Defending against a Backnuckle/Backfist
By rockky - Sun, 13 May 2007 04:08:46 GMT


Oftentimes in sparring the backnuckle seems to be used as a lead strike with a push drag or step drag foot maneuver.

I'm wondering what defensive techniques would apply to defend and counter effectively? I ask because it is so common yet the motion seems to be more like an outward handsword than a jab or straight punch which we often train to defend against.

A combo I'm thinking of in defense is an inward (opposite hand)/outward parry combination.

Does anyone us an inward block? The timing of the extension of the backnuckle strike from the elbow down seems to make it more challenging to block.

Any thoughts??
