Head butt, a very effective but seldom talked about technique.
We tend to subconsciously ignore or deny that "sort of techniques" because of the negative "dirty fighting" connotation, but come on guys, the older you get, the dirtier or nastier you must. They got the brawn and the chicks, we got the cunningness, right? What is it they say about "cunning and deceit will overcome youth and skills"?
It is a great technique. Especially effective when your hands are occupied whether standing or on the ground. Must be careful on how to use it though. Butting his nose is great, but butting his forehead with your forehead would be a literal head on collision.
Some of you might know that I encourage alternative interpretation of kata movements to supplement our normal practices. I made a new video called: "Seisan Head Butt & Knee Butt". Yes, another one of my out of the box interpretation of kata movements. I hope it doesn't get some of the less progressive old timers wound up, you know, those who think that anything that did not come from Okinawa or not taught by their Okinawan teacher is wrong, you know those guys---
