Dear PP 'R Us,
Wow, first customer, I feel so special! Just something off the top of my head is one of our one-step sparring techniques. Our one-steps are more for teaching ideas than specific uses for specific attacks;i.e. synchronous attack/block, getting of the line of attack, pre-emptive stirke, etc. But I know that this one definitely has PP potential(you can copyright that ).

-Standing in neutral stance the attacker attacks with a punch to the face.
-Defender takes small slide step to opposite side the punch is coming from(getting off the line) and performs block to the attacking arm and simultaneous strike to the neck. Exact technique can vary, I usually perform this with a knifehand block and knifehand strike(shuto), but it can be done with closed-fist techniques as well.

Please, please, pressure pointerize my technique.

Sincerely,
Lost in PP Land

Well if there was ever a set of moves that needed more sprucing up than that, I haven't seen them! Hopefully we've caught them in time!

I presume by stepping to the opposite side to the punching hand you are stepping to your opponents inside. If the punch is coming from the right hand you'll take your offline and check the punch using your left hand with your right hand delivering the knife hand to the right side of the attackers neck.

For the knife hand you have a lovely shot at Small Intestine 16! Make your knife hand a heavy dull shot (like an axe chopping at a tree). This will cause a really nice jolt into your opponents body!

To attack the punching arm may we recomend a grasping of some Heart and Lung points, with a possible strike to a Large Intestine point maybe to start with! If it is available when checking the punching arm strike Large Intestine 10 using a sharp strike with the heel of the hand, a hammer fist or radial bone. Cutting it towards the wrist of the punching hand. Now for the grab! Slide your left hand down the top of the forearm and latch your hand over the wrist. Your fingers should be grasping the underside of the radial (outside edge) of the wrist, with you thumb hooked under the medial (inner edge) of the wrist. If you look at a PP diagram you'll see that your fingers are covering 3 Heart Meridian points Heart 5, Heart 6 and Heart 7. Your thumb is over Lung 8. Squeeze your fingers and thumb into these points and push in towards the wrist, this will really fire up the nerves around these points! When you actually put this on, give the the punching a good tug to really open up the neck for the knife hand to Small Intestine 16!

We hope you enjoy your pointerized technique and have years of happy hurting!

Yours Faithfully,

The PP 'R Us Crew!

What's up guys. Sounds like you guys got it all figured out. Good stuff you got here. In this situation I usually teach to dead arm strike to Lung 5. This eliminates the latching and pullig of the wrist to open up the neck because as we all know, a strike to Lung 5 will cause your opponents knees to buckle and neck to open up, offering up an easy line in to either Large Intestine 10 or even Stomach 9. You can execute this in a few different ways. Dead arm to Lung 5 causing the the neck to open up and contour up opponents arm with the same hand to Stomach 9 or LI 10 OR you can use one hand to strike to lung 5 and the other to go the neck. (hmmmm what kata have i seen that in). Quick and effective, enable you to put a quick end to an aggresive situation. Man...it's been good talking meridians with you. Hope you try this one out, it's a very effective technique. Later.

Cheers on the replys Gavin and KempoDenz.

One quick question on the use of the points. It seems in your suggestions that you are applying the arm strike before the neck strike, while in our one-step they are performed simultaneously. Is there any difference in using the points together as opposed to in succession?

Thanks, this is cool.
Joel


PS-Welcome aboard, Mr. Stutely, I have heard very good things about you and your work.(you can blame Gavin )

Hi there Mr Stutely sir,
Welcome to FA.com.

I'd just like to say that I never believed all those things Gavin said about you and consider you a top MA.

Gavin,
Ha, get out of that one, Mr Moderator.
