Video of Tai ken, hitting the opponent with the whole body
Tai ken (טאי קן) is the name of hitting an opponent using the whole body as a weapon. The areas of the body hitting the opponent in this technique are numerous, but the shoulder or chest are usually used. The Tai ken is an important stage in learning an agressive attack and is sometimes used in combination with closing the distance and grappling.
