Defense against a knife thrust
- Twist inside, with a simultaneous (Kūsankū) an opposite-side grasping block to the opponent’s wrist, and a same-side hook punch to the opponent’s face.
- Perform ikkyō-omote or ikkyō-ura.
- This results in performing ikkyō with one palm down and one palm up, which is technically gokyō (literally: “fifth teaching”), but the mechanics of the technique are unchanged.
