Actions of the Aggressor

The striking pad should always be held in a position so that the person who is performing the technique connects in the center of the striking pad.

Vertical Hammer Fist

The striking pad is held out in front with both arms out like you are carrying a lunch tray as shown in figure 2-27. Transfer of the hips/torso into all techniques will generate power.

Horizontal Hammer Fist

The striking pad is held close to the body and the aggressor turns 45- to 90-degree angle to accommodate the angle of the strike.

Eye Gouge

The striking pad is held with both hands holding the straps. The aggressor extends his top hand allowing you to execute the technique on the top corner of the striking pad. You should never execute this straight into the striking pad. Take advantage of the slope of the striking pad to minimize the chance of jamming a finger while practicing this technique. See figure 2-28.

Vertical Elbow Strike (Low to High)

The striking pad is held out like the eye gouge to create a horizontal striking surface replicating the aggressor’s chin.

Horizontal Elbow Strike

The striking pad is held with one arm through the center straps as shown in figure 2-29, and the other arm upholds the top strap to protect the head. The aggressor holding the striking pad stands directly in front of you, while you execute the elbow strikes. The aggressor can change his angle to you up to 90-degrees in order to give you different angles of attack.
