Five Swords

This technique is one of the Kenpo Classics, part of the orange belt rank in American Kenpo Karate. You will see this technique on Form 4 which is executed on both sides, it also has an extension which is available for higher ranks as well. Simple, easy to learn and apply.

Five Swords step by step:

  1. While standing naturally with feet together, step forward and slightly to your left (to 11 o’clock) with your right foot (to a neutral bow) and deliver a right inward strike to the inside of opponent’s right punch using your left hand to check.
  2. Immediately strike to opponent’s right neck with your right outward chop.
  3. Left finger thrust (palm down) to opponent’s eyes as your right-hand cocks to your right hop. This is done while you pivot into a right forward bow.
  4. With left-hand now guarding horizontally and open (palm down), deliver a right uppercut to opponent’s solar plexus as you pivot to a right neutral bow.
  5. Immediately have your left foot slide counterclockwise (to 4 o’clock) into a right forward bow as you left heel of palm strikes to the left jaw of the opponent (striking in an outward fashion). Without hesitation and while shifting into a right neutral bow have your left-hand hook and pull opponent’s head down as you deliver a right overhead downward hand sword to the back of opponent’s neck.
