Yama Tzuki

Mountain Punch. A wide U-shaped double punch done at upper and lower levels, as it kata Bassai Dai. This is different from Awase Tzuki, in that the top arm is bent at the elbow and the bicep is beside the head, allowing the Jodan punch to come straight forward. The torso may be twisted to allow this to happen, and the Jodan punch to actually be above the attacker's head height.
