American Kempo Karate Techniques : The Detour from Doom Kenpo Karate Technique
Hi! I am Joe Palanzo from the World Wide Kenpo
Karate Association in conjunction with Expert Village. This technique is called detour from
doom and it is technique against a round house kick, a right round house kick. So what we
are going to do on the first move of course is to get out of the way. As the kick comes
in, I am moving up the line this way so I am out of the line of power and I am stopping
his forward motion with a punch to the chin. At the same time, my lower arm is going to
help divert the kick past him. As he plants forward, he falls forwards. I am going to
try to manage a little kick here, check his shoulder and punch to the solar plexus. At
this time I am going to adjust myself and strike a little lower to bend him forward,
grabbing his head and pulling it down and finishing with a hammer fist behind the neck.
Now the interesting part here is that you could actually eliminate either the hand or
the foot. The idea here is that you have a choice based on the distance that if I am
this far away, I can stop him with my leg and of course if I am closer, I am stopping
with my fist. Then the follow ups are incidental I mean you can do lots of other different
things. This one is called detour from doom.
