Method of Attack: Front Two-Hand Push
Within the category of attack Pushes, there are 7 two hand pushes, 5 of which are high, applied to the chest or shoulders. This video features two of them: Alternating Maces and Snaking Talon. The drill will enhance your ability to decrease your reaction time to the “what if” situations–in this case, blocking only the left arm when you apply Alternating Maces. More response time alloys you to apply the correct counter: Inserting a right outward block, a right front kick, and altering the weapon & adjusting the target.
