How many basic stances are there?
A combination of techniques; side chop, T-stance; change to square stance, execute a powerful reverse punch with a loud gi’yup
Stepping off with left foot into a T-stance, arms are crossed at shoulder height with chopping arm on the inside; swing chopping arm straight out to the side, sharply twisting wrist as you strike with the edge of the palm of your hand. As body weight is shifted forward, the impact is only made with the fatty part of the hand
While in motion, the blocking arm drops below the waist (covering the lower abdomen) and rises straight upward in a slight circular motion as if to remove a T-shirt with one hand; the blocking arm is on the outside of the other arm blocking any attack to the upper body and face, palm out, wrist level with forearm.
There are three basic actions of this standard kick: the first action is the chambering of the lower part of the leg; the second action is the lifting of the knee as high as possible (when reaching maximum height the bottom part of the leg strikes out like a cobra snake, making a powerful impact with the ball of the foot); the third action is the re-chambering of the lower leg as it is placed back down
Crossing at the opposite shoulder, with blocking arm inside, palm toward the ear; point of contact is with the outside forearm in a downward motion in front of upper part of body; the arm is straight stopping two fists above the knee
Same application as the low punch, except that the control point is target #1 on the striking line
Lift rear leg, bent knee hip high, pivot on standing leg, kick out horizontally (upward motion for height). Exact application as the front kick except on a horizontal plane. The knee is pointing toward the target and never crosses the control point. The direction of force is horizontal
Slight circular motions with both hands open; chop as if to block an attack to face. Right hand palm up; fingers pointed at left elbow; left hand palm out; finger tips at eye level; right elbow (inside) 10 inches away from body; left arm 45 degree angle
Stepping out into a T-stance; left arm makes big circular motion across upper portion of body including the face, outside opposite arm, stopping the arm at 45 degree angle to the front, blocking with inside of forearm, opposite hand/fist at right hip, looking over the knuckles of hand/fist
The blocking arm reaches across the lower body as if grabbing for a handkerchief out of your back pocket and throwing it across the side and front of your body. The focus point is under the chin with the arm bent 45 degrees palm facing you.
