    Default November 2019 TOM - Raking Mace

    Raking Mace:
    (Front-Two-Hand Lapel Grab; Pulling In)

    1. An attacker at 12 o'clock grabs your lapels with both hands and pulls in.

    2. As your attacker pulls you in, step your right foot to 12 o'clock into a right neutral bow facing 12 o'clock as you pin both of your attacker's hands to your chest and simultaneously execute a right uppercut to your attacker's solar plexus.

    3. Circle your right hand counter clockwise while your left hand is still pinning as you execute a right diagonally inward fist rake down and across your attacker's nose.

    4. Continue the motion so you strike onto your attacker's forearms.

    5. Instantly reverse the motion with a right outward hand sword to your attacker's throat.

    6. Cut the circle in half as you execute a right inward elbow strike simultaneous with a left palm strike to your attacker's jaw.

    7. Cross out towards 7:30.

    Those strikes -- and his own neurological reflexes to being struck across the nose -- will back him out of range of the elbow. FWIW.
    Clear mind, clear movement. Mastery of the Arts is mastery over the Self. That in this moment, this motion, the thoughts, memories, impulses and passions that cloud the mind must yield to the clarity of purpose, and purity of motion.

    Wonder if it was added as a "maybe" move

    I'm not a huge fan of one hand techniques ...
    but, in this instance, we should have both his hands trapped against our chest .. so as he reflexes away, he shouldn't get further than arms length away.
    and .. the continued motion of the right hand, collapsing on to his arms for a strike ... should pull him back in a bit.
    So .. the throat chop should move him back a bit, again, ... but hopefully stilll trapped with our left.
    and ... shuffles go where they need to go to make a technique work (but should not affect the timing).

    And ... don't forget ... when being pulled forward... there's no reason why that step forward can't land, with authority, on his right foot. So much better to keep the centerline closed, and avoid the unintentional rising knee (if he really is knocked away).
