    Default September 2020 Technique of the Month - Alternating Maces

    September 2020 Technique of the Month - Alternating Maces

    Alternating Maces (Front- Two-Hand Push)
    1. An attacker at 12 o'clock pushes your shoulders with both hands.

    2. Step your left foot back to 6 o'clock into a right neutral bow facing 12 o'clock as you execute a right inward block to your attacker's outer left arm.

    3. Collapse your right arm across the top of both of your attacker's arms to check them down. Pivot into a right forward bow using torque as you execute a left vertical punch to your attacker's solar plexus.

    4. Instantly convert your left punch into a check by having it collapse (palm open and down) on top of your attacker's arms. Pivot back into a right neutral bow stance as you execute a right backfist strike to your attacker's temple, utilizing counter-torque for power.

    Joe Rebello explained in a video that the direction of the initial move was downwards rather than inwards originally. And I know a kenpoist who still prefers to do the technique that way.

    Personally, I am fine with the inward block version. However, I like to slightly pivot out of the way at the same time instead of stepping back in a straight line. Letting the incoming force pass by rather than stopping it and jamming up the attacker. That may work better for a huge guy than for a slender and agile dragon like me.

    That said, I do drive that inward block into the closer limb in order to unbalance the attacker and redirect them somewhat.
