Especially if he was eating soup. Oyster crackers flying all over the place, wet napkins.Upon Re-reading my initial reply, I realize it would be very rude to push him when his lunch is being delivered. I mean, the fellow just wants a good meal after all. Let him have his lunch.
My GrandMaster, Florentino S. PanciPanci, utilized this technique extensively. It requires a great amount of experience to identify and react to the attack that early, though.When your opponent throws a right punch at you, if you can push on his right shoulder, you can stop his punch before that punch can generate enough speed and power. You can solve the problem during the initial stage.
This simple solution has not been used very often in the striking art, why?
My arms are short in comparison to many people I spar with. I'm going to give this one. Review of . Bad idea for people with shorter arms than the person punching lol.At what point In The delivery of his lunch are you able to push on his shoulder? When he first starts to move and his lunch is nowhere near you? At the end just before he lands it? Somewhere in the middle?
This is when I do the technique. An opponent throws a punch = punch is already out of the gate. Me striking my opponent as he begins his punch = I'm striking my opponent before he can complete this beginning stage of his punch. This is much safer than trying to do the same thing when that punch is out of the gate.The more common application for this concept is just a jab to the face as the opponent begins his punch.
It seems to me that if your reflexes are such that you can see an opponent launching a punch and you can punch the opponent's shoulder before the punch arrives, then your reflexes are better than the opponent's reflexes and you could probably do a number of thing to avoid the punch, such as blocking, ducking, or punching the opponent on the nose.
Since your opponent can lean his head back, your punch that can reach to his shoulder may not be able to reach to his head.Seems a valid use, but I would think that if you can land this, then you could land a punch to the face which would be more effective?
The main purpose of this thread discussion is not just to push on your opponent's shoulder when he punches you. The key discussion of this thread is to interrupt your opponent's attack during the initial stage with the minimum amount of effort.I see what you mean, but the clip shows you are in range you punch to the head.
I mean takedown is a good option aswell, but maybe hit them in the face first to distract? It's going to distract more than hitting the shoulder
