Defense against a pursuit punch
- Twist outside, into a cat stance, with an outside elbow break.
- 7-3 outside with a tate-shutō to the solar plexus.
- Twist into the opponent, wrapping your same-side arm around the opponent’s neck, hooking their jaw.
- Step back into a horse stance, pulling the opponent down across your knees.
- Your knee will act like an anvil or chopping block.
- Hammerfist strike to the opponent’s solar plexus.
- If the situation calls for more severity, hammerfist strike over the opponent’s heart. A well-timed blow can send it into fibrillation.
