This is not a question I just want to know how you stop haymakers. Let me start by explaining how I defend against them. I like to step in close to my opponent and use an open hand block. I keep my block very close to my head and aim to block near the elbow. I follow with an upward palm strike with my other hand at almost the same time as the block. I try and make the defense as easy and quick as possible. Alright now that you know how I like to block haymakers how do you do it?

What?

Generally,when practicing against cowboy punches I use the double knifehand to points on the arm followed by a knifehand to the neck.

I use a 720degree tornado kick to the inside wrist bone, shattering same and disabillating the opponent.

oh, wrong thread....
there are many defenses to what we call a street punch, one that we do is duck by dropping into a low "horse" stance stepping foreward and into the side which the punch is thrown.(a diagonal line to the punching side)
then raise my hand to hold the striking arm between the shoulder and elbow and explore the possabilities that are now open to me.

there is no one sure way to stop any blow. When and if someone throws a "haymaker" my way, my body will defend in the correct way. I never get set on one technique because this is not practical.

Will go over stopping/redirecting a "haymakers" during the self defense part of the get together. Have some nice techniques that end up in arm, wrist, shoulder locks and throws.....see you February 26th!

Just to let you know I am not going to be there I addressed this already. Sorry Schanne but I have a lot of things to do in Feb. I just found out last week the I will have to teach more class in Feb. because my instructor will be away.

On another note good posts everyone. I am glad to see that everyone is giving me good insight.

Just step off at a 45 Degree angle And Uka Or Block the punch with ur knuckles, Or even Use Shutos Or Just stright Kick him into His stomach Before It reaches,. Haymakers are kinda slow,Cause of all the energy and power It takes, But allways Step off At 45 Degree angles When you block, It limits The chance Of you getting hit,

If we're using the same definition of Haymaker... (A wildly swung punch with a huge wind up that you can see coming from miles away)

Simply step out of the way. As the attacker is caught in the riptide of his own momentum, you then employ your Nike-do technique.
