Grappling skills and throws
- Backward flip with foot to stomach. As your assailant attacks you, reach over his arms and grasp his clothing firmly. Place your foot in his stomach as he continues with his forward motion. Fall back, kicking the assailant overhead where he drops to the deck on his back. You may retain the clothing grip for a strangle hold and control him for further attacks.
- Chancery against low frontal attack. As your adversary comes to you, ward him off with a stiff arm to the head and throw one arm under his shoulder. Place your other arm across the side of his face and lock his head on the inside of your opposite elbow. Pressure upward will break the neck. A knee lift to the solar plexus may be used with a throw to the deck for further counterattack.
- Arm drag. As your opponent rushes, reach straight over and grab your opponent’s wrist. and at the same time secure the upper arm on the underside with your other hand. Simultaneously throw a foot across the assailant’s instep or shin. Then pull him back to fall over your leg or hip. Carry out further counterattacks from the rear.
- Leg pick Up. As your opponent rushes you, knock his arm out to the side, step in with one knee to the deck, and grasp him firmly above the knees. With your shoulder, hit him in the stomach to raise him off the deck. Place one hand in his back, keeping the other round his legs, and drop him to the deck on his head or neck. Conclude with knee drop, kick to ribs or any other attack.
