Sun & Moon - Application 1
Here is our first introductory bunkai for this movement. It incorporates steps 1 and 2 as shown on Tuesday.
In photo 1 the attacker has grabbed my right wrist/forearm with overwhelming strength. That may be with one hand for a very strong attacker, or perhaps a less strong attacker using both hands. In the photo I've grabbed my right hand with my left, to help pull it back towards me, though this should only be necessary against a very strong attacker.
In photo 2 I've pulled my right hand back to my left hip, either by itself or using my left hand to help pull. At the same time I slide back and to the left to draw the attacker off-balance and generate momentum in the direction I'm moving.
In photo 3 I've completed the arm movement, bringing both arms up to my centreline. The right arm performs a classic outward block movement, while the left hand simply presses on it to generate extra power. At the same I reverse my foot movement, sliding straight towards the attacker. Its key here to keep the foot movement quite small. Only in this way can we change direction quickly enough to ensure that our momentum is coming back to meet the attacker's while they are still travelling forwards (bending their arm in the process). This application is a useful learning tool as it gives the student a clear opportunity to feel how both hands work together to overcome the attacker's strength.
Following photo 3 there are various possible options for countering. Whichever you choose, its vital to ensure that the opponent isn't allowed an opportunity to further bend their right arm and move forwards in order to strike with their elbow.
Finally, if the attacker is only grabbling with one hand its important to keep an eye on their other hand. There's no point in dealing with the wrist grab if the attacker is hitting you at the same time.
