    Default Hand Cover

    How do you employ open hand for cover or protection against opponent's accidental moves, as a cover, or positional check as in EPAK?

    There are many ways to consider hand checking applications in Self Defense. There are precautionary checking , sliding checking, Position Checking, limb checking, body checking, La-la-la-la. I think what you are doing to the opponent at the time counts, if you have worked with a partner or other student's in class and hit them they all will give you different reactions. Therefore you must have different controling factors. The learning and synchronization of both hands working together in order to maximize checking helps. But, I guess, what I do is keep the opposite hand either high along side my head or covering my solar plexus/centerline it helps in not losing it in combat. Other's are as you enter you cover over, under, and inside, outside the Line of Entry. Just my 2 cent's

    That is a good question. I do it both ways depending on what I am doing to the other person at the time.
    Why is abbreviate such a long word?

    I am not trying to be a smart aleck but I find that my free hand goes where it is needed. When we are doing hands on training at my dojo (which is very often) the free hand positions differently depending upon who I am working against, even though we are training the same technique.

    You don't sound like a smart aleck, what you say makes a lot of sense, and you have expressed it in a manner that I am sure many can relate to. Thanks,

    Yep.
    That's what the waza's are for, training us in the proper unconscious movements that work best.
    Thank you Jim.
