This is not a dojo. I train to end your enemy. Fast. This particular technique works for many types of attack - from a wrist grab to a punch. Once you bend your enemy's elbow 270 degrees out of normal design parameters, grab a weapon - yours or his, and kill him.

This is a technique to free your hand when an enemy executes a same-side grab.
While I teach it from a static grab in the Fight to your Weapon class, this is a dynamic technique. As you train you must evolve to the point that as your enemy reaches for the grab, you are already moving through the technique, so he never gets a firm grip. You end up facing the same direction as your enemy - you are off the line of attack, your hand is free, and with a simple step or twist, you can get to his back.
Learn it. Own it.
If you can't get your hands free, you will die.

If you can't get your hands free from an enemy, you can't do much at all. You can't block an incoming blow. You can't draw your weapons. You can't stop him from drawing his weapons.
If you can't get your hands free, you will die. He owns you.
These two techniques will work EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
It doesn't matter how big or small you may be. It doesn't matter if you are standing or sitting. It doesn't matter if you are an 80 pound girl or a 300 pound muscleman. By the end of every CQB class, every single one of my fellow Patriots can get his hands free. It is a sine qua non. Everything depends on your ability to free your hands.

Avoiding a punch is one of the fundamental skills for killing the enemy. You may begin avoiding punches very early in your training, but it is a skill that will continue to evolve as long as you train. There is no final exam, you will never be finished refining your technique.

Armbar - When an enemy is so foolish as to grab your wrist, take his arm home with you and mount it over your fireplace. In the video I apply just enough pressure that HK raises to her toes to escape the pain.
In a fight, you bend that arm all the way to your belt buckle, fast...
