Defense against club
In defense against clubs, cross the arms and step in to meet the blow. This close defense affords the greatest certainty of meeting and arresting the assailant’s arm. Turn your body, grasp his arm at the forearm and shoulder, and follow through with a flying mare. To execute a flying mare, footwork is very important. On the deck, go into an elbow lock, breaking the arm at the elbow, or attack with counterattacks using the knees, feet, or hands.
