Flashing to the right and returning fire with a right-handed punch (Figure 51)
When the opponent punches me in the head with a straight left punch, I dodge to the right at the same time. The upper body is slightly leaned forward to the right, allowing the opponent to punch empty. When dodging, the center of gravity of the body should be shifted to the right foot, and the dodging action should be quick and decisive. The advantage of dodging to the right is that it can be combined with a straight left punch to meet the opponent’s head or abdomen, while also returning with a right-handed punch.
Slap your right hand to the left and return fire with your left hand (Figure 52)
When an opponent strikes me in the head with a straight left fist, I immediately open my right fist and slap the lower middle part of the outside of his wrist to the lower left, the center of gravity slightly shifts to the right foot, and the upper body turns slightly to the left. Then fight back arbitrarily with your left fist.
Note that defenders should slap after their opponent has punched two-thirds of the distance. When the right hand is tapped, do not move far from the chin, and the slap action should be sudden and fast.
Flashing back right (left) straight punch back head (Figure 53)
When the opponent punches me in the head with a straight left punch, quickly shift the center of gravity to the back foot while leaning back with the upper body, then immediately move the center of gravity of the body to the front foot while hitting the head with a right (left) straight punch.
Note: (1) When flashing backwards, determine whether to move backwards or not according to the distance of the opponent’s hit.
(2) After flashing backwards, you must seize the opportunity to fight back with a straight fist. After the first successful punch of the return fire, it is necessary to quickly punch in succession, without giving the opponent a chance to return fire.
