Move Targets: Shoulders and Core


Step-by-Step

Step 1: With this hit, you want to come from below. Start in your fighting stance with legs slightly bent and fists by your face.

Step 2: Take the hitting arm behind you so the elbow points straight back and the fist drops to the hip. Take the same-side leg and rotate inward to help boost your momentum for the upward hit. The other arm comes across the face for double-duty protection.

Step 3: Bring the fist straight up like you're punching the opponent under the chin. Use the rotation of your lower body for help and crunch the abs between steps two and three.
