Counter to Rear Hand Punch

Counter to rear hand punch is used when the aggressor throws a rear hand punch.

Technique

~ Begin with the aggressor in the basic warrior stance extending his right hand in a rear hand punch.
~ Step forward and to the left at approximately a 45-degree angle, moving in toward the aggressor. At the end of the movement, return to the basic warrior stance with the left foot forward and the toe pointing toward the aggressor.
~ At the same time, raise your left arm and block or deflect the aggressor’s rear hand. Do not over extend and reach for the block. Block with the meaty portion of the forearm.
~ Leave your left arm against the aggressor’s right arm while stepping forward and to the right at approximately a 45-degree angle to close with the aggressor. Follow through by applying pressure against the aggressor’s arm to redirect the strike and, in the process, throw the aggressor off balance. Continuing to step forward will position you to strike an exposed area on the aggressor.
~ Counter with at least three follow-on strikes or techniques to the aggressor’s exposed target areas and return to the basic warrior stance. See figure 2-39.
