Telegraphing a strike informs your aggressor that your intentions are to launch an attack through your body movements. Often, an untrained fighter will telegraph his intention to attack by drawing his hand back in view of his aggressor, changing facial expression, tensing neck muscles, or twitching.
These movements, however small, immediately indicate an attack is about to be delivered. If your aggressor is a trained fighter, he may be able to evade or counter your attack. If your aggressor is an untrained fighter, he may be able to minimize the effect of your attack. Staying
Lead Hand Punch
The lead hand punch is a snapping straight punch executed by the forward or the lead hand. It is a fast, unexpected punch designed to stun an aggressor and to set up for follow-on techniques. A lead hand punch conceals movement and allows you to get close to the aggressor. If possible, lead hand punches should strike soft tissue areas.
The striking surface is the first two knuckles of the fist.
Target Areas of the Body
Soft tissue areas such as the nose, the jaw, and the throat are the primary target areas.
~ Assume the basic warrior stance.
See figure 2-6.
