Self-Defence

The school of karate I follow is usually no or light contact, but sometimes Shihan rings the changes and pairs us up for some self-defence ("Do NOT use this in a tournament!"). Last night's delightful combination went as follows:

  1. Push attacker's arms down
  2. Hands behind attacker's neck, pull into headbutt
  3. Knee in ribs
  4. Push backwards, setting up for
  5. Kin geri kick to groin
  6. Heel of palm strike to nose
  7. Slap head down and sideways for
  8. Hammerfist strike to neck
