Grabbing or pushing into this area is great for disorienting an incoming attacker. When pressing upon this area, adversary tends to retreat with immediate loss of power in his technique. Follow-up with disbalancing opponent (ashi-barai or grab legs or shoot (for the fast and furious)). When hitting incoming attacker into this area, very dangerous. Simple fist is already enough, more damage in pinpoint precision of one-knuckle fist or fingers.
The area is a real fight stopper (one hit one kill ?).

When grabbing sweatty opponent though, grab tends to flinch off. Could leave opponent stunned for a while but don't count on it.

To everybody,

If you mean to strike this point with an your arm remember this:

If the hand of the arm that you're using is open put your corresponding foot firmly to the ground.

If the hand of the arm that you're using is closed (as in the fist) put the corresponding foot as in the cat stance (softly pulled up with the toe softly tuoching the ground)

This principle work also if you use the hand to strike, fist with cat stance or viceversa open hand with the foot on the ground.

This is an application of the yin and yang principle as relaxed and tense, open (yin) hand with tense (yang) foot, closed hand as fist (yang) with relaxed (yin) pulled up foot.
This application put your chi to flow more out from your hand. You can apply this principle also opening an hand if the other hand is striking with a fist and viceversa...
As you know this is only the tip of an iceberg about TCM, but remeber this concept help you a lot appliyng techniques.
Work with every point or techniques.
AH... I was forgetting an inportant things; applying this technique you have to make a distinction between mem and women:

MAN VS MAN and WOMAN VS WOMAN you must apply the principle as I have already defined.
MAN VS WOMAN or WOMAN VS MAN you must invert the principle: fist with foot on the ground and open hand with slightly pulled up foot (cat stance)

Somebody say that this add 25% of power to the technique, somebody other say that this add 50% of power...

I know that in accordance with the TCM the gain of power depend by your nature, tcm element, CHI TRAINING, and a lot of other things.

Try this with somebody softly striking and ask if he feel the difference.

I Would to open a new "Gavin style" principle of the month, if somebody is interested please tell me, if somebody think that these infos are not good to be shared in an internet forum please tell me...

I hope to be useful and I hope also to be comprensive.
The barrier built by my bad english is making me crazy.

Bye bye to everybody

Cool Daniele, blew my stuff completely out of the water. Very interesting stuff.

I would love for you to do a "me" (I like that!) principle post of the month! Oh, and for the record your english is probably a lot better then some of the posts on the forum from people whose first language is english (me included!) I found the post very imformative and concise and thoroughly hope you start the principle of the month....It's getting a bit lonely being the only one starting threads here!

Kindest regards,

Gav

PS. McSensei, guess what we're playing with at the weekend????

I'll show you how to do the revivals mate, but I'm not putting you out. Causing you lots of pain and suffering, yes, knocking you out, no!

Ok Gav,
I will start the principle of the month monday 3 october, so I have the time to elaborate a good program for the next months....
But now, to continue our ST-9 discussion, I want to show, to you and to everyone is interested, a good demonstration of the ST-9 strike...
Download here

You can see (not so clearly) the strike with the open hand and with the foot on the ground.
The yin and yang principle is also applied in the mental state of the two opponents:
The aggressor is borried ---> tense (yang)
The "defender" is calm ---> relaxed (yin)
So when they are in contact there's a transfer of chi, like with the electric current

In the other corner is not only instructive but is also funny.

Bye bye

Daniele Nosella

It's good, but the guy forgot one crucial part. After he knocked the pimp out he forgot to say, "Howz DAT biiaaaaaaach!"

Lovely shot, prime example of practical PP's! Can't wait for the principle of the month!

Cheers mate,

Gav

I guess the pain and suffering will have to do then.
