Self-defense 1 (right hand grabbing right wrist)

When grabbed by hand from inside.

Taking the point on your right wrist where you were grabbed as your starting point, straighten your right forefinger and rotate your right hand clockwise to grab the attacker’s arm. The pressure of your forefinger against the bone of the attacker’s wrist should cause some pain. Holding the attacker’s wrist between thumb and forefinger, firmly twist his arm up in the direction of rotation, kick the back of his knee from behind, and elbow him in the head when he is bent over. While the attacker is momentarily overcome, run away. When you run away, take as many turnings as possible rather than going down narrow alleys. Ten seconds should be enough to give any pursuers the slip.


*Think of another technique or method of escape if there is a risk of injury.
