Martial Arts Advice

November 15, 2018

To adequately escape any kind of grip, the key is to apply pressure to somebody’s thumb. If a person has you by the elbow, you press your arm against their thumb. If somebody is touching your butt inappropriately, you can use your thumb and index finger to grab their thumb, and remove it. Before somebody grabs your arm, it is best to use an elbow strike that pushes them away from you. In class, when people train, they do things like grab your gi but on the street, you have to be able to think on your feet.

Thinking on your feet means your brain has to think fast. It is not that hard. You can think on your feet in many other situations, besides martial arts. Elbow strikes are effective when somebody grabs you, an elbow strike to the shoulder, and to the stomach for example. Rarely does a victim ever need to punch someone in the face, although if worse comes to worse, punching someone in the face is necessary. Pushing someone out of the way with Chi involves the intake of three sharp breaths, inhaling, which then gives you the strength to push them. This is more or less how superstrength works.
