    Default Bow of Compulsion

    Sweet Technique

    Bow of Compulsion (Front- Wrist Lock; Against Attacker's Chest)
    1. An attacker at 12 o'clock pins your right hand against their chest.

    2. Put your left hand on top of your attacker's pin. Step to 12 o'clock with your right foot into a right neutral bow. Simultaneously with this step collapse your right arm into a right downward elbow to your attacker's solar plexus or possibly groin.

    3. With your left hand still in a diagonal guard position, sink into a right wide kneel stance as you rake down your attacker's body through your attacker's groin.

    4. Immediately reverse your motion and execute a right reverse handsword to your attacker's groin.

    5. Execute a right backfist to your attacker's left knee.

    6. Following a figure-8 pattern, execute a right punch to your attacker's right knee.

    7. Cross out towards 7:30.

    Where is there a figure eight pattern? Backknuckle and than a steight line to his right knee.

    Round out the the action after the back knuckle and you end up with a figure pattern with out the 2nd loop of the 8
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Yep Rob, that's exactly the way I do it. It really does add some power to the strike to round out the punch to the knee. I love figure 8's. It would be interesting to note which other techs they show up in. Hmmm... maybe a new thread.

    Peace,

    Donna

    if the groin strike and backfist to the right knee are effective, the target of the punch coming off the Fig-8 may be his face (and not the left knee). a good wide kneel could take out that left knee and collapse his ankle...

    How does your hand end up pinned against the opponents chest??? Is it assumed that you walked up and grabbed them by the shirt for instance? That would be inappropriate behavior for a Kenpoist don't ya think? Just something I've always wondered about concerning this technique...how did you end up there in the first place!?!

    Thoughts?

    How about some type of verbal altercation and the attacker keeps walking towards you and you decide to put your arm out to keep them away. While still trying to talk your way out of it they decide to wrist lock you?

    could happen in a thousand different scenarios, could be a lazy check that stayed in place a little too long.

    the attack, as i learned from chin na, is a nasty wrist lock. Dr Yang, Jwing-Ming calls it "child worships the buddha", because of the 'prayer hands' to set the angle and the 'bowing' that would lock the tendons in the wrist...

    that is why that first action in 'Bow of Compulsion' is necessary to prevent the attacker from setting the angle.

    Good point. I hadn't thought of it that way. Probably because I would never hold my hand up in that manner. I'm a little impatient with people that threaten me Also, with a background in grappling I wouldn't want to "hand" any of my extremities to a potential opponent. But I can now see how it could be applicable to a lot of people (especially to ones with more patience than me. LOL) From that perspective I can see it's use. Or as pete said, you could get stuck by leaving a check in place too long. Thanks for the input and "opening" my eyes!
