Basic Self Defense Moves : How to Escape From a Kung Fu Cross Wrist Grab
Hi my name is Dan Schmidt from the Chinese
Martial Arts Center and for expertvillage.com. In this clip we are going to be showing you
self defense against the cross wrist grab. Here it goes like this. Someone ever grabs
your wrist across all you have to do is take your opposite hand. Place it firmly on top
of there hand it has to be firm. You can’t have it loose otherwise it won’t work. So
grab firmly okay use your body twist this hand so that the side off your palm is right
here in between the wrist bone and there hand this way. Okay now from here keep your elbows
in close, you press straight down as you step in. this causes a break in the wrist and the
forearm. So once again in a faster pace it looks like this. So he grabs, come in, straight
down. Now what is very important to do is don’t raise there hand high otherwise it doesn’t
work. So now I’m opening for more attack punch, kick, anything. So keep it low. Pick up no
higher then your own chest. Okay wrap just like this make sure that this hand is tight
and very forcedly use your body weight bend the hips, use your chest, bend in, and down.
See how the forearm twist this causes a break very easily. So one more time he grabs firmly,
twist, step in, and down. That is self defense against the cross wrist grab.
