Dragontail Kick

The spinning-back leg sweep is one of the simplest and most effective of any in the martial arts. it illustrates the angle method, since the Ninja drops out of sight before taking down the enemy. From the double-palm push, drop to all fours and extend the left leg. Pivot on the right knee, using the hands for balance, and swing the left leg 180 degrees to the rear. Used properly, this leg sweep knocks the enemy's legs out from under him.

Following the Dragon-Tail kick, you are now facing in the opposite direction from where you started, in a low kneeling stance. While this limits the angles from which the enemy can strike you, it also gives him the advantage of higher ground. Using the blinding method, the Ninja scoops a handful of sand in each fist as the enemy approaches.

Dropping low to avoid any attack by the advancing enemy, the Ninja grabs two fists-full of sand as his weapon. Rising quickly, he will use an underhanded toss to throw the missiles into the enemy's face. With very little practice this can be an incredibly effective self-defense technique for even the most passive student. There is hardly a man alive that can block a handful of sand. Even if he tries, his attention is diverted from the assault long enough to permit the prudent Ninja to flee.
