    His #2) above, Mr. Spock’s Vulcan Salutation, I have in my Old Notes as being called a “Snake Tooth”. Split the 2 middle fingers, 2 fingers to each side, fingers slightly bent, palm down, strike to the throat, to either side of the windpipe.
    I have a rapid fire 6 punch one, all to the throat and face. I’ll have to look for it.
    What is a “windmill block”?
    What is a “windmill kick”???
    You guys have alot of different “terminology” than I do, I think.
    From his #9) A very simple thing to do, is …a) Lt knifehand block inside attacker’s Rt punch, together with a Simultaneous Rt Thrust Punch to the Solars… b) then either wrap your Lt arm around his Rt arm or just grab at his Rt shoulder with your Lt hand… c) then, right off of the Rt Thrust punch to the Solars, do a Rt Rising Elbow, right up under his chin…..d) the result will most probably be ….Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!

    we call it a snakes tooth also – This is from Sensei Fritz’s private collection and his notes are based on helping him remember things. His windmill kick is also known as a wheel kick which is basically spinning your bods and just doing a dead leg crescent with full body momentum behind it. A windmill block is also known in some schools and a circular hands block. think person is doing a straight right punch – left inward palm block followed be an immediate outward circular knifehand block with right hand. As for #9 his description does not do it justice. the point is that you are slightly behind the person when you deliver the right elbow and you are still holding on to the persons attacking hand as you pull it over your body. This way when you grab there pant leg you are using the push – pull theory as you pull there arm down and lift there leg up. We only do this tech. if we tell our Uke. It is quick and if your not ready you will easily get dumped on your neck with your feet still in the air.
