- Reaction score
And yet, I have done just exactly that many times.
At my school we typically do one-steps against a lunge punch. But my Master will also have people throw combinations at us. I don't usually grab the first punch, but I'll be able to move back and block a few until I can get my timing and catch one.
What I've found helps is not trying to grab the wrist, but rather trap it on the recoil. Grabbing the wrist itself is hard. Blocking the arm, closing the grip as they recoil until the hand catches is a lot easier. And if they pull their arm away, then they've opened up their guard a bit.
