WINDMILL GUARD (Straight right punch)

  1. From a natural standing position, step to the left with your left foot as you move your head to the left (off the line of the attack). Simultaneously start parrying the punch with your left hand. Your right hand continues the parry as an open-handed extended outward block. (So, you double-factor the right hand block with the minor left hand parry.)
  2. As you complete the right hand block, pull your hand down your opponent's arm, capturing his arm, sleeve, or wrist. Pull his arm toward your side as you left roundhouse kick him in the midsection.
