    Default Favorite SD Technique?

    What is your favorite self defense technique and why?

    For me, I happen to like Circiling Fans from 3rd Brown (24 technique system) and Fatal Cross 2nd Brown.

    I like Circliling Fans for the snap kick followed by the shot to the face. The "right handed" version is comfortable for me because I tend to lead with my right hand.

    I love Fatal Cross for the knee strikes in it.

    Figured this would help stir up some insightful conversation about the self defense techniques.

    Doesn't matter, the extensions bring up different concepts than the base techniques as they are not quite identical.

    Well I like most of the 2nd and 3rd black extensions. There is still overkill but....there is just something about them that I like, I can't exactly put my finger on it.

    But my all time favorite technique is Thundering Hammer. It is just a non stop blitz on they guy, you just keep going and going like the energizer bunny. Until you kick him square in the face. LOL

    One of my fav's is Glancing Salute becuase of the multidude of options you have during and after the actuall technique. It just flows well, very aggressive.

    Others that are on my list of favorites are: Deflecting Hammer, Obscure claws (with a handsword to throat after the left palm-heel), Returning Storm, Thundering Hammers...I could go on all day

    I have a profound appreciation for Destructive Twins after a seminar by Mr. Trejo where we worked Destructive Twins into the sticky hands drill.

    Sword Of Destruction is my all time favorite technique. Obscure Claws is a close second.

    Thusfar in my Kenpo knowledge; Obscure Sword. Very tough and hard to get correctly.

    Obscure Sword was a fun one at the time I had to learn it. It is a fun one to teach too.
