Ed Parker American Kenpo: Calming the Storm

CALMING THE STORM (FRONT – Right Roundhouse Club Attack)

BASE TECHNIQUE

  1. With your right foot, step forward and form a right neutral bow stance facing 12:00 as you execute a left extended outward block to the inside of the opponent’s right arm simultaneously with a right vertical punch to the opponent’s jaw.
  2. Pivot clockwise to form a right forward bow stance facing 12:00 as you execute a left vertical thrust punch to the opponent’s solar plexus. Your right hand slides down the opponent’s right arm as a check.
  3. Pivot counterclockwise and form a right neutral bow stance facing 12:00 as you deliver a right outward horizontal back knuckle strike to the opponent’s right lower ribs. Simultaneously reverse the motion of your left hand and covert it into a left upward hooking parry (like a waiter carrying a tray) to check on top of the opponent’s right arm.
  4. Execute a right front crossover and double cover out toward 7:30.

EXTENSION

  1. Grab the opponent’s right wrist with your left hand and deliver a right vertical forearm strike to the opponent’s elbow to hyper-extend or break it.
  2. Slide your right foot back to 6:00 to form a left neutral bow stance.
  3. Maintain the grab on your opponent’s right wrist and deliver a right outward back knuckle strike to his right ribs. Continue the counterclockwise motion of your right arm and deliver a right inward overhead hammerfist strike to the back of the opponent’s right ribs.
  4. Slide your left foot toward 4:30 to form a right neutral bow stance facing 10:30 as you push down on the opponent’s right armpit with your right hammerfist as you simultaneously pull his right (stiff arm) diagonally toward you to dislocate his right shoulder.
  5. Force the opponent face-downward to the ground and execute a left rear crossover to form a right front twist stance as you deliver a right outward downward back knuckle strike to the back of the opponent’s left ribcage.
  6. Step toward 6:00 with your left foot and drop to form a left close kneel stance to deliver a right knee drop to the back of the opponent’s left elbow to cause a break.
  7. Lift your right foot and form a right front rotating twist stance to deliver a right downward heel stomp to the right side of the opponent’s face. Immediately follow with a left knee drop to the back of his neck.
  8. Spring upward toward 7:30 to form a left one-legged stance facing 1:30. Execute a right front crossover and double cover out toward 7:30.
