How to do Twist of Fate Self Defense Technique

Twist of Fate

Twist of fate is a self-defense technique found in the blue belt rank of Ed Parker’s American Kenpo, this technique is against a Front two hand push.¬†Blue belt is where you work to develop fluidity.

Twist of Fate Step by Step:

  • As you are being pushed step back with your right foot while your hands block the push just like on “Parting Wings”.
  • Grab both wrists and immediately kick the groin without letting go of the wrists, a right knife-edge kick is also a possibility which will feed the next move.
  • Take his left arm under his right arm-twisting them.
  • Go along with his right arm till you end behind him, make sure you keep turning without letting go of the wrists.
  • Bring your left knee behind his back and release him.
  • Cover out.

Twist Of Fate. Instructed by Casa De Kenpo which includes Professors Cliff Seminerio and Juan Serrano.


  • Right after you block grab both wrists, and don’t let them go.
