Outside defense against punches. Eric, please. Sorry. All outside defense against punches- sorry, these outside defense against punches are executed from low base extend. That means your hands are not here. They are down below. Here's a punch.

Slow. Outside the line of fire I'm going to come by doing this. I'm just going to shift my body a little bit towards his live side. Since my hands are down below, the easiest way for the punch is just to bring the hand straight up. Again. Past my face. It's important to know the form of the lower part of my forearm and not the higher part of my forearm. If I do, I'm much weaker. The lower part carries a lot more strength.

Because I'm moving to the live side of my opponent, it is crucial that I'm going to strike him at the same time. It's not a block and a strike. I need to strike him immediately. To do so, I don't even rotate my shoulder because that rotation will consume time. I'm in the live side. I'll grab him, bring him into a knee to the groin and make separation.

One more time the motion. Thank you. Face forward. Take your basic stance. Bring it to a low basic stance. With the foot we're going one back. One back. With the hand, one. I need 90 degree and 90 degree. Back. One head low. Back. One and two. With the punch. One, back. One, back. And one and right away the hand comes to your face. Grab him, knee, we make separation. Again. One, two. Again. One, two. All in one. And one. Again, one. Please, Eric punch David. Right through, please, not fast. Again. Try to pay attention to 90. Again. Change places, please. Punch him, David. Again. Again. Thank you very much.
