Hi guys.

This week’s technical review is about release from double shirt hand grab. Now it’s very, very clear that I don’t hit him first of all. So I can do this in different manners, I can do inside defenses, outside defenses, counter attacks, all this stuff maybe suitable for us, but please remember that sometimes we call it family, school, or work. Somebody grabs you by surprise and at this moment you feel that the situation is more dangerous, hit me, if it’s dangerous of course I should prevent him from hitting. I should maybe do preemptive attacks I feel that he wants to headbutt me I should do something, which would be very reasonable against him. I’m most surprised even if first headbutt him this is all clear. Hopefully, you saw the basics in the clip of Max Krav Maga, and now that we try to clear some mistakes here. So, the prevention is one, dealing with dangerous grab is two, and now what happens if it’s not dangerous grab. Meaning I did something like this as protection, and I feel like this is not dangerous.

What to do now?

Okay, now you have seen this. Let’s talk about the proper, the common mistakes, etc. Okay, so what’s happening is like this. One hand I clamp, I grab from the outside. With the other hand after I remove his fist a little bit from my body, from my chest area I remove his fist. I put my palm, heel of the hand, palm heel on the front of his palm. So, this area of the fist, yes, this area of the fist. And now I’m holding, but I’m not holding him with my hands in I’m holding his fist with my body. So first of all, I move back. Now I make this clamp, and with the back hand very tight, very close to my own body, pressing his fist against my other hand. Pressure. Now with my pelvis, legs up above the power I will turn. I also return half a step. My knees are a little be tight close together, so I’m protecting my groin area. Most of the time the elbow, because I’m turning his elbow will be bent. Which is very good for me.

Now in this case your key move is that in the three joints wrist, elbow, and shoulder it will be 90 degrees. Now my lock is the strongest, and I bend towards his pelvis area. Now I just push him away, that’s it. The technique should be done fast. That’s it, and immediately you are out of the danger area, and continue what I talked to you, remember it’s the solid solution. Talking say, “Back off, don’t put your hand on me.” Will be simple comments, simple commands. Also, use assault solutions when there other people around. You can say, “Do you see what you are doing to me?” You know, Gather witnesses, gather people who press him not to do anything.

Common mistakes, not grabbing well especially with the left hand, not pressing, and moving back with the other. Not to do this, we are moving backward, and then forward. That’s the idea. Change them, now if his finger will be in front of my chest it may slide. We put the finger joint, of the index finger. We put it on the hollow between the collar bones. And now we can moves. If he’s straight bending his arm, the true is more with training than in reality, but still. Then the lock will be not so strong. Not the strongest I can do. So, one old trick is this to do with you if you are strong enough to do this. This would be lock, or we can bend together more. We can then and bend the elbow with your hand, you can bend the elbow with your elbow.

In some cases, we feel that after grabbing the person we cannot return well with the lock. That he’s too powerful for me. Then we do have a situation showed you the other site where you will be able to see. From here it’s so powerful … what happened here is, I turned from here I kick, and then I use my leg like an anchor to turn. I kick and then I turn. What happens is his elbow will turn. His body will turn, because I’m going to be double strong compared to the previous time. So in this case what may happen is that I will be able to do the lock like before, or I’ll turn a little more and do a lock from the elbow. Just basic pressure on the elbow with my palm heel. Be careful with this one so you don’t hurt your partner. Learn slowly how to do this.

Again, will be good just to train from here against a partner, feel a bit more stable in your stance. But from here I kick by his side and then I turn. Don’t forget. I kick by his side and then I turn myself. Let’s do it from this angle you’ll see. That it’s, then turn so I kick while my left pelvis is forward, my hip is forward, and kick with my back leg. Yes, and then it’s an anchor. Then after the kick I turn slowly. That is the essence of it. Also, we can grab each other’s shoulder and from here press each other. So, you press me, I press you. Like this will feel how this action is efficient and contracting the core muscles especially the gluts. So from here he stops me with his pressure, I stop myself with my pressure on his body, and here I’m turning. It looks very good from the angle from the side kick. That’s the idea.

So together these things … that’s the idea about slipping the lock after the turn. Thank you for your suffering.
