Defense against a pursuit punch or knife stab

  • 7-3 outside, trapping the opponent’s hand with a downward X-block.
  • Grab the opponent’s wrist and tenkan outside, raising your hands to your forehead.
  • Turn your hips outside another 180°, completing a full turn, and takedown the opponent with a shihō-nage.
