Hello karateka, hope you’re great! Today, how to defend against a haymaker punch. Often used in street fight. I am Lionel froidure, and my aim is to help you develop skills outside your own dojo. If you want tips, tricks, drills… to improve find the subscribe button. My structure need to be great. Structure goes forward. I am straight, and when it’s coming… From a side view it looks like that. I am not waiting the strike… Please strike harder. If I am waiting, he will make me bounce. Like in french bowling. It’s touching and then it’s bouncing. So when he’s striking me I am bouncing. Why ? Because I am not anchored and I am waiting. I am not putting forces against him. Let’s do it the right way. I am going forward with my hand and body. That’s changing everything. Forward and structure. Let’s do it another way. Another one. It’s the same. I compress the body, put it forward and put forces against him. It all about structure and putting pressure gainst him. Ask you partner to really to smack your face. Worst case, you will see some stars 🙂 No matter. At least you will learn how to defend yourself against an haymaker punch. See you soon for another video.
