About 2 weeks ago I was training with somebody who doesn't train Kenpo (he studies other Martial Arts like Jeet Kune Do, Jiu-Jitsu and Eskrima) and he asked me what kind of solution we have in Kenpo against a push (a sudden push). I came up with Parting Wings.
After teaching him this technique he asked me why we give a Handsword to the ribs instead of immediately giving a Handsword or Heel Palm to the head to knock the attacker out. This would end the fight faster and the sooner a fight ends, the better it is.
I couldn't give him an answer to that question and that bothered me.
I was wondering if someone could tell me why Mr Parker designed Parting Wing with a shot to the ribs not with an immediate shot to the head. Why prefering a "ribshot" over a "headshot"? What is the logic that I am not seeing here?
Looking forward towards your reactions!!
Thanks in advance.
