Defanging a Snake

Perhaps I can introduce an old term, that of defanging a snake. Of course this is my term.

I first saw Sherman Harill do this to show a Shorin Ryu black belt why he didn’t engage in kumite. Although it was a different technique it worked the same way. He struck into the arm so hard that it became numbed and useless.

I have observerd John Kerker do the same many times in different ways.
Just Isshinryu and decades of makiwara training.
