Defense against a pursuit punch
- 7-3 outside, with simultaneous (Kūsankū) same-side nagashi uke and shooting your opposite-side arm up and forward (like a spearhand strike) up under the opponent’s chin, to force them up and back.
- Tenkan behind the opponent, and press down on the opponent’s shoulders to make them lean back farther, into a kokyūhō.
- For best results, press down with uneven alternating pressure. This exploits the opponent's attempts to regain their balance by establishing resonance.
