    Hugging

    I felt very comfortable with it right from the beginning. It flows well for me.

    1) Execute a universal block, right over left
    2) Step foot-to-foot by bringing your left foot in and execute a right side snap kick to inside of opponent’s left knee
    3) Settled into a right neutral bow with a right back fist strike to opponent’s ribs
    4) Step back with the left foot into a deep rear twist simultaneously executing a left cupped palm strike to opponent’s right ear

    I think I'm gonna have to go with "Hugging Pendulum" on this one. I like doing that tech. and it seems to go smoothly and work well. Swinging pendulum is short and sweet (how we do it anyway), but I don't really like turning my back if I can help it.......it does work well though in this case.

    Retreating Pendulum is very short but sweet. It also kind of has a cool extension.

    I really love the pendulum techs, but my absolute favorite has to be Swinging Pendulum with the extension. For me it's like rock and roll all the way. I am short enough at a little less than 5' 5" to really work deep into the attacker's body on the extension. My favorite part is right from the obscure elbow into the stiff forearm as you extend their left leg (opens 'em way up) as you work your way around into the chop, heel palm - oh and the beautiful face to knee smash feeding into the lifting forearm and the ending eye hook, chop combo. Love it, love it, love it! It was one of those techs that just really clicked for me.

    Peace,

    Donna

    The EKKS must do a different version of this technique.

    Where do we turn our backs to our opponent? At what point in the technique are you referring to?

    I agree, sir. I wondered where the swing was at.

    I've found that some of our techniques are executed differently. But it appears this happens frequently with different organizations. Some of ours, I've learned from posting here, are even taught with the extensions included. That is why I supplied a description so that you would understand what I was refering to.

    On the very last move where you do the obscure elbow to the chin/jaw of the attacker. How are you positioned on this move? We do the universal block to the kick, then shuffle forward for the hammerfist strike and then shift so we are aligned.....facing the same way as the attacker, a little off to the left of him/her for the right elbow- which tracks up the body and strikes to the chin/jaw.

    Gotcha, I understand what you mean now.

    The idea here, however, is that your right leg is in position to buckle out the attacker's leg right after you contour up the body for the elbow to the chin.

    Is that the next move? To buckle the leg? Haven't learned the extensions.

    My favorite part of this technique is the riding forearm strike.

    I just love that strike!

    The person is there, getting beat up, then the next thing you know, their head is whipping back and their throat is totally exposed.

    Love that strike.

    I stick it in as an insert wherever I can.
