Attack Strategy Using the Feet. Stamp on the opponents arch. Deliver a sharp blow to the shin or groin. The knee is also a weapon of counter attack for striking into the groin, to the face when opponent is bent over, or into the solar plexus. (Notice that no kicks are mentioned.)
Basic Hand Holds And Leverages. Basic hand holds and leverages are designed to take greatest advantage of leverage on joints and bones.
- Wrist Lock. Holding the opponent's wrist in both hands, the thumbs exert pressure on the back of the hands. This forces the wrist joint backward and upward at the same time.
- Reverse Wrist Lock. The opponents hand is twisted inward. As the elbow rises, additional leverage is applied at the elbow. Any resistance on the part of the opponent only increases the pain and the effectiveness of the hold. Twisting the hand inward imposes terrific leverage on the wrist. Pressure against the wrist also locks the elbow.
- Hammer Lock. With additional downward pressure for forcing the wrist joint.
- Basic Head Lock. One arm is placed around the opponent's neck and locked onto the other arm. The other hand is used to control the opponents head. Any attempt to escape only tightens the hold.
- Back Leverage. With one hand holding the opponent's belt, the other hand applies pressure to the throat. As an alternative, use one arm around the waist and exert leverage at the chin.
