Here is another short sequence from my Chinese New Year Gojushiho demonstration. Here, I'm looking at a possible wrist-release application for the chicken beak technique, as performed in the Matsubayashi version of the kata. I was never too fond of the using that technique to block kicks (would probably break the fingers or damage the wrist) or to strike joints or the bicep or soft spot behind the collar bone (though I suppose those could work if you developed enough finger strength, but in a real confrontation, targeting such small areas with the finger tips seems unlikely with an adrenalin dump...). I've found the circular motion and clinching the fingers to be an effective way to release a wrist grab. Anyway, it's nothing fancy, but I think it's practical. Any other views on how to apply this technique would be much appreciated.
