Koden Kan Karate Moves for Beginners : The Wedge Move in Koden Kan Martial Arts
Hi! I’m Madison Warner and I’ve been instructing
for over 10 years for Michael M. Foley system of Koden Kan Karate and if you’d like to
see more about our school and our style please go to h2hctc.com or my website is mellei.com.
Today we’re going to learn our first self defense technique and it’s called the wedge.
Okay you’re just going to stand normally with your feet about shoulder width apart
and this is from an attacker choking you, so what you’re going to do is you’re going
to bring your fist up, cover it with your other hand, don’t do this…do this…you’re
going to step to the inside of their stance and you’re going to thrust your hands up
through their arms, so that’s break the choke hold, then you’re going to bring your
hands back here and strike to the bridge of the nose, then you’re going to grab behind
their neck and do a knee to the groin as you simultaneously bring their head into your
shoulder. This is you know obviously going to get them go away, okay and let me just
show you how that would work on a person, she comes in and does the choke, I’m going
to step in, bring my fist up, cover it and I’m going to keep my elbows out as I do
this and that breaks the choke, you’re going to strike to the bridge of the nose, when
you grab behind the neck keep your thumbs up so you can control where the head goes
and you’re going to bring their head into your shoulder as you lift into a knee to the
groin, okay and that’s the wedge.
