http://www.blackbeltmag.com?video=1 With more than 40 years of experience in a range of Asian fighting styles, Leon Wright is a 10th-degree black belt in and the founder of souseiki ryu sekkinsen shigaisen, an art that is formally recognized in Okinawa and Japan, as well as the United States.
In the above video depicting self-defense moves from Leon Wright's extensive training in a variety of styles — including MCMAP techniques — the Black Belt Hall of Fame member shows you, the viewer, how to defend yourself against a roundhouse punch.
In the video, Leon Wright assumes the ready posture in front of his opponent. When the opponent throws a roundhouse punch (or, as Leon Wright calls it, a "haymaker"), the MCMAP instructor executes a high elbow block, then steps into the opponent's personal space to deliver an elbow strike to the jaw.

Next up in his sequence of self-defense moves is the application of pressure to the knee to get the opponent off-balance. The MCMAP and karate expert then overhooks the man's left arm just above the triceps before sweeping the leg in question. Still holding the opponent's arm, Leon Wright executes a standing armbar while drilling his knee into the opponent's ribs.
If this sequence of self-defense moves has not finished the attacker, the MCMAP instructor has a couple of finishing moves at his disposal. If he's armed, the MCMAP techniques expert can put a knife to the attacker's throat. If empty-handed, he can apply choke pressure or fire a straight punch to the opponent's face.
Leon Wright was inducted into the Black Belt Hall of Fame as its 2010 Self-Defense Instructor of the Year. To learn more about this martial artist, visit http:/www.blackbeltmag.com/leon
