The Snap Punch to the Nose – called Ago Uchi in some systems, and a ‘Raitoningu’ strike in others - is a lightning fast attack that generates ‘nerve noise’ to cloud the mind and open a ‘window’ for more powerful attacks.

...A MILD STUN BLOW - THE AGO UCHI OR SNAP PUNCH TO THE NOSE...

EXECUTING THE AGO UCHI

Ninja Scroll Kanji Ninja Scroll Kanji

First form a fist. The fist is closed tightly with the thumb over the four fingers. DO NOT enclose the thumb in the fingers. Strike with the two large knuckles only as these are the least susceptible to damage, and also because it magnifies the power of the strike by concentrating it into a smaller area.

This is the simplest of all martial arts moves, the basic snap punch to the nose. It is a swift movement – you need to concentrate on speed, and reasonable – not excessive – power. Above all, do not snap the elbow when you do this strike, as you might damage the elbow.

STRIKING TO A NERVE NEXUS

The nose is a powerful nexus of nerves, and your aim in using this move is to mash those nerves and send a flux of pain to the brain that will momentarily cloud it and slow its functioning. In other words, this is a mild stun blow. More powerful stun blows will be taught to you in time, but for now, this will serve.

AN OPENING MOVE

The ago uchi or snap punch to the nose is NOT a finishing blow – it is an OPENING move. You MUST follow it up with other, more powerful blows that will take out your opponent. Remember this, my students.

Another thing to remember is that the ago uchi does not always stun a highly experienced fighter. I have seen a highly experienced fighter take an ago uchi, and fight on even in the stun, destroying his opponent. But this is relatively rare. Usually two or three lightning fast ago uchis, followed by a powerful roundhouse or mawashi strike or kick, should put your opponent down.

What is effective Combat?

Ninja Yawara Kongou Vajra

What is effective combat?
It is to know a multitude of moves?

No.

Rather, it is, knowing a few moves well,
To use them with strategy,
To the best effect.

This is effective combat.
