Danshi (Bouncing Finger)


This technique means to strike with a bouncing finger (thumb). What is important is that after you have struck with the left fist, you strike down from above into Kimon with a turning motion of the wrist.

Both clasp both hands in Tenryaku Uchu Gassho and bow to each other. Then, both you and the Uke stand in Ichimonji no Kamae.

The Uke grabs your lapel with his left hand. Cover with the right hand. Remove the hand as in"Omote Gyaku". The Uke lunges forward with the left leg and punches to Men with the right fist.

Receive the punch with the left forearm while stepping back with the right foot. As a rebound from this movement, strike to Kimon with Boshi Ken with a downward motion.

Simultaneously grab the hand in Omote Gyaku and kick to Suigetsu with the right foot. Drop the foot and sink the body to apply the Omote Gyaku thus dropping the Uke straight down in front of you.

Stamp to Wakitsubo with your left heel to finish. Zanshin.
