How to do Lone Kimono Self Defense Technique

Lone Kimono

Lone Kimono is a Self-defense Technique found in the orange belt rank of the American Kenpo Karate system created by Edmund Parker. This technique is against a front left-hand lapel grab. This technique is found in some forms. Let’s go over the steps:

  • As you are grabbed secure the hand with your left hand while you step back with your left foot.
  • Execute an upward block at the same time to break and disable that arm.
  • Clear that arm with an inward block and immediately deliver a right-hand sword to the throat.
  • Cover out.


  • Step back when you do your pin check, if you don’t you will be exposed for any attack.
  • Stepping back will stretch his left arm and will expose him to you.
