Ed Parker American Kenpo: Destructive Fans

DESTRUCTIVE FANS (LEFT FLANK – Right Step Through Punch)


  1. With your left foot, step toward 8:00 and form a left modified fighting horse stance as you deliver a right outward parry followed by a left inward parry to the outside of the opponent’s right arm. As you settle into your stance, continue the clockwise circle of your right hand and deliver a right inward horizontal hammerfist strike (palm up) to the opponent’s solar plexus. Your left hand remains at his right elbow to act as a bracing angle check.
  2. Execute a left front crossover sweep toward 1:30 to sweep the opponent’s right leg. Your left hand completes its capture of your opponent’s right arm by grabbing his wrist and pulling on his arm in coordination with your sweep.
  3. From your right rear twist stance, pivot clockwise and form a right neutral bow stance as you deliver a right outward back knuckle strike to the opponent’s right kidney. Without a loss of motion, convert your rotational force to a linear force by sliding your right foot back to 1:30 and forming a left forward bow stance facing 7:30. Use the back of your right leg to execute a right rear stiffleg sweep to buckle the back of his right leg (calf to calf). Simultaneously with the sweep, execute a left downward diagonal thrusting heel palm strike to the opponent’s right jaw. Your left hand is still checking the opponent’s right arm.
  4. Execute a forward push-drag maneuver and drop into a left close kneel stance as you deliver a right downward thrust punch to the opponent’s head.
  5. With your opponent sitting on the ground, execute a right front thrusting ball of foot kick to this chin or any other available opening.
  6. From Point of Contact, execute a right front crossover and double cover out toward 2:30 .
