    Default Grafting - Favorite grafting techniques

    So......

    What are some of your favorite techniques to graft?

    I was doing leaping crane with the extension today and instead of going around in front of the person, I found it grafts nicely into leap of death.

    Any other favorites?

    I like to do Hooking Wings and just after the claw I go into Five Swords starting at the left hand striking the chin.

    I like grafting outward motion to a thrust. Its tricky but possible. For example the BK in alternating maces is a thrusting BK.

    Cool! I can visualize it, but will have to wait till this evenings class to actually try that one.

    I can't really think of two in particular that I like to graft at this moment. Perhaps it's too early in the morning. "Yawns." =)

    Here is a real cool advanced one:

    Defensive Cross into Entwined Maces.

    Just plant forward (instead of back) when executing the front kick in Defensive Cross (and make it a thrust) and hit the opponent with a right lifting forearm smash. From that point, go into the left rear crossover and right outward elbow strike from Entwined Maces and continue on with the rest of the technique.

    Definitely, one of my favorities.

    I graft all the time...unintentionally. I call it Daugherty-Do. My teacher just gives me a long suffering look and says "try it again".

    Funny.

    It's actually a compliment of sorts or rather a validation. It means that you're moving. It's the movement that counts, not the specific move.

    I put the wrong extensions ....uh, I mean I try grafting different extensions, onto the moves all the time.

    As long as it works.

    Here's a graft that I like to use for my beginners:

    Mace of Agression & Intercepting the Ram

    Scenario: Someone grabs you for Mace of Agression but you fail to pin the hands firmly as you begin to defend/attack

    After the hammer through the jaw and down to the arm, you lose the pin as their hand slips out. You try to complete the inward elbow, however, they duck under it and try to tackle you to the ground. As they duck the elbow, come through with the knee and overhead hammerfist from Intercepting the Ram while following the path of least resistance and planting hard with the overhead elbow to the spine using MoG. Typically I stop with the drop of the overhead elbow on the spine on this graft.

    This is also fun if you feel like working some ground fighting. Sometimes I just have them work a what-if scenario on this graft. If the attacker dodges the elbow and succeds in the tackle. I've had them work from a closed guard position and practice getting to a choke out. I personally like throwing this in, because, though I should never let anyone so close to me that I end up on the ground unless my knee is dropped on their face... so many fights do end up on the ground and personally I have to overcome a psychological barrier that reminds me of being trapped by my brother as a kid.. unable to move.

    Of course in regular class, we drill Mace of Agression over and over with a ton of emphasis on pinning those hands and being quick with the elbow. Of course the nice little scrape/stomp down the leg is a bit of a detterant from them coming in I would think. Ouch... that would really hurt with shoes on.

    Another one I enjoy: Circling Destruction & Five Swords

    Initial attack is a straight left punch. Execute Circling Destruction up to the back knucle. Clear the arm with a right inward hammerfist and follow through with an outward handsword to the neck and heel palm to the side of the face, grabbing and ripping through w/ opposing force as you uppercut to the kidneys for Five Swords on the back side of the body. Gotta love a nice uppercut to the kidneys.

    Yes I saw that a few months ago. When is he going to start back up with that?

    Thanks, Jamie. I miss my instructor(s), my head instructor has been out of the country for a few years now, and the other stepped away from the dojo over six months ago due to some unfortunate politics.

    He hinted, at a seminar recently, that the best way to get him to put up a tip is to comment on something and tell him it won't work.

    That gets him moving like nobody's business.
