Kenpo Technique

HUGGING PENDULUM (front right side kick)

  1. While in a fighting stance (right neutral bow), shuffle back slightly as you deliver a right hammering downward diagonal block (hooking your blocking arm so that it travels from 11 o'clock to 5 o'clock) on the outside of opponent's right kicking leg.
  2. Immediately do a left front crossover as your right hand cocks horizontally across your body (palm in) with your left hand in guarding position and deliver a right knife-edge kick to inside of opponent's left knee.
  3. Follow-up with a right horizontal back knuckle strike to opponent's mastoid or temple (as you plant your right foot forward) arching wide to the right and returning with a right inward horizontal hooking heel of palm claw to opponent's face while maintaining bend in your right elbow.
  4. Right front crossover and cover out to 6 o'clock.
