Wow, im going to have a hard time describing this.....
Ah forget about it, if i can actually do something with it, or actually properly describe it, then i guess it will be a topic for discussion.
Otherwise, id just be throwing useless theory, like this dude: :phil2:
I know what your talking about AAAhmed46. Rubbing your forearm against the neck after a forearm strike but its got a big push to it. In my Kempo school they said that with the gi on it would be like a saw. Even without it thats how they described it.
It doesnt work though.
The only thing I see thats close to it that works is cross facing.
yeah i get what you mean aahmed. i was using rubbing to belittle the idea. it won't work, trust me.
Damn, i really thought i had come up with something that i could use to genki sudo people with(be unorthodox)
"Short power?" You can get it out of a rearhand vertical fist (not a wing chun punch; it hits with the first tw knuckles and rises slightlly) or short uppercut as well, or with a jab. I dn't go for it in a jab because the "short power" thing comes from waist and shoulder rotation and overdoing opens you up when you jab. With the rear hand, you can get it in after capping and pushing the other guy's arm and getting the shot in as you enter to clinch.
As for forearm strikes; I know a few guys I respect who swear by them as a strong shot that can blindside a guy. I've only found them useful as dissuading techniques, especially to the limbs. Once a guy's fighting there's no point, but before that point it causes a bit of pain and doesn't really look like ye olde fightin' technique.
