Response to Semantics in Obscure Wing
We have the attacker starting much closer. We do not have the attacker pulling in.
During the attack, one of the determining factors for Obscure Wing ... can I feel the attackers forearm on my back? If I can, I know the attacker is close. I can then use an short range weapon (e.g. the elbow).
If the attacker were further away...
if I have to step into the attack at 4:30 ...
if I could not feel his forearm on my back ...
I would be thinking about a different technique; Obscure Sword, Sword and Hammer, or maybe Falcons of Force.
Yes ... we do step out with our right to 3:00 o'clock while striking to 6 with a rear elbow. It is an interesting combination of marriage of gravity with the strike you point out.
