Returning The Storm Step by Step

  • As the attacker steps through with a right roundhouse club attack and then come back with the same weapon, you step to your left covering up, and do a left step through as you block the upcoming attack.
  • Grab the wrist and apply pressure to the elbow, immediately do a back step with your right foot and drag him down controlling his height.
  • Deliver a right front leg to any important available target and step out.


  • Make sure you get away from the first swing, but not too far so you are able to catch him coming with the second swing.
