Pinan Nidan Opening Sequence Punch

June 5, 2019

The opening sequence of Pinan Nidan/Heian Shodan can also be applied as a response to or defense against a sucker punch or a wild, haymaker punch. The kata makes use of the natural flinch response and teaches the combative principle of getting off to the side, away from the enemy’s other striking hand. This drill also applies the step punch movement as a neck crank–be very careful practicing this technique with your partner.
