because the unknown becomes known during the transition. You know that you can create and Angle of Cancellation not only from your Point of View of the attack, but also from your opponent's Point of View of the attack. To achieve this, you must act swiftly and counter using the principle of "with" rather than "and". It is your left heel palm strike being locked-out that completes your Angle of Cancellation. Controlling the Gap limits your opponent's ability to retaliate.
1. While Standing Naturally, with your back to your opponent, step back and to your left with your right foot toward 7 o’clock into a right rear twist stance. Immediately pivot clockwise into a right forward bow (facing 6 o’clock). During the transition between the rear twist and the forward bow deliver a right outside downward block to the inside of your opponent’s left (grabbing) arm at the wrist. Synchronize a left thrusting heel palm strike to the opponent’s chin “with” the completion of your right forward bow. This left heel palm strike also provides the Principal of Limited Retaliation thus preventing your opponent from delivering an effective right punch. (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
2. Instantly follow up with a left knee kick to your opponent’s groin. Counter Balance this action by having your right hand now check (high across your opponent’s chest) as your left hand now checks low on your opponent’s right arm. (your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
3. Plant your left foot as a Gauging Leg (for distance and clearance) to allow you to now freely deliver a right front diagonal knee strike toward 4:30 to your opponent’s right inner thigh. During this action shift your right arm down as a sliding check across your opponent’s solar plexus. Simultaneously have your left hand transfer to the midpoint of your opponent’s chest (Cross Check). (Your opponent’s right leg should bow outward.)
4. From the Point of Contact of you knee strike, have your right foot stomp onto the right instep of your opponent as you deliver a right inward diagonal elbow strike to the left side of his jaw. (He should fall to the ground.)
-- Right front cross over and cover out twice toward 1:30.
5. While keeping your right stomp in position, slide your left foot toward 1 o’clock (gauging your distance accordingly - Gauging Leg) and immediately execute a right thrusting knife-edge kick to the inside of your opponent’s left knee. From the contact position of your right foot, execute a right roundhouse kick to the inside of your opponent’s right knee.
6. Plant your right foot alongside of your opponent’s right foot and immediately execute a right lifting snapping forearm strike to the underside of his chin (as you guideline with your midrange weapon). Reverse your motion and deliver a right downward hammerfist strike to your opponent’s right collarbone.
7. Continue the downward flow of your right arm (between you and your opponent) and loop it counterclockwise into a right hooking punch to the left side of your opponent’s jaw while pivoting into a right reverse bow.
8. Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 1 o’clock.




9. Leap from Danger (Rear: Two-hand push)


Theme: The theme of this technique is in knowing how to fall and roll properly to avoid injury. Without this knowledge the ground can be a second adversary. With this knowledge you can quickly recover from your opponent's initial attack, create distance, assess the predicament, and act accordingly. In this case your Angle of Deviation employs leaping out of the Line of Attack prior to counterattacking. The intent of the second kick is to reinforce injury to your opponent. To ensure this desired effect you must remember to keep the flow of your Body Momentum constant during the execution of both kicks.
1. As your opponent pushes you from the rear, take a forward roll on your right shoulder toward 12 o’clock and leap up facing your opponent at 6 o’clock while shuffling back into a left neutral bow.
2. As your opponent proceeds to attack you with a right punch, leap to your left toward 4:30 with your left foot and deliver a right roundhouse kick to your opponent’s solar plexus. While leaping, your left hand should guard low as your right arm positions itself high (like an extended outward block).
3. Plant your right foot toward 7:30 (Gauging Leg). Pivot counterclockwise and deliver a left spinning back heel kick to your opponent’s right ribs (kicking toward 7:30). During the kick check with your right hand over your left shoulder, as your left hand continues to check low behind you.
-- Left front cross over and cover out twice toward 1:30.
4. From the contact position of your left kick, plant your left foot toward 7:30 (gauging your leg accordingly - Gauging Leg) and as you rotate your body counterclockwise execute a right inward crescent kick to your opponent’s face.
5. Plant your right foot in front of you (toward 7:30), but to the right of your opponent’s right foot. Immediately drag your left foot toward your right foot (gauging the appropriate distance - Gauging Leg) and execute a right reverse hooking heel kick to (and through) the back of your opponent’s right knee to buckle him.
6. While following through with the right hooking heel kick, have your right foot plant and bounce off the ground as it launches into a right roundhouse bounce kick to any available opening.
7. From the contact point of your right roundhouse kick, execute the right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 1:30




10. Circles of Protection (Front: Right step through overhead punch)


Theme: The theme of this technique is the introduction of the continuous flow of circular moves to counter your opponent. These moves act to ward off your opponent's attack, check his arm, while interchangeably been used as an offense. In this technique emphasis is placed on countering, controlling, and attacking your opponent from under, inside, and outside of his attacking arm.
1. While Standing Naturally, have your left foot step toward 11 o'clock into a left forward bow. Simultaneously deliver a right upward parry under and outside of your opponent's right punch (above the elbow). (First meet the force and then ride it.)
2. Shift to your right into a left neutral bow, as you deliver a left upward ripping claw to your opponent's face (under his right arm). Your right open hand is high to the right side of your face momentarily checking under and slightly outside of your opponent's right arm. (Your opponent's head should snap back.)
3. Continue circling your left hand counterclockwise and force your opponent's right arm down to the right side of his body. Simultaneously continue the clockwise circle of your right hand and execute a right underhand heel palm claw to your opponent's groin. At this moment your left hand should be on top of your right forearm prior to exploding into the next move. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
4. Without hesitation deliver a left outward back knuckle strike to your opponent's face as you shuffle forward (push-drag). During this action your right hand grabs and pulls your opponent's testicles. Be sure that your left leg is positioned properly as a check to protect your groin. (Your opponent's head should snap back.)
-- Left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 6 o’clock.
5. Slide your left foot toward 10 o’clock into a left close kneel stance, as your left hand slides down his right arm and grabs your opponent’s right wrist. Simultaneously execute a right inward downward raking hammerfist to his right floating ribs.
6. While still grabbing your opponent’s right wrist with your left hand, slide your left foot back and toward 6 o’clock into a right neutral bow as you straighten his arm by pulling it toward you with your left hand. Without hesitation execute a right outward heal palm strike against his right elbow to sprain or break it. Ensure accurate timing when employing Opposing Forces.
7. Immediately execute a left thrusting crossover sweep kick towards 1:30 to the left side of your opponent’s right knee. As you plant your left foot toward 2 o’clock (into a left front twist stance), have your left hand continue to pull your opponent’s right wrist down and towards you as you execute a right back knuckle strike to his right rib cage.
8. Have your right hand follow through with the right upward outward heal palm claw to and through your opponent’s right jaw hinge. This action is simultaneously executed with a right thrusting a knife-edge kick to the inside of your opponent’s left knee. Chamber your right hand to the right side of your face while maintaining your left hand grab.
9. As you plant your right foot directly in front of you (from its contact position), execute a right inward downward vertical hammerfist strike to and through the back of your opponent’s neck. (Your left hand is still maintaining its grab at this point.)
10. Immediately pivot clockwise into an in-place right front twist stance as your left hand releases its grab, circles clockwise, converts into a handsword, and execute a left downward handsword to the top of your opponent’s neck, as you settle into your right front twist stance. Have your right hand simultaneously circle counterclockwise and check the top of your opponent’s right shoulder.
11. Have your left hand now slide and check the top of your opponent’s right shoulder as your right hand continues counterclockwise and chambers below your right hip. Immediately reverse the action of your in-place twist stance and vigorously rotate counterclockwise as you execute a right stiff arm lifting punch to your opponent’s face or jaw.
12. Have the momentum of your counterclockwise rotation (Centrifugal Force) deliver a left back knuckle strike to his face, as you flow into a left spinning stiff –leg back kick under your opponent’s chin, or a left spinning heel hook coming up in a vertical fashion. Your right hand should now be positionally checking your left rib cage.
13. From the contact position of your left kick, execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 6 o’clock.




11. Circle of Doom (Front: Right straight kick)


Theme: This technique teaches you how to Fade-Out while making in-place transitions that act as defense as well as offense. It is imperative that you have the ability to employ your Natural Defenses from their Point of Origin at the moment of the attack. This technique employs a block to the best available target, with the best available weapon, from the best available angle, in the least amount of time, and still yields the desired effect. It clearly demonstrates the importance of having a complete Vocabulary of Motion that may be called upon from any Point of Reference. Once you have limited your opponent's retaliatory abilities, the concept of Economy of Motion is applied to specialized kicks that employee uncommon methods and angles of execution.
1. While in a right neutral bow (facing 12 o’clock) your right arm is hanging naturally to your side, as your left hand is checking at your solar plexus. Pivot to your left into a right reverse bow as you deliver a right inside downward (palm down) block in, and up against, your opponent’s right kicking leg, just below the back of his right calf. During this block your left hand acts as a Positional Check across your right forearm. Without hesitation circle your right arm clockwise as you execute a right extended outward block forcing your opponent’s right leg in a looping clockwise arc.
2. With your opponent’s right leg still in the air and his back to you, deliver a right rear stiff-leg kick with the back of your heel up and under your opponent's groin. If necessary drag your left foot in to assist you in gauging your distance - Gauging Leg. (Your opponent should bend forward at the waist.)
3. Plant your right foot (Gauging Leg) and deliver a left back hooking heel kick to your opponent’s head. (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
-- Without planting your kicking foot execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.
4. Immediately (from the contact position of your left kick) rotate your body clockwise and have your left foot step out toward 7 o'clock as you settle into a right reverse bow with your head looking over your right shoulder. Quickly pivot clockwise into a right neutral bow; execute a right heel palm strike and grab to the top of your opponents right shoulder; pivot (in-place) into a right front rotating twist stance; pull your opponent's right shoulder diagonally down and to his left; while executing a left lifting two-knuckle punch to his right ribs.
5. While in your right front twist stance, have your left hand grab your opponent’s right shoulder, to control his Height Zones, as your right hand chambers below your right hip. Immediately pivot (in-place) counterclockwise into a right neutral bow as you deliver a right hooking punch to and through your opponent's face so that your right fist now chambers to the left of your chest.
6. With your left hand still checking, as well as controlling your opponent, execute a left front crossover toward 1:30 into a left front twist stance while delivering a right outward back knuckle strike to any available target. Quickly have your right hand grab and check your opponent’s right shoulder as you chamber your left hand in front of your chest.
7. As you pivot (in-place) counterclockwise into a left neutral bow, continue to grab and check your opponent’s right shoulder with your right hand while executing a left heel palm thrust to his jaw hinge.
8. Left front crossover, and cover out twice towards 6:30.




12. Broken Gift (Front: Handshake)


Theme: This technique teaches the value of Contact Manipulation as well as Control Manipulation. In the technique, Gift of Destiny you learned to employ these concepts on the inside of your opponent's right arm. Broken Gift teaches you how to employ them on the outside of his right arm. It also reinforces the value of a Double Check in the controlling of your opponent's ability to retaliate. This technique also teaches you the merits of moving Up the Circle to enhance the effects of your right elbow strike.
1. With your opponent squeezing your hand, step forward with your left foot toward 12 o’clock into a left neutral bow (inside of his right leg). Simultaneous with your left step, turn your opponent’s right hand counterclockwise with your right hand, as your left hand grabs your opponent’s right wrist (with your palm up, underneath his wrist). Without hesitation execute a left upward flapping elbow strike under the joint of your opponent’s right elbow, while your right arm pulls down to cause an elbow break. (Your opponent should rise onto the tips of his toes.
2. Step back with your left foot toward 6 o’clock into a right neutral bow (facing 12 o’clock). Coordinated with this action have your left hand assist by grabbing your opponent’s right wrist as both of your hands twist your opponent’s right wrist and arm clockwise, violently jerking his arm diagonally down past your left hip. (Such action can cause a shoulder dislocation.)
3. As your left foot settles into your right neutral bow, immediately execute a right outward back knuckle strike to your opponent’s right temple. During this action retain your left grab on your opponent’s right wrist, while still pulling your opponent’s right arm toward you. (This should daze your opponent.)
4. Slide your left foot counterclockwise toward 4:30 (Up the Circle) into a right neutral bow (facing 10:30) as you deliver a right inward elbow strike to the left side of your opponent’s jaw. Your left hand still controls your opponent’s Height Zones by forcing his right arm diagonally down. (Your opponent should drop to the ground.)
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
5. Follow through with your right inward elbow strike and like a figure 8 pattern flow into an outward downward elbow strike to and through your opponents right jaw. Without disrupting your flow of action execute an upward vertical elbow strike the underside of his chin.
6. Have your left hand, which is still grabbing your opponents right wrist, twist his arm clockwise so that his right elbow now faces up, as you then execute a right inward downward hammerfist strike to the back of his right elbow to break it.
7. Immediately grab your opponents right wrist (or hand) with your right hand, slide your right foot back toward 4:30, as you rotate his right arm clockwise into a wrist lock (similar to “Spiraling Twig”). Follow-up with a left front snapping ball kick to his solar plexus.
8. Plant your left foot (from its contact position) as you gauge it accordingly. Immediately execute a right thrusting knife-edge kick to the inside of your opponents right knee.
9. From the contact position of your right kick execute a right front crossover toward 6 o’clock and pivot counterclockwise (in-place) into a left reverse heel scoop kick to your opponent’s chin.
10. From the contact position of your left kick, execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 5 o’clock.




13. Heavenly Ascent (Front: Two-hand choke, arms straight)


Theme: This technique teaches you how to form a wedge with your arms to efficiently free you from your opponent's grasp. The timing of the foot maneuver, wedge, and elbow strike is crucial in maximizing the effects of your action. Time with precision, Body Momentum (forward and rotational) becomes the chief contributor to the sum total of your force. This technique is also unique in that the first action triggers the second action (your elbow strike to your opponent's chin, as if they were consolidated as one. Although precise timing gives the illusion of consolidation in the two moves are nonetheless, separate. The shifting of your feet, and Rotational Force are repeated principles that help enhance the use of Body Momentum while going forward, or in reverse.
1. While Standing Naturally, with your opponent applying a two-hand choke from the front, step forward with your right foot toward 12 o’clock (inside your opponent’s right knee) as you clasp both of your hands together and execute two upward forearm strike to the inside of your opponent’s forearms to break the choke (which act as a wedge).
2. Pivot slightly to your left (into a right fighting horse) and execute, a right upward elbow strike to your opponent’s chin (hands still clasped). (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
3. As you commence to pivot clockwise into a right neutral bow, release your clasp and deliver a right downward back knuckle strike to your opponent’s nose and face. Instantly follow with a left heel palm claw strike to your opponent’s nose and face at the precise moment you settle into a right forward bow stance. (This should daze your opponent.)
4. As you pivot back into a right neutral bow, deliver a right half-fist uppercut strike to your opponent’s throat. While striking, simultaneously have your left hand slide down your opponent’s right arm, grabbing your opponent’s right wrist and pulling it past your left ribcage. Your pull and strike working in opposition to each other should enhance the effectiveness of your strike. (Your opponent should feel nauseous.)
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.
5. Immediately step back with your right foot toward six o’clock into a left neutral bow as both of your hands slide (tracks) down your opponent’s arms and grabs both wrists. Your left hand grabs his right wrist and your right hand his left wrist. Once securing both grabs, pull down on your opponent’s wrists as you force him to bend over and toward you.
6. Without delay, while still holding your opponent’s wrists, execute a left front ball kick to your opponent’s groin, followed by a right front ball kick to his solar plexus or sternum. (The delivery is similar to that of a chicken kick.)
7. As you plant you are right foot forward (from its last contact position) execute a right stiff arm lifting back knuckle strike to and through the underside of your opponent’s chin while still grabbing your opponent’s left hand. Reverse your motion and deliver a right downward vertical back knuckle strike to the bridge of his nose (returning on the same path). Immediately follow up your figure 8 pattern by first executing a right inside diagonal downward hammerfist strike to his left jaw as you then flow into a left rear crossover toward 1:30 while executing a right outward downward diagonal back knuckle strike to and through your opponent’s right jaw. (These moves are similar to those found in “Thrusting Lance”.)
8. While sliding your right foot toward 1:30 release your left hand, rotate it counterclockwise, and execute a left upward claw to his face. Have your right hand also circle counterclockwise during the same time period as it sweeps and checks prior to execution. As you settle into a right reverse bow, buckle the inside of his left knee while executing a right inward downward diagonal heel palm claw to and through his face. Follow through with your right hand as the same heel palm claw strikes down to your opponent’s groin.
9. Grab your opponent’s testicles with your right hand and as you execute a right front crossover pull on them (assuming he is a male). Continue to cover out twice toward 7 o’clock.




14. Capturing the Storm (Front - Right step through overhead club)


Theme: The theme of this technique entails a special method of blocking to counter your opponent. After Intercepting the Force of your opponent's attack, ride and redirect the weapon into his own shin. Precise timing is necessary to catch, guide, and control his weapon. With the opponent directed into an Angle of No Return, keep your own Body Momentum flowing throughout your sequence, disarm him, and utilize his club against him.
1. While Standing Naturally, step forward and to your left with your left foot toward 11 o'clock into a horse stance (while facing 12 o'clock). Simultaneously deliver a cross block as it wedges against the right wrist of your opponent's attacking arm (with your right wrist crossed over and on top of your left wrist). At this point your cross block should be angled off toward 1:30 so that your head and body are outside of your opponent's Line of Attack with the block occurring off of your right shoulder and above the level of your head.
2. Immediately grab your opponent's right wrist with both of your hands, with your left hand facing you and your right hand turned away from you.
3. While still holding onto your opponent's right wrist, control and guide your opponent's right arm down, in a clockwise motion, so that your opponent's club strikes against his right knee. Continue to circle your opponent's right arm clockwise (while still holding onto your opponent's right wrist) as you step toward 10:30 with your right foot. This motion is done while guiding your opponent's right arm and club up and over your left shoulder (above the level of your head.).
4. Retain the grab with your left hand as your right hand grabs the free end of your opponent's club (palm down and thumb toward you.)
5. Immediately circle your left foot counterclockwise as it plants (at a comfortable distance) toward 10:30 and forms a right neutral bow (facing 4:30). All of this is done as your right hand forces the club out of your opponent's grasp by fulcruming the action against your opponent's thumb. This occurs when the end of the club that your right hand is holding is held above the end held by the opponent. The action from here calls for the end that your opponent is holding be used as a fulcrum in forcing the club clockwise (from your Point of View) against his thumb. Without breaking the flow of your action have your right arm loop counterclockwise and have the club, that you now control, strike to the back of your opponent's right elbow.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 12 o’clock.
6. Without delay have your club circle clockwise as it moves up your opponent's right arm, strikes the back of his head, continues its clockwise arc, and strikes to and through the front of his right knee. (This entire action occurs within your clockwise circle).
7. Reverse the motion of your club so that while traveling in a counterclockwise circle it strikes the back of your opponent's right knee, follows through toward 6 o'clock, and arcs just above the level of your head. Simultaneously with the follow through action of your right hand, execute a left front crossover leg sweep toward 5 o'clock to the back of your opponent's right leg. At the precise moment that his right leg is being swept execute a clockwise circle with your right hand so that your club loops under, to, and through your opponent's nose. As your left foot plants into a left front twist stance and settles from the sweep, execute a left outward downward heel palm strike to your opponent's groin.
8. Immediately pivot clockwise (in-place) into a right neutral bow stance facing 11 o'clock as you execute a right downward diagonal elbow strike to your opponent's right kidney (striking from top to bottom and left to right).
9. Without delay shoot a right reverse bow toward 4:30 so that it travels behind and through your opponent's right leg to buckle him. During your course of action, have your club follow the direction of your right reverse bow, loop counterclockwise and, as you slide your left foot toward 9 o'clock (a very small adjustment), execute a right looping diagonal downward club strike to and through the back of his head. (Be sure to have your left hand check your opponent's right arm.)
10. With your club now below your right hip execute a right front crossover toward 1 o'clock into a right front twist stance as you simultaneously execute an inward horizontal club strike to and through the inner back portion of your opponent's left knee (traveling from outside to in).
11. Step toward 1 o'clock with the left foot and cover out toward 1 o'clock.




15. Conquering Shield (Front: Left stiff-arm lapel grab)


Theme: This technique provides a possible solution if backed up against the wall. Unable to step back to Stabilize Your Base, the wall is utilized as a "vertical" base to stabilize yourself. You learn to pin, strike, and kick at the same time. You're introduced to both a ricocheting strike and the merits of using Returning Motion, not Reverse Motion.
1. Pin your opponent's left grabbing hand to your chest with your left hand as you execute a right inward vertical forearm strike against your opponent's left elbow to break it. Simultaneous with this action, thrust a right front ball kick to the right inner knee cap of your opponent. (This should buckle your opponent's right knee, and nullify his Height Zones, Width Zones and Depth Zones.)
2. As you proceed to plant your right foot forward toward 12 o'clock into a right neutral bow, have your right arm glance up and then strike down with a right downward elbow strike to your opponent's left forearm thus forcing your opponent's head forward and down.
3. With your feet firmly planted, deliver a right upward elbow strike under your opponent's chin as your left hand positionally checks. (This should snap your opponent's head back.)
4. Follow up with a right downward heel palm claw, first to the bridge of the nose, and then to the eyes and face of your opponent.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.
5. As you follow through with the momentum of your right hand, quickly have it check your opponent’s left arm, as you deliver a left vertical punch to your opponent's sternum. Immediately deliver a right stiff arm lifting forearm strike toward 11 o’clock as it travels up and under your opponent’s chin, as your left hand checks in front of your sternum.
6. Convert your right hand into an outward horizontal heel palm claw to the right side of your opponent’s face. As this action turn his face to his left, execute a left knee strike to his groin.
7. Plant your left foot (from its contact position) toward 1:30 to buckle the inside of his left knee while delivering a left stiff arm lifting forearm strike up and under your opponent’s chin.
8. As you execute a right rear crossover toward 10:30 into a right rear twist stance, deliver a right heel of palm thrust to his face. Positionally check with your left hand.
9. Immediately shoot your left leg toward 11 o’clock into a left reverse bow to buckle your opponent’s right leg. Without delay slide your left foot toward 3 o’clock, pivot counterclockwise into a left front rotating twist stance, while executing a left outward knuckle rake across the bridge of his nose (similar to a left vertical outward block).
10. From out of your left front twist stance, execute a Back to Front Switch (left foot to the back and right foot to the front). As you step forward with your right foot, execute a right downward inward diagonal knuckle rake across your opponent’s nose or cheek bone. Time your action so that you take advantage of your Body Momentum. This should force your opponent back.
11. Follow up by delivering a left shovel kick as it strikes the knee, ribs, or face. From the contact position of your left kick, execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 5 o’clock.




16. Taming the Mace (Front: Right step through punch with a wall behind you)


Theme: This technique introduces you to trapping as a special method of blocking and countering your opponent. In this technique emphasis is placed on countering, controlling, and attacking your opponent from the inside, as well as outside of his attacking arm. You then counter manipulate your opponent into the wall, maximizing your efforts with the use of the Spiraling Staircase effect. This technique is also an introduction to use your environment as an offensive weapon. Normally do you slam your opponent into the wall, but you use it as a sandwiching effect.
1. While Standing Naturally, step toward 11 o’clock with your left foot into a left neutral bow as you execute a left inward parry on the outside of your opponent’s right punch. As you parry, deliver a right inward handsword to the inside of your opponent’s right biceps.
2. Immediately have your left hand check and grab your opponent’s right hand, at the wrist, as you deliver a right outward back knuckle strike to your opponent’s right temple. (This should drive your opponent’s head back.)
3. Have your right hand grab your opponent’s right shoulder. Anchor your elbows, pulling your opponent down to cancel his Height Zones, as you simultaneously bring him forward, hugging him up close to your body to nullify his Depth Zones (Hugging Check).
4. With both of your hands grasping your opponent, keeping your arms in close to you, and with your elbows bent, have your left foot step back toward 4:30 into a right neutral bow (facing 10:30). Immediately pivot counterclockwise. During this action bend your knees, and while gradually descending, slam your opponent against the wall.
5. As your opponent’s back slams against the wall, deliver a right knee kick to your opponent’s groin. Simultaneous with this action execute a right inward horizontal elbow strike to your opponent’s throat thus sandwiching your opponent against the wall. (Your opponent should fall to the ground.)
-- Replant your right foot back toward 12 o’clock. Left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 10:30.
6. From the contact position of your knee strike, plant your right foot back toward 12 o’clock as you execute a left heel palm thrust to your opponent’s sternum. Quickly slide your left hand up to his throat and forcefully pin him against the wall.
7. Execute and in-place Back to Front Switch. This is done by first bringing your left foot back and toward you then proceeding forward with your right foot into a right neutral bow. As your right foot steps forward, while taking advantage of body momentum via depth, execute a right heel palm strike to your opponent’s chin. Quickly have your right hand travel vertically up and passed his face. Reverse your motion as you then rip down and through his face with the right five-finger claw. Continue your downward flow as you then execute a right horizontal inward elbow strike to your opponent’s left rib cage. Have your left hand positionally checked during the elbow strike.
8. Immediately pivot into a right forward bow as you execute a right back knuckle strike to the right side of your opponent’s face simultaneously with a left a vertical punch to his solar plexus.
9. As you pivot counterclockwise (in-place) into a right neutral bow, execute a right downward hammerfist strike to your opponent’s groin while simultaneously delivering a left inward heel palm claw to and through the right side of his face.
10. With your left hand now to the left side of your opponent’s face, have your left foot slide back toward 10 o’clock as you execute a left outward heel palm claw to the left of his face, followed by a right outward back knuckle strike to and through your opponent’s right temple. Have your left hand positionally check in front of your solar plexus.
11. Grab the back of your opponent’s head with your right and left hands - with your right hand grabbing from the left side of his head and your left hand grabbing from the right side of his head. Immediately drag your left foot to your right foot, anchor your elbows as you pull his head down, and simultaneously execute a right upward knee strike to his face.
12. From the contact position of your right knee strike, execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 12 o’clock.




17. Twirling Sacrifice (Rear: Full Nelson)


Theme: This technique introduces you to grabbing, lifting, and twirling as special methods in countering your opponent. In this technique emphasis is again placed on countering and controlling your opponent by preventing him from obtaining a stabilized base. You then counterbalance your opponent by twirling him 360 degrees. This maneuver greatly increases the rotational momentum needed to maximize the effects of the slam into the wall. Like Taming the Mace, this technique is also an introduction to using your environment as an offense of weapon. Here again you not only slam your opponent into the wall, but you use it as a sandwiching effect.
1. With your opponent strongly applying a Full Nelson, stiffen your body and force your neck back against your opponent’s hands. This is done for the purpose of having your opponent concentrate his efforts to force your head forward. Take advantage of his forward force and immediately have your right foot step to your right toward 3 o’clock into a horse stance (facing 12 o’clock).
2. Immediately slide you left foot to your right foot (into a transitional left close cat stance). Without hesitation have your left foot move around and back of your opponent’s right leg toward 7:30. As you bend over have both of your arms grab the back of your opponent’s knees (borrowing the force of your opponent). (Have your left arm pass in front of your opponent’s legs before traveling to the back of your opponent’s left leg while your right arm simply reaches behind his right leg) and lift your opponent’s legs off the ground.
3. Twirl counterclockwise (360 degrees) by first having your left foot step back toward 4:30. Continue your twirl and have your right foot step toward 6 o’clock, then your left foot toward 7:30 to smash your opponent against a wall, pole, etc. If your opponent is too big and heavy just drop your opponent on his back with the possibility of having his head smash to the ground.
-- Left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 2:30.
4. Pull your opponent away from the wall and force him onto his back while holding his legs in the air with your arms. Quickly slide both of your hands to his ankles, right to right and left to left (with your palms facing each other) and grab both of his ankles. Immediately slide your left foot counterclockwise toward 12 o’clock, as you flip your opponent counterclockwise and face down. At this point you should now be facing 6 o’clock.
5. While maintaining both grabs in the air, drag your left foot toward your right foot (gauging the distance accordingly - Gauging Leg) and execute a right front snap ball kick to your opponent’s solar plexus. From the contact position of your right kick, track your right foot back down to the front of his body and execute a right thrusting knife-edge kick to his jaw or face, depending on the position of his head.
6. Plant your right foot as you cross your opponent’s right leg over his left leg so that his right ankle is placed in the back of his left knee. Immediately bend his left leg forward to pin it in position (similar to the likes of a figure “4”). Maintain constant control of his legs as you now position him onto his stomach. (At this point your opponent’s head is pointing toward 6 o’clock).
7. Have your left foot step forward toward 4 o’clock as you drop into a left close kneel stance and force your right knee on to his left leg. Exert enough pressure so that his left leg, that is folded over his right leg, will sprain or dislocate at the knee.
8. Grab your opponent's left ankle with both your hands as you stand, shuffle back toward 11 o’clock, jerk and straighten his left leg, before forcing it to the ground.
9. Immediately execute a left front crossover stomp on to his left ankle before you cover out twice toward 10:30.




18. Cross of Death (Front: Two-hand cross choke)


Theme: Because of the nature of the attack, expediency on your part is of the utmost importance. After using a ricocheting strike, you learn how you can extend the range of that natural weapon by flowing directly into your right vertical punch. The timing of your foot maneuver and the ricocheting strike is crucial in maximizing your power. Timed with precision, Body Momentum becomes the chief contributor to the sum total of your force. This technique is also unique in that the first action triggers the second action (your right punch to your opponent's face), as if they were consolidated as one. Although precise timing gives you the illusion of consolidation, the two moves accomplish to distinct effects. This technique is also your introduction into principles of Orbital Adjustment.
1. With your opponent cross choking you (with his left hand over his right) have your right foot step forward into a right neutral bow, buckling the inside of your opponent’s right knee with your right knee (facing 12 o’clock). In the process have your left hand pin your opponent’s hands to your chest (making sure that greater pressure is on his left hand). Simultaneously deliver a right glancing inward vertical forearm strike against your opponent’s left elbow to break it. Continue this action and end with a right vertical punch to your opponent’s face. (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
2. Immediately pivot into a right forward bow as you deliver a left uppercut punch to your opponent’s stomach while your right arm horizontally checks both arms of your opponent. (Your opponent should vend forward at the waist.)
3. As your left foot slides toward 4:30, commence with a left extended outward hooking parry to the outside of your opponent’s left elbow. Follow up with a right chopping punch to your opponent’s left kidney as your left foot plants and your body settles into a right neutral bow (facing 10:30).
4. Adjust the orbit of your right arm by delivering a right vertical back knuckle thrust to your opponent’s left temple. Your left hand continues to check your opponent’s arms. (Again your opponent’s head should snap back.)
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
5. Immediately execute a right roundhouse kick to and through your opponents left knee, and from the Chambered Position of your right kick deliver a right outward horizontal hooking heel kick to the inside of his left knee.
6. Quickly plant your right foot in front of you, drag your left foot toward your right foot (gauging the distance accordingly - Gauging Leg) and execute a right front snapping ball kick to the inside of your opponent’s right knee (to further spread his legs).
7. With both of your hands positionally checking plant your right foot in front of you and execute a left rear crossover stomp to your opponents left foot (with the ball of your foot) as you simultaneously deliver the right outward heel palm strike to your opponent’s right jaw. Have your left hand check off of your right rib cage.
8. Step toward 7 o’clock with your left foot as you then turn clockwise into a right neutral bow facing your opponent. From the contact position of your right hand, execute a five-finger claw down on your opponent’s face.
9. Execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.




19. Securing the Storm (Front: Right step through roundhouse club)


Theme: The name of this technique also indicates the theme. When a hurricane comes upon you, the safest place is in the eye of the hurricane. This technique teaches you to move inside your opponent's effective striking range, to stay within the confines of your Outer Rim, and Borrow the Force of his attack by utilizing the principles of With. In Calming the Storm you utilized the normal coordination level of same hand/same foot when stepping forward. Securing the Storm teaches you to use opposite hand/opposite foot when stepping forward. The Control Manipulation of your opponent momentarily prevents your opponent from taking action. The technique also utilizes the concept of "strikedowns". Many styles of the Martial Arts use "takedowns" to force their opponent to the ground. "Takedowns" utilize throwing actions to force an opponent to the ground and it is the ground that causes the initial injury. Although considered a takedown, strikedowns are much more effective. Since you’re striking your opponent to the ground, injuring occurs instantly as well as the result of impact to the ground. Strikedowns are often counterbalanced with buckles as is in this technique.
1. While Standing Naturally, step to 12 o’clock with your left foot into a left neutral bow (finishing inside of your opponent’s right leg) as you deliver a left extended outward block to the inside of your opponent’s right wrist. Simultaneously deliver a right vertical punch to your opponent’s face. (Your opponent’s head should snap back.)
2. Slide your right foot back (clockwise) toward 10:30 into a left neutral bow (facing 4:30) as you deliver a left uppercut forearm strike over and under your opponent’s right arm to break the elbow. (This should thrust your opponent’s torso forward.)
3. Shift your left foot back toward 11 o’clock, while still pinning your opponent’s right arm, and quickly circle your right foot clockwise so that it travels around, and back of, your opponent’s right leg. As you continue to circle your right foot, immediately thrust it toward 6 o’clock into a left forward bow as you simultaneously thrust a right heel palm strike to your opponent’s jaw. In the process your right leg will buckle your opponent’s right leg. The two forces (the buckle and the heel palm strike) work together in forcing your opponent to the ground. During this action your left hand grabs and slides along your opponent’s right arm, ending at the wrist the moment your opponent hits the ground.
-- Step back with your right foot toward 7:30; left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.
4. Have your right hand circle clockwise as it reaches around and grabs the far end of the club, to guarantee proper leverage when disarming it from your opponent’s grip. Maintain the grab with your left hand.
5. Holding the club with your right hand, and your opponent’s right wrist with your left, settle in-place as you jab the club down into your opponent solar plexus.
6. Now snake the club clockwise and around your opponent’s right arm so that you place the downward end on the ground just above his left shoulder, and as you shuffle up (just a little) use your right knee to check his right arm, while your right hand forces the club up against his jaw in order to break his neck or jaw. You now adjust your left foot up near the top of his head as you swing your right foot back toward 10:30, while switching hands on the club, keeping it across his throat, and now jerk back on the club with both hands to again attempting to break his jaw or neck.
7. Maintain your grip on the club, with your left hand, and as you execute a left front crossover toward 7:30 (up the side of the circle) loop the club clockwise over and down to strike the right side of his head at the temple.
8. From there, double cover out toward 9 o’clock.




20. Intercepting the Ram (Front: Tackle)


Theme: On occasion the environment and/or time may not allow you to move to desired directions. In this case you are to stop your opponent's action before it builds to its full potential. Your defenses and offensive actions merge with that of your opponent's action to stop him.
1. While Standing Naturally, hop to your left onto your left foot toward 11 o’clock and deliver a right knee kick to your opponent’s solar plexus. Simultaneously deliver a right inward overhead hammerfist to your opponent’s right kidney as your left hand checks your opponent’s right shoulder. (This should stun your opponent.)
2. With your opponent’s momentum forcing you back, drop back with your right foot toward 6 o’clock into a left neutral bow (facing 12 o’clock) as you deliver a left inward overhead elbow strike to the upper spine of your opponent. During this action your right hand acts as a sliding check along your opponent's back to his shoulders to keep his Height Zones in check. (This should begin to force your opponent to the ground.)
3. Immediately slide your left foot counterclockwise to 4:30 into a right neutral bow as you deliver a right inward downward diagonal punch which converts into a forearm elbow smash to the left side of your opponent’s jaw. Simultaneously have your left arm act as a sliding check on your opponent’s right shoulder. (This should drive your opponent’s head toward the ground.
4. After striking your opponent’s jaw, continue to pivot to your left as you deliver right back scooping heel kick to the right side of his jaw. (Your opponent should fall to the ground.)
-- Without planting your right foot, right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
5. With your right kicking leg still in the air, re-trace its path and immediately execute a right rear thrust kick to the opponent’s body.
6. From the contact position of your right rear thrust kick, execute a right front crossover toward 6:30 and without hesitation pivot counterclockwise into a left spinning back thrust kick to your opponent’s face.
7. Plant your left foot (gauging leg), toward 12 o’clock, into a left neutral bow (facing your opponent) and immediately execute a right inward diagonal slicing knife-edge kick to and through your opponent’s face (from 4:30 up to 10:30). Without losing the counterclockwise circular flow of your right kick, execute a right knife-edge thrust kick to the inside of your opponent’s right knee.
8. Without planting your right foot, execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7 o’clock.




21. Kneel of Compulsion (Right flank: Right step through punch)


Theme: The theme of this technique encourages employment of a slight Angle of Deviation coupled with a slight Angle of Deflection. As your double parries effortlessly redirect your opponent's punch from the flank, they also keep a constant check on his arm (through contouring). Although two grabs are applied to your opponent shoulders to control his Height Zones, contact with your right hand remains constant. Offenses is then the employed to destroy your opponent's stabilized base, and increase the effects of your sandwiching through the utilization of well-timed Body Momentum.
1. While Standing Naturally, facing 12 o’clock, step forward and to your right toward 1:30 with your right foot as you execute a double parry (left inward parry to the outside of your opponent’s right wrist, followed by a right outward parry to the outside of your opponent’s right elbow).
2. Step toward 1:30 with your left foot as your right hand grabs your opponent’s right shoulder (while employing a rolling check in the process). Pivot clockwise and have your left hand grab the back of your opponent’s left shoulder.
3. Without hesitation step back toward 1:30 with your right foot into a left neutral bow as both of your arms pull your opponent’s shoulders back, thus disturbing his balance.
4. Follow up with a right step through knife-edge kick to the back of your opponent’s left knee thus compelling him to kneel on his left knee.
5. As you plant your right foot forward toward 7:30 into a right neutral bow between your opponent’s legs, execute a right inward horizontal elbow strike to the right side of your opponent’s head. Simultaneously strike with a left inward horizontal heel palm to the left side of his head, thus sandwiching your opponent’s head. (Your opponent should fall to his knees.)
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 3 o’clock.
6. With your opponent on his knees have your right arm wrap around your opponent’s neck (from right to left) to form a hammerlock with your left hand is assisting, as well as checking, your opponent’s action. This is done while planting your right foot toward 7 o’clock to the left of your opponent’s left leg.
7. Immediately execute a left step through toward 7 o’clock (into a left neutral bow) as you pile drive your opponent’s head down into the floor.
8. As you continue your forward momentum, release both of your hands as you then have your left hand grab your opponent’s left wrist. Immediately execute a push-drag shuffle toward 7 o’clock as you then force your opponent’s left arm toward his neck, drop into a left close kneel, and have your right knee pile drive your opponent’s left arm to dislocate his left shoulder.
9. Have your left foot step back toward 1:30 and plant it alongside your opponent’s left hip (to act as a gauging leg) as you immediately execute a right looping outward downward crescent heel kick to the left side of your opponent’s head.
10. Plant your right foot to the left of your opponent’s head and immediately execute a left rear crossover so that your left foot travels over your opponent’s body and plants to the right of his right hip, as your left knee is then driven down onto your opponent’s spine.
11. Immediately rise from your knee drop and have your left foot step toward 8 o’clock and instantly drop into a left close kneel stance while burying your right knee into your opponent’s neck.
12. Stand upright, execute a right scraping heel kick on top of your opponent’s head (like a heel stomp that sweeps through) as you then flow into a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 9 o’clock.




22. Clipping the Storm (Front: Right thrusting club)


Theme: The theme of this technique highlights the use of strikes to disarm the attacker. Properly placed strikes to key nerve points can cause your opponent to drop his club. Emphasis is also placed on the timing of both strike and check, coordinated with the transition of your cat stance. The use of the cat stance rests in the transition which generates the first stage of Body Momentum. The next move, which is the step through, generates the second stage of Body Momentum along with your heel palm strike and check. This technique according to a still another perspective - use of Body Momentum in stages.
1. While in a left neutral bow, step forward and to your left with your left foot toward 11 o’clock into a horse stance (facing 1:30) as you deliver a left inward downward handsword to the outside of your opponent’s right forearm. Simultaneously cock your right handsword near your right ear. (Your opponent should drop his club.)
2. Shift (in-place) to a left neutral bow as you deliver a right downward handsword strike to the outside of your opponent’s right wrist, as your left hand cocks (palm in) to your right ear. (This will help force your opponent to drop his club if not already done so.)
3. Have your right foot step forward to the outside of your opponent’s right leg into a right 45 degree cat stance as you thrust a left outward handsword to your opponent’s throat (palm down). During this action your right hand slides down your opponent’s right arm, check (palm up like a waiter carrying a tray) on top of his right arm. (This should stun your opponent.)
4. Step forward and back of your opponent’s right leg with your right foot into a right neutral bow (facing 12 o’clock) as you deliver a right thrusting heel palm strike under your opponent’s chin. Your left hand should be checking your opponent’s upper right arm. (This should drive your opponent’s head back.)
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 7:30.
5. Immediately drop into a right close kneel stance as you execute a right outward diagonal back knuckle strike to the back of your opponent’s right knee simultaneous with a left heel palm thrust to your opponent’s right shoulder - to cause him to fall back, over, and on top of your right knee.
6. While your opponent is still in the process of falling, continue the action of your right hand so that it circles counterclockwise into a right downward back knuckle strike to your opponent’s groin.
7. Immediately rise and execute a left front snap kick to your opponent’s right rib cage.
8. Plant your left foot near your opponent’s right hip and execute a right thrust heel stomp to his solar plexus. As you pivot counterclockwise, and to your left, slide your right foot along your opponent’s chest, turn into a right reverse bow stance which then converts into a slide heel stomp to his throat or chin (your weight settles on your right foot at the time of the impact).
9. Slide your right foot alongside of your left foot, which is near your opponent’s right hip, as you properly gauge your distance for the next move. Immediately execute a left outward downward looping crescent kick stomp as it drops between your opponent’s legs and on to his groin.
10. Immediately deliver in a right step through stomp onto your opponent’s right ankle, slip your right foot to the ground, and execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 3 o’clock.




23. Glancing Wing (Front: Left uppercut punch)


Theme: The theme of this technique is to familiarize you with the use of the chopping punch and the conversion of the straight punch into a glancing forearm elbow strike. Both methods of execution are going to be examined and learned, to fully understand the principles of grafting.
1. While in a right neutral bow, simultaneously deliver a right inward block to the outside of your opponent’s left uppercut while delivering a left vertical punch to your opponent’s face. (This should drive your opponent’s head back.)
2. Immediately hook your left hand down and out (clockwise) outside of your opponent’s left arm as you deliver a right chopping punch to your opponent’s left ribcage. (This should bend your opponent forward at the waist.)
3. Slide your left foot counterclockwise toward 4:30 into a right neutral bow (facing 10:30) as your left hand hooks to the back of your opponent’s neck, thus forcing your opponent to bend forward. Simultaneously have your right hand check your opponent’s left arm to his body.
4. With your opponent bent over, execute a right inward diagonal punch which converts into a forearm elbow strike to the left side of your opponent’s jaw. Your left hand is in a Positional Check near your right ribcage.
-- Right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 4:30.
5. Instantly pull your right elbow back (like a right outward elbow that travels diagonally upward) so that your right wrist is bent up to allow your right back knuckle to strike and hook to the right side of your opponent’s face.
6. Drag your left foot toward your right foot (gauging leg) and execute a right upward outward diagonal crescent knee strike to your opponent’s left rib cage.
7. From the contact position of your right knee strike, have your right foot stomp the arch of your opponent’s left foot, and immediately have your right foot bounce into a right side thrust bounce kick to the inside of your opponent’s right kneecap. (This will buckle his right leg, and cause his head to drop and bend forward).
8. Plant your right foot, drag your left foot toward it (gauging the distance - Gauging Leg) and immediately pivot counterclockwise as you execute a right reverse scoop kick to your opponent’s head.
9. Instantly have your right foot bounce on the ground as it continues into a right inward downward diagonal looping roundhouse bounce kick to the back of your opponent’s left knee.
10. From the contact position of your right foot, execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 5 o’clock




24. The Back Breaker (Right flank: Right step through punch)


Theme: There are several themes related to this technique. Like Kneel of Compulsion, this technique also encourages the employment of a slight Angle of Deviation coupled with a slight Angle of Deflection. As your double parries effortlessly redirect your opponent's punch from the flank, they also keep constant check on his arm (through contouring). Although two grabs are applied to your opponent's shoulders to control his Height Zones, contact with your right hand remains constant. Another theme is the counteraction that occurs between the pulling of your opponent's shoulders and the synchronized (in sync) timing of your knee strikes. Proper timing and stepping back to commence the first stage of Body Momentum and the immediate follow-up of your knee to the opponent spine to complete the second phase of Body Momentum, should ensure the break. The third phase of Body Momentum stems from the combination of the pull. This action helps to align, accelerate, and increase the effects that gravity can render when forcing your opponent's upper spine to your supporting knee. In addition to a acquainting you with the triple stages of Body Momentum, this section introduces you to still another theme. It teaches you the merits of forcing your opponent's target to your weapon (your knee) to increase the effect of the resulting strike. You have already been taught to guide a target to an environmental object, but not, as in this case, to guide a target to your own natural weapon.
There are other themes that should be highlighted. It features twisting your opponent's head to break his neck; executing an inward downward handsword to fit the bridge of his nose; striking to your opponent's shoulders while he is still supported by your knee to feel the positive results of a Sandwiching Effect; immediate step back with your supporting leg along with two heal palm claws to your opponent's face in order to have your opponent's head, and back, hit the ground forcefully; an explosive in-place stance change from a neutral bow to a reverse close kneel to increase Body Momentum when striking your opponent's jaw hinge, with the side of your heel; and the follow-up with a back heel stomp to the nerve of your opponent's right shoulder, which is accomplished without lifting your right foot from the ground.
1. While Standing Naturally, facing 12 o’clock, step forward and to your right toward 1:30 with your right foot as your execute a double parry (left inward parry to the outside of your opponent’s right wrist, followed by a right outward parry to the outside of your opponent’s right elbow).
2. Step toward 1:30 with your left foot as your right hand grabs your opponent’s right shoulder (while employing a rolling check in the process). Pivot clockwise and have your left hand grab the back of your opponent’s left shoulder.
3. Without hesitation step back toward 1:30 with your right foot into a left neutral bow as both of your arms pull your opponent’s shoulders back and toward you, thus disturbing his balance. Immediately deliver a right knee kick to your opponent’s lower spine while simultaneously pulling with both of your hands so that your elbows rest against your ribcage.
4. Drop your right foot back toward 1:30 into a left neutral bow and increase your two-hand pull to force your opponent onto your left knee striking his upper spine with your left knee (your hands ending at the level of your hips).
5. Grab your opponent’s chin with your right hand as your left hand moves to the right side of your opponent’s head (the fingers of your left hand point to your left). Immediately twist your opponent’s head clockwise (breaking your opponent’s neck).
6. Reverse the motion of your right hand as you execute a right inward downward handsword to the bridge of your opponent’s nose. (Counter Balance this action by having your left hand apply a sliding check to your opponent’s right shoulder.)
7. While still in-place deliver two downward back knuckle strikes to the left and right humerus of the shoulder of your opponent (right to right and left to left). Your right hand travels counterclockwise striking from the outside in. Your left hand travels clockwise and also strikes from the outside in.
8. As soon as you feel the positive results of the above Sandwich step back with your left foot, toward 1:30 into a right close kneel stance as you execute two heel palm claws to your opponent’s face. Your opponent’s head and back should hit the ground forcefully.
9. Pivot into a right reverse close kneel stance (counterclockwise). Utilize this momentum in striking your opponent’s right jaw hinge with the right side of the heel of your right foot.
10. Follow up with a right back heel stomp to the nerve of your opponent’s right shoulder. (This is accomplished without lifting your right foot from the ground.)
-- From your right reverse bow execute a right front crossover, and cover out twice toward 1:30.
11. Slide your right foot slightly to the right (for proper alignment) of your left foot, and execute a left reverse inward looping hooking heel kick to and through the right side of your opponent’s face. Immediately have your left foot plant into a reverse heel stomp on top of your opponent’s left collarbone. (During all of the above you’re still facing 2:30.
12. Pivot counterclockwise into a left neutral bow stance (facing your opponent) and immediately execute a low right front shovel kick to and through your opponent’s left jaw. As your right foot follows through, drop down into a right front rotating twist stance, with your left knee dropping onto your opponent’s left rib cage. (You are facing 10 o’clock at this point).
13. Using your opponent’s body as a springboard, from the above action, bounce up into the air and pivot counterclockwise as your left foot then lands were your right foot was (in-place change—back to front). Drop, using Marriage of Gravity, as you execute a right inward looping downward roundhouse kick to your opponent’s groin. (Facing 2 o’clock)
14. Leap up again, turning clockwise in the air, and as you land on your right foot execute a left looping downward roundhouse kick to the right kneecap, or right inner thigh, of your opponent (facing 12 o’clock).
15. From the contact position of your left kick, execute a left front crossover, and cover out twice toward 12 o’clock, landing on your left foot in a one legged stance, with your left hand covering high and your right hand covering low . You are now looking toward six o’clock.
