Defense against a baseball bat.

  • Rush towards the opponent, and press on their closest arm to jam the swing.
    • If the opponent has allready swung, step back, and do not rush in until the tip of the bat points at you. The opponent will be too caught up in their follow through to stop you from jamming them.
  • Reverse punch to any open kyūsho, as an atemi.
  • Execute a takedown.
