We've discussed or are discussing aspects of the SKK system, forms application and principles along with combinations against varying attacks, but how about the concepts of the techniques. I believe that at least with the original combinations, the originator(s) were trying to teach us something. I am having trouble with some, trying to understand what that might be. I would like to hear from all you SKK types as to what you might think the concepts could be. Here we go, let's keep our minds open and see what we all can come up with!! I'll start with one that we've discussed before, combination #6 ... A linear kick can defeat a punch. Yes, I believe it to be that simple and straight forward. A person from the front punches, it matters not if it is a jab, cross, hook, uppercut, etc., throw that kick with proper timing and he can't hit you. The kick can be anywhere from the shin up, with a varying degree of success. Against a jab, the kick would need to be lower for the fact that there is less time to deliver it with the speed of the punch. A person attacking from behind could run into a back kick, still combination #6, just a different direction. However, it is a linear kick defeating a punch. Same goes for a person approaching from either side, linear side kick defeats a punch. Yes, it could be someone attempting to grab or push as well.
