Grappling

 

Technique:  Armbar

  Drill: The attacker executes cross grab to the wrist. The defender counters with a low inside roll followed immediately by an outside roll. Simultaneously defender steps forward with trailing leg, as trailing knife‑hand rises to strike attacker’s lead elbow in a rising and rolling fashion. Drawing away from the attacker with the lead hand, and rolling in a high arc with the trailing hand, the defender’s trailing foot steps through and plants, just as the attacker’s now‑locked arm is pressed to the defender’s knee.

 

Technique:  Standard Wrist Throw

  Drill: The attacker executes a straight punch or grab. The defender responds with an Outside Palm block catching the wrist and turning the hand over. Pressure is applied to the back of the hand as the defender steps forward with his trailing foot and pivots 90 degrees on the ball of the lead foot. The throw is executed by applying further pressure to the back of the attackers’ hand at a 45 degree oblique angle. The partner may either sit down with this technique or may choose to execute an air-roll.

 

Technique:  Wrist Lock

  Drill: The attacker applies straight-hand wrist grab. The defender responds with outward wrist roll of lead hand to palm-down position with a strong flex. Simultaneously the defenders’ trailing hand crosses to the attackers’ lead hand, covering the attackers’ lead hand from above. Reversing his lead hand with an outside roll, the defender now executes an inside roll, grasping the attackers’ lead hand. In this configuration each of the defenders’ hands grasps a lateral edge of the attackers’ hand flexing the palm towards the attackers’ face, fingers pointed upwards. Pressure on the back of the attackers’ hand is combined with a full step exiting the attackers’ centerline to the defenders’ rear, inducing the attacker to bow forwards to relieve tension and discomfort.

 

Technique:  Inner Four-Directions Projection

  Drill: The attacker executes a cross-hand wrist grab. The defender responds with inward wrist roll with the lead hand and a firm draw of attackers’ wrist toward defenders’ lead hip. Focus is on the index finger knuckle of defenders’ the lead hand, and the "KI-out" of the thumb down and away.  The defenders’ trailing foot, with a full step, enters attackers’ centerline at 45 degree angle, as the trailing hand locates at attackers’ lead wrist with inner index knuckle bearing firmly on the radius bone. The defender simultaneously snaps their hips 180 degrees to face the opposite direction while snapping the attackers’ wrist sharply over his head and downward. The index finger of defenders’ the lead hand should point to the final destination of the attacker, typically at the knee on defenders’ lead foot, though an additional step of trailing foot can be added to extend the projection to a further point.

 

Technique:  Forward Wrist Throw

  Drill: The attacker executes cross-arm wrist grab. The defender exerts a slight pull downward immediately followed by an outward wrist roll with defender seizing the attackers’ lead wrist and feeding to the trailing hand which seizes the back of the attackers’ hand. The defender exits the attackers’ centerline with the trailing foot resulting in the attackers’ elbow rising towards the ceiling. Stepping under the attackers’ arm with the lead foot, the defender pivots 180 degrees, but maintains the forearms’ vertical position. The attacker and defender are now hip to hip, facing the same direction with the attackers’ arm in the “double flex” position, vertical in front of his shoulder, his and palm facing forward. Stepping forward with the trailing foot, the defender "casts” the attacker forward into a forward roll.

 

Technique:  Elbow Wrist Throw

  Drill: The attacker executes a straight grab to the lapel. The defender executes a cover with the trailing hand and hooks the attackers’ elbow with the lead index finger. Having accomplished a basic S-arm configuration, the defender steps two shoulder-widths behind the trailing leg with their lead leg as they torque the wrist and draw on the attackers’ elbow. The drag is accomplished as the defenders’ hips unwind. Drawing on the elbow and pressing on the back of the attackers’ hand, the attacker is taken to the floor.

 

Technique:  Hammerlock

  Drill: The attacker executes a straight grab to the defenders’ wrist. The defender responds with a “C-out” with the lead hand. As the defenders’ trailing leg steps forward, exiting the attackers’ centerline, the defenders’ trailing hand reaches for the cleft of the attackers’ lead arm and digging deeply into the pressure point, collapsing the arm. Stepping under the attackers’ arm, the defender pivots 180 degrees, allowing the attackers’ lead wrist from the webbing of the defenders’ hand and slip up the defenders’ arm. This technique may also include a takedown by utilizing centrifugal force and a step back draws the attacker to the floor in a tight spiral.

 

Technique:   Single Leg Sweep

  Drill: The attacker applies straight wrist grab. The defender responds with a low outside wrist roll with the lead hand, grasping the attackers lead wrist.   Simultaneously the The defender enters the attacker’s centerline with trailing foot.  As the defenders’ trailing foot plants, his leading foot, by substitution sweeps the attackers lead foot as the lead wrist is drawn out and down. The technique is completed as the attacker is taken to the mat in front of the defender. A typical follow-up might be a knee-drop to the chest or a floor-pin.

 

Technique:  Hip Throw

  Drill: The attacker applies a cross-wrist grab. The defender responds with a low inside wrist roll  and a firm draw on the attackers’ arm. Simultaneously the defender enters the attackers’  centerline with trailing foot, continues to draw firmly on attackers’ lead arm and slips the  trailing arm in an arc across  the attackers’ shoulder blades. As the defenders’ trailing foot plants inside  the attackers’ trailing instep, the defenders’ trailing hand inserts in  the attackers’ armpit and the defenders’ lead hip impacts the attackers’ groin. The attacker is hefted across the defenders’ hips and thrown to the  floor.

 

Technique:  Shoulder Throw

  Drill: The attacker executes a cross- wrist grab. The defender responds with a low slight inside wrist roll with the lead hand. Simultaneously the defender cross-steps in front of leading foot, exiting the attacker’s centerline, the defender’s trailing arm snaps in sharply into the attacker’s armpit. As the defender seizes the attacker’s upper arm, his hips pivot 180 degrees. Flexing sharply at the hips, the defender throws his partner to the mat.
