I am still finding questions from 6 years ago. Please remember, I just turned a computer on 4 months ago. Here is a question by Maxwell Ainley from England. He asks about double thrusts and why more isn't brought up about them. That is a good observation Max. The opening of sanchin kata contains this powerful double arm thrust. I use it every day . If done daily, it will show you where the power base is. You will begin to feel it. It is a great infighting strike. It comes out of nowhere and hits with a hugh bang. Check it out on my web site ------www.artrabesauechiryu.com --------click on the striking section of the uechi ryu wheel. Then click on the "striking drills sanchin opening" -----This drill helps you to be able to explode from a stationary position. One of my favorites. Hope this helps. ---------Happy Trails --------- Art Rabesa

Great move. We also find it in seisan and we put it to work in the Bunkai app. as a general concept of use.

You're right Van, it is a great move. If this double arm thrust is carefully looked at, the power base can be discovered. It uses all the large muscle groups to propel the arms. While stationary, this strike really packs an explosion. It hits even harder when moving in. I use it as my secret power drill. It gives me the feeling I want in my training. I quess it is no longer a secret. I've been doing this double arm drill for many years. If someone is looking for power in their strikes, this is the drill that will give it to them. Thanks Van --------- Art

Just completed 100 double arm thrusts this morning. Man, that really gets the blood pumping. I'm telling you! Try this as a daily drill. It will put a lot of pop in your strikes. This builds the power base. ------Happy Trails ------Art

Sorry I missed this topic Art .yes I am with you on this .

I too make a lot of use of this move ,basically in our Uechi practice we will favor certain aspects ,I tend to favor this as a power drill .

Basically Art here in the UK ,I think it was seen as a part of Sanchin ,but never drilled like you do ,it always seemed a shame to me ,but anyway that is another story .
If I am lucky and I get a student who wants what I offer ,I always start then on the spear hands ,obviously as we develop power it's then transferable .

Hi Art,

In addition to the move you like to practice, one of my favorites for power development is the Wauke thrust as per sensei Nakamatsu here...

....because as you know I use the torque and compression method in my power strikes.

Sensei Nakamatsu has developed some of the strongest Uechi-Ka to be found anywhere.

Thanks for your insight guys. I simply like the double thrust strike as a drill, to get my power base set. There is a feeling of power that sneaks in as you keep thrusting. Tough to explain it, but its there. I then take that feeling and carry it into everything else I do. Really NEED it when you are in the kitchen. ------Happy Trails------Art
