1. Fighting Position: Begin by placing your feet in a staggered stance, slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Your leading foot should be pointing forwards, your rear foot should run close to perpendicular to your lead foot, your knees should be slightly bent, and your torso should be perpendicular to your target
2. Bring your fists up so that your leading hand is about six inches in front of your chin, your rear hand is 2-3 inches from your rear cheek, and your elbows are tucked in next to your ribs
3. Your chin should be slightly tucked and your eyes should look directly over your lead fist, into the eyes of your target. You are ready for action
4. Extend your leading fist forward by straightening at the elbow while rotating your fist to a palm down position on contact
5. Bring your leading fist back to fighting position before rotating your hips forward as you extend your rear fist forward by once again straightening at the elbow and rotating the fist to a palm-down position, your rear foot should twist at the toes and point towards your target
6. Immediately retract your rear fist, and twist your body back to the fighting position
