Open hand to the neck

This technique can only be used against the neck because it's a open hand attack`with the side of your hand.  To start you first bring your open hand up to the side of your shoulder then bring palm down while bringing hand sideways and your hand should be face down just before striking the neck.  Imagine someone next to you sitting and they throw a punch and you block it with your horizontal forearm that's next to the side of your head then perform the technique.

Another way to deliver a open hand strike to the neck is to have your flat hand facing palm up on the way to your target.

Head Strike Defense

The defense is done by leaning your upper body backwards while sliding your rear foot back so you will not fall.  You perform this with speed bringing both your upper body and rear foot back at the same time.  This is done when the target is your head.  You should also try this by taking a quick step or two backwards.

A Chance to Exercise

Walking: Whenever your in a building and you have some time take the stairs instead of the elevator.  When you get to a place by vehicle park somewhere that will allow you to have close to a minute walk.

Balance: Whenever your at home and your doing something like using the mirror, putting on close or washing something stand on one foot while doing that.

Awareness: If your at home with nothing to do and you don't want to exercise to hard practice countering techniques from an imaginary attacker.  You must do this while sitting, standing or lying down.

Sidestep Counter-attack 2

This counter comes against the same forward attack the rear-right-jab you may say, i've done this already but one technique can have many defenses against it.  Once again you sidestep to the left with left foot taking a small step then the right follows immediately with a quick slide.  After doing this you deliver a rear-hook punch to the jaw then use left leg and deliver a toe-kick to groin.
