Notes on Abaniko Corto

He wanted the notes so he could distribute them publicly, from what I understood. Not sure if he ever did, but I thought I'd share them (perhaps again) now. I'm posting them here in a separate message. The first group addresses forehand strikes and the other addresses backhand strikes.

========================== from the 5/2/97 seminar
(entered by Tye Botting)


Versus Strike to Left Side of Head (e.g. #1 strike)
==================================
Basic: sweep block, quick pivot to abaniko to cut opponent's head/neck
(can also pivot to abaniko to cut/slash opponent's weapon arm!)


Technique #1: after the basic abaniko, continue on through to slash
their body while controlling the weapon arm with your
forearm/punyo, then trap their cane against your
forearm by grabbing their forearm, handshake fashion.
- snake your cane around to cane wrist lock
- push/pull to execute a cane-forearm leverage disarm
(which can be followed by a #3 strike to ribs/
underarm, straight into a cane-bicep throw)
(or, can be followed by coming under their arm
with your punyo to go to a punyo single lock)
(or, can be followed by snaking your cane under
their arm to put your blade against their throat
and pulling back to do a cane-throat takedown)


Technique #2: after the abaniko, just weave your cane around theirs
until both canes are vertical (yours up, theirs down).
- grab their cane to do weaving disarm w/ followup
strike while controlling their arm with their cane
- grab their weapon hand and inject to cane centerlock
- grab both canes and squeeze to crush their thumb
(can follow up by releasing with your weapon hand
and striking or throwing)


Technique #3: after the abaniko, snake your punyo over their wrist
and guide them into a cane armbar.
- guide their arm down and through to go to cane
compress elbow lock
(can follow up with a cane mobility throw using
your punyo, followed by any kind of pin)
(or, can inject with left forearm to single lock)
- grab their stick and snake it under their arm to
execute a cane single lock, pulling down on their
cane with your punyo (can follow with mobility
throw also)


Technique #4: after the basic abaniko, continue on through to slash
their body as in Technique #1, but then go to an
underhand punyo hook pull to your body (either using
other hand to do a leverage disarm or not).
- single arm backwards throw using your weapon wrist
- enter in to diving throw





Versus Strike to Right Side of Head (e.g. #2 strike)
===================================
Basic: sweep block, quick pivot to abaniko to cut opponent's head/neck
(can also pivot to abaniko to cut/slash opponent's weapon arm!)


Technique #1: after the abaniko, continue on through to strike
their knee while controlling their weapon arm with
your forearm/punyo straight into a body leverage
disarm (or lock) after grabbing their cane or
controlling their cane against your body.
- palm strike to their head
- enter in to diving throw


Technique #2: after the abaniko, continue on through to strike their
knee as in Technique #1.
- grab their cane and hit-trap their punch (or grab)
while pulling loose your cane, then #1 or #12 strike
(can follow up by continuing on down and behind
their upper arm with their cane to do a cane single
lock, adding pressure by grabbing the tip with your
punyo)


Technique #3: after the abaniko, continue on through to strike their
knee as in Technique #1.
- snake your cane around their wrist to do a cane-
forearm takedown or cane outside wrist throw
- snake your cane around to cane wrist lock upwards
- push their arm up to intercept if they punch, then
snake your cane around both arms and grab it then
inject downward, motorcycle fashion (or inject
sideways to cane outside wrist throw)


Technique #4: after the abaniko, continue on through to strike
their knee as in technique #1, then go straight
to a thrust/tusok to their body (or groin).
- insert cane between the legs, step on their foot
(with your right foot), and execute a cane takedown
to their knee
[can follow this up by changing to hold your stick
with your left hand and grabbing their wrist with
your right hand to execute a cane armbar (end of
your cane against their body, middle against their
elbow), then inject with knee to leverage disarm,
then single arm backwards throw using wrist]


KEEP IN MIND THAT EACH OF THESE CAN BE CONVERTED TO WORK AGAINST AN
ATTACK FROM THE OTHER SIDE
