Example Technique for Defending Others

1 1

As the attacker moves in to punch with the right hand, the protector must create space between the weapon and the target by pushing the target back and deflecting the strike.

2 2

The protector ends up in a safe position still covering the target, the attackers momentum has carried them forward to strike with a second punch.

3 3

Having obtained a tactical position the protector easily stops the attackers second punch halting them in their tracks.

4 4

Without pausing, the protector continues the movement to capture the attackers small finger in a gyaku.

5 5

It is important to keep the space open and ensure the target remains protected and out of the conflict. A full circle view of the terrain has now been obtained.

6 6

The protector sends the attacker tumbling away, and ensures the safe status of the target.
