Club Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 1

Attack:

Attacker steps in with the right foot toward the Defender and executes a right downward swing with a club targeting the left side of the Defender's head and neck.  This is a downward 45 degree angle. The Attacker is coming in from the 12:00 direction.

Defense:

01. Defender steps out with the left foot slightly toward the 10:00 direction.  The Defender executes a left downward forearm strike to the Attacker's mid right forearm on the inside.  The Defender has to have a 45 degree angle on the left forearm strike. The Defender's left elbow points to the horizontal 10:00 direction.  The upper part of the left arm is forward at a 45 degree angle. The strike is actually caused by the Defender suddenly bending the knees at the moment of contact. This technique is sophisticated and relies on timing. The Defender is attacking the Attacker and the attack simultaneously taking the battle to the attacker (beating him to the punch). If the Defender strikes too high toward the Attacker's right wrist, then the Defender will get struck with the club in the back of the head on the left side. If the Defender strikes too low towards the Attacker's right biceps muscle, then the Defender will get struck in the back on the Defender's left side.  The Defender's target is about four finger widths down the forearm toward the right wrist from the hollow of the elbow joint on the inside of the Attacker's right forearm and elbow.  The area which is struck has four meridian; Large Intestine, Lung, Pericardium, and the Heart.

02. The Defender rotates the Defender's right forearm in a counter clockwise motion right on the horizontal and vertical 9:00 to 3:00 line. This motion will put the Attacker's right arm in a type of figure four lock. The Defender begins the wrap while pulling the Attacker's right arm close to the Defender's chest. As the lock is being applied the Defender executes a right (palm facing down) chop strike to the right side of the Attacker's neck The Defender then cinches up on the Attacker's right triceps, trapping the Attacker's arm against the Defender's chest in a figure four type arm lock.

03. The Defender crescent steps forward and wraps around behind the Attacker's right leg with the Defender's right leg and into a "Square Riding Horse Stance" facing to 12:00. The Defender falls on the Attacker with the Defender's left shin and knee across the Attacker's neck and the Defender's right shin and knee on the Attacker's lower ribs on the Attacker's right side. The Defender moves the Defender's left arm and places the left arm on the outside of the Attacker's right arm on the Attacker's right triceps and below the Defender's right arm.  The Defender squeezes the Attacker's right upper arm against the Defender's chest with both arms until the Attacker releases the grasp on the club.  The Defender then executes a right downward bottom fist strike to the Attacker's solar plexus targeting the Attacker's heart.

04. The Defender releases the hold on the Attacker, gets up, retrieves the club, and steps back into a guarded stance while looking around in all directions for other potential attackers.

Club Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 2

Attack:

Attacker steps in with the right foot toward the Defender and executes a right downward swing with a club targeting the left side of the Defender's head and neck.  This is a downward 45 degree angle. The Attacker is coming in from the 12:00 direction.

**** This technique is similar in motion to Punch Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 13 (b) and a movement sequence in Pinan # 7 ****

Defense:

01. The Defender steps in with the left foot toward the 10:00 direction and executes a left forward, downward forearm strike to the Attacker's mid right forearm on the inside.  The Defender has to have a 45 degree angle on the left forearm strike. The Defender's left elbow points to the horizontal 10:00 direction.  The upper part of the left arm is forward at a 45 degree angle. The strike is actually caused by the Defender suddenly bending the knees at the moment of contact. This motion is followed by stepping in with right foot in a horizontal counter clockwise arcing pattern so that the stance shifts into a "Riding Horse Stance" facing to the 9:00 direction. The Defender's feet are on the horizontal 12:00 to 6:00 line.  As this stance shift is initiated the Defender executes a "Right Forward and Downward Forearm And Bottom Fist Strike" to the Attacker's right biceps muscle close to the deltoid muscle.

02. The Defender simultaneously steps in a horizontal clockwise motion with the left foot 1:00 while executing a left over the Attacker's right punching arm vertical counter clockwise wrap, which hyper extends the Attacker's right arm. The wrap becomes a left first two knuckle punch and dig through strike targeting the rib above the Attacker's right floating rib at the Attacker's back.  This strike digs along the Attacker's right floating rib from back to front.  This strike will turn the Attacker to the left or in a horizontal counter clockwise motion exposing the back of the Attacker's neck and head.  The Defender cinches up on the elbow lock on the Attacker's right elbow by grabbing with the Defender's left hand the Defender's own right upper lapel area.  As this motion is accomplished, the Defender executes a right forearm strike (fist palm facing down) to the back of the Attacker's neck and head. The Defender then grabs the Attacker's upper shoulder next to the neck and pulls the Attacker toward the Defender's chest while turning the Defender's right fist clockwise to dig the Defender's right knuckles into the nerves in that area. The Defender grabs with the Defender's left hand the Defender's right upper forearm and pulls the Attacker toward the Defender's chest.  The Defender is squeezing the Attacker's right arm and shoulder.

03. The Defender steps in a horizontal clockwise crescent step motion behind the Attacker's right front leg toward the 4:00 direction and into a "Riding Horse Stance" facing to the 1:30 direction. This motion sweeps the Attacker's right leg out from underneath. As the Attacker falls the Defender first lowers the "Riding Horse Stance" then suddenly shifts the stance to a high riding horse stance while leaning back and looking up.  This motion hyper extends and or breaks the Attacker's right arm at the elbow joint.

04. The Defender lands on top of the Attacker with the Defender's left shin and knee on the Attacker's neck and the Defender's right shin and  knee on the Attacker's lower ribs on the Attacker's right side. Just as the Defender's weight lands on top of the Attacker the Defender executes a right downward "Key" punch, using the middle finger second knuckle to the Attacker's right arm pit. The Defender is cinching up and squeezing on the Attacker's right arm at the same time as the strike.  The Defender is leaning back as the strike is accomplished.

05. The Defender releases the grasp on the Attacker's right arm, gets up and retrieves the club.  The Defender assumes a guarded stance while looking around in all directions for other potential attackers.

**** This technique is the opposite concept as # 1.  Where as # 1 there is very limited motion on behalf of the Defender (Earth Style) # 2 is "dump the clutch at five grand and go for it" type of technique (Water Style).  The technique is a classic example of the Kajukenbo philosophy of attacking the attacker.  Club Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 2 has several strikes, wraps, gouges, pressure point targeting going on all at the same time as the stepping. This is an amazingly fast and fluid technique.

Club Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 3

Attack:

Attacker steps in with the left foot toward the Defender and executes a right downward swing with a club targeting the left side of the Defender's head and neck.  This is a downward 45 degree angle. The Attacker is coming in from the 12:00 direction.

**** This technique is similar in motion to Punch Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 13 (b) and a movement sequence in Pinan # 7.  This technique is almost the same as Club Attack Counter Self Defense Technique # 2 with the exception that the Attacker steps in with the left foot instead of the right foot. ****

Defense:

01. The Defender steps in with the left foot toward the 10:00 direction and executes a left forward, downward forearm strike to the Attacker's mid right forearm on the inside.  The Defender has to have a 45 degree angle on the left forearm strike. The Defender's left elbow points to the horizontal 10:00 direction.  The upper part of the left arm is forward at a 45 degree angle. The strike is actually caused by the Defender suddenly bending the knees at the moment of contact. This motion is followed by a right forward crescent step toward the 12:30 direction between the Attacker's legs so that the stance shifts into a "Riding Horse Stance" facing to the 10:00 direction. As this stance shift is initiated the Defender executes a "Right Forward and Downward Forearm And Bottom Fist Strike" to the Attacker's right biceps muscle close to the deltoid muscle.

02. The Defender simultaneously steps in a horizontal clockwise motion with the left foot 1:00 while executing a left over the Attacker's right punching arm vertical counter clockwise wrap, which hyper extends the Attacker's right arm. The wrap becomes a left first two knuckle punch and dig through strike targeting the rib above the Attacker's right floating rib at the Attacker's back.  This strike digs along the Attacker's right floating rib from back to front.  This strike will turn the Attacker to the left or in a horizontal counter clockwise motion exposing the of the Attacker's neck on the Attacker's right side.  The Defender cinches up on the elbow lock on the Attacker's right elbow by grabbing with the Defender's left hand the Defender's own right upper lapel area.  As this motion is accomplished, the Defender executes a right forearm strike (fist palm facing down) to the Attacker's neck on the right side and steps in slightly with the Defender's right foot even deeper between the Attacker's legs. The Defender then grabs the Attacker's upper shoulder next to the neck and pulls the Attacker toward the Defender's chest while turning the Defender's right fist clockwise to dig the Defender's right knuckles into the nerves in that area. The Defender grabs with the Defender's left hand the Defender's right upper forearm and pulls the Attacker toward the Defender's chest.  The Defender is squeezing the Attacker's right arm and shoulder.

03. The Defender pivots around counter clockwise with the Defender's body and sweeps around with the Defender's left foot to be placed near the Defender's right foot. The Defender bends both knees and jams the Defender's right hip under and into the Attacker's groin.  The Defender has turns the Defender's head to the Defender's left shoulder and tucked the Defender's chin in to touch the Defender's upper chest. As the Attacker is thrown the, the Defender shift into a "High Riding Horse Stance", leans back and looks up.  This motion prevents the Attacker from pulling the Defender down with the throw. The movement will also hyper extend the Attacker's right elbow and make the Attacker fall on the Attacker's left side pinning the Attacker's left arm.

04. The Defender lands on top of the Attacker with the left shin and knee on the Attacker's neck and the right shin and knee on the Attacker's lower ribs on the Attacker's right side. As the Defender lands, the Defender executes a right downward "Key" punch to the Attacker's right arm pit.

****Variations to the throw are (a) As the Attacker is thrown over the Defender's right hip, the Defender raises the right leg in a straight legged upper vertical sweep. This movement will sweep the Attacker's right leg. This movement increases the height at which the Attacker falls. "Outer Reap" (b) Defender executes an upward right straight legged sweep to the inside of the Attacker's left upper thigh. "Inner Reap" (c) Defender steps out toward the 10:00 direction with the right leg so that the Attacker trips over the Defender's extended right leg.  This last variation is a quicker throw, lower to the ground and requires less strength to execute. ****
 
05. The Defender releases the lock on the Attacker's right arm.  Defender retrieves the club and steps back into a guarded stance while looking around in all directions for other potential attackers.
