    Default April 2006 Technique of the Month - Clipping The Storm

    Clipping the Storm (Front- Right Step-Through Thrusting Club)
    1. An attacker from 12 o'clock comes at you with a right step-through thrusting club.

    2. From a left neutral bow, step your left foot to 11 o'clock as you execute a left inward handsword to the outside of your attacker's right forearm. (Your right hand should be cocked at your right ear.)

    3. Shift into a left neutral bow as you execute a right inward handsword strike to the outside of your attacker's right wrist. (Your left hand now cocks at your right ear.)

    4. Step your right foot into a right cat stance as you execute a thrusting left outward hand sword to your attacker's throat. (Your right hand will slide down your attacker's right arm to check the top of their arm.)

    5. Step behind your attacker's right leg with your right leg as you execute a right palm strike to your attacker's chin. (Your left hand will check at your attacker's upper right arm.)

    6. Cross out to 7:30.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Pretty much what I have. Nothing really to add.

    For #3 above, I prefer (and was taught) to shift into a forward bow to maximize potential power through proper hip rotation in the handsword. Also, for that same move, instead of chopping the opponent's wrist, I go for the bicep.

    I agree, the forward bow gives better directional harmony for both the right handsword and the stance change to a cat. And I think I'll try the strike to the bicep sisnce striking the wrist can position him to thrust the stick/club between your legs and use it to take you down. Also seems it would check his width and limmit his immediate options to move.

    How about checks? When dealing with a weapon, I never chamber my strikes, even in the base/ideal phase. As one hand strikes, the other crosses to a check on the weapon arm.

    Instead of a cat and step behind, I do a knee strike to his lower quad which goes through an behind, then tracks down the back of his leg and stomps into a sweep at his posterior ankle/achiles tendon. A transitional forward bow (heel up), high close kneel or lunge stance with the handsword to his wrist or bicep sets you up perfect for this maneuver.

    I do the bicep chop too and instead of checking the arm, I do more of a crane to move it out of the way and to use as a possible push/pull for the chop.

    Here's ours:
    Step back to a Left cat stance with a R outward downward crane perry to the club the L hand is at the L hip.
    Step out to a left neutral bow with an inward palmheel strike to the back of the attackers hand. R hand is at the R hip.
    Rotate to a left forward bow with a R handsword to the forearm (radial nerve) L hand at L hip.
    Gather R foot to L foot and R handsword to the bicep R hand at R shoulder palm out finger up.
    Step through to a R neutral bow with a R heelpalm strike to the face L hand checks under the left arm.
    Universal takedown can be done at this point.

    For #2 above, the initial hand sword should work in-sync with your first step.

    If you take Clipping the Storm as done in Long Form 6, as you cross behind with your right foot and clear the opponent’s arm out of the way with your right arm, you can insert a right upward break to the opponent’s elbow before unwinding and executing the handsword.


    Clipping the Storm is a great technique.

    This is the one I am learning now, but seems to trip me up a little. I also noticed we seem to do this tech a little different than what is listed.

    The way I was taught, LF steps to 9:00 and RH does a downward parry and continues through to end over your right shoulder.

    Pivot to a left neutral bow, RH does an inward downward hand sword. LH loads at the right shoulder.

    RF slides into a cat LH does an outward hand sword to the neck
    RH chambers to your right side.

    RF steps forward to a Right neutral bow
    RH does a thrusting palm heel to the jaw
    LH in a positional check at about your solor-plex
    A black belt covers 2" of your butt. Covering the rest is soley up to you

    What if:

    He uses a staff instead of a club while using both hands?

    or another good one

    He pushes you into a wall BEFORE attempting to attack.

    Enjoy.

    Our inital movement on this technique is slightly different but the rest remains about the same. As we advance to 11:00 we execute a right handsword to the wrist concurrent with a left upward palm to the elbow to hyperextend. Then the right checks the arm while executing the left to the throat. It looks like we are combining #2 and #3 into one movement.

    Here is the way I wrote it in my notebook:

    • Step forward to 11:00 in to a left neutral with a left downward parry and a right handsword to the bicep
    • Right front twist with a left handsword to the throat
    • Pivot to a right neutral with a right palm strike to face
    • Cross out
