    It has the appearance similar to a vertical outward block, but it wasn't designed as one. It was actually designed as a forearm smash.

    That is, you hit them with the reverse punch, they bend over from the shot, and then you catch them with the forearm.

    Hmmm. Not seeing it in Destructive Twins. Maybe I do it differently. What part?

    Question Re: a forward bow stance and a vertical outward block

    Thanks for the answers or replies. The important thing that I am trying to understand is: any basic from one division can be simultaneously used in combination with any basic from a different division--according to InfiniteInsightsIntoKenpo, volumes 2 and 3. For a real fight and training practice, that means any basic hand and arm striking block--such as the vertical outward with the same front hand and arm over the same front foot and leg--can be done from a forward bow stance while momentarily stationary?

    step off out of the choke ... right inward .. pivot to forward bow as you left vertical outward block clearing the arm then proceed w/ eye poke.

    I have seen some schools do distructive twins like that, but that is only in the forms and not when you do the actual technique. It takes too much time.

    You're right. I misread the title. I was still thinking outward block and elbow. That's what happens when you jump back and forth between screens.

    You are correct ma'am. Most when thinking of this 'combination' envision the blocking hand forward instead of inline with the shoulder reference points that make it completely functional. Good obs. Oh, and by the way, the technique can be done that way quite efectively.

    Really? Too much time? How slow are you doing the technique?

    If you don't do it in the actual technique, how do you clear the left arm?

    Just noticing this thread is rather old. Maybe this will generate some further discussion.

    What other important facets of techniques are moved for the sake of increasing speed?
    Be safe,
