Hi Folks,

Wow lots of great threads and discussions lately. I thought I would just throw this out for fun and thought. I don't expect that there is anything really new to many here. I just thought a thread on techniques might be nice.

These are some notes from a seminar that I set up. Hope you like them.


Getting Free


A Seminar


By


Rick Wilson


(Uechi Ryu)

This Seminar will cover the principles of getting free from stand up grabs. The grab has already taken place and the aggressor has their hands on you. You will find that wherever possible the defenses shown will be very similar. The fact is, that the more choice you have in how to defend yourself before you react, the longer it takes you to react. Concentrating on simple direct defenses that are related to each other, and sound principles, increases the likelihood of your remembering them not only from this seminar but when you need them most. These principles will specifically be applied to the follow grabs:

Grabs from the front:

A) Double Lapel Grab

B) Two Handed Choke

C) Single handed Lapel Grab

D) Single Handed Choke

E) Head Lock from the front:

Grabs from the Rear:

Bear Hugs:

F) Over the Arms High:

G) Under the Arms High:

H) Over the Arms Low:

I) Under the Arms Low:

J) Rear Coke:

K) Full Nelson

L) Bonus: Head Lock from the side

The Principle of GETTING FREE


A Major Principle to be done before the three following action principles: ESTABLISH A STRONG BASE.

1) Strike and off balance


2) Take the aggressor down


3) Finish the threat


1) Strike and off balance: The aggressor has taken hold of you. They believe that there is nothing that you can do to prevent them from holding and damaging you. They do not believe that you can strike them. If they did then they never would have laid hands upon you. This gives you the advantage of surprise. Use this to further distract and divert the aggressors intentions from their original purpose. We do this by striking the aggressor. The mind can only think one thought at a time. It may go from one thought to another quickly but it can only think one at a time. So here they are thinking grab and toss. You strike them and their thoughts go directly to where they have been hit, even if just for a split second. This distracts them while you off balance them and set them up for step two.

2) Take the aggressor down: Most people do not know how to fall and can be injured or stunned by being slammed into the ground.

3) Finish the threat: Once the aggressor has hit the ground, you must determine what threat to you remains from that individual and finish the take down appropriately. This could entail simply turning and leaving the scene quickly, striking to ensure they are unable to continue their assault, or placing a controlling hold on them.

The law says that you may only use the amount of force required to defend yourself.

Grabs from the front:

A) Double Lapel Grab:

The aggressor has committed both hands to holding you.

1) Strike and off balance:

- Using your hips pivot to (you can choose your preferred direction) the left.

- As you do this slide your right fist up along the front of the aggressor. Close to them but not touching them. Drive your fist up under their chin.

- Your left hand should pin the aggressor's right hand to your chest.

2) Take the aggressor down:

- Drop your left foot back into a horse stance (Uechi Stance)

- As you drop back slide your right forearm down along the aggressor's right forearm to the top of their elbow joint. (Pull your elbow into Sanchin)

- Drop your stance, or if the aggressor is very large turn slightly to your left and drop to your right knee. This drops your body weight onto their forearm just below the elbow joint at a forty five degree angle and drives them to the ground.

KEEP YOUR BACK AS STRAIGHT AS POSSIBLE.

3) Finish the threat:

Run, or strike the aggressor in a vital target, or drop into an arm lock.

B) Two Handed Choke

The aggressor has committed both hands to holding you.

1) Strike and off balance:

- Using your hips pivot to (you can choose your preferred direction) the left.

- As you do this slide your right fist up along the front of the aggressor. Close to them but not touching them. Drive your fist up under their chin.

- Your left hand should pin the aggressor's right hand to your chest.


2) Take the aggressor down:

- Drop your left foot back into a horse stance (Uechi Stance)

- As you drop back slide your right forearm down along the aggressor's right forearm to the top of their elbow joint. (Pull your elbow into Sanchin)

- Drop your stance, or if the aggressor is very large turn slightly to your left and drop to your right knee. This drops your body weight onto their forearm just below the elbow joint at a forty five degree angle and drives them to the ground.

KEEP YOUR BACK AS STRAIGHT AS POSSIBLE.

3) Finish the threat:

Run, or strike the aggressor in a vital target, or drop into an arm lock.

C) Single handed Lapel Grab:

The aggressor has only committed one hand to holding you. This means they may be meaning to strike you. It also means that you must pivot into the arm that is holding you.

1) Strike and off balance:

- Using your hips pivot towards the arm holding. We will use a pivot to the left

- As you do this slide your right fist up along the front of the aggressor. Close to them but not touching them. Drive your fist up under their chin.

- Your left hand should pin the aggressor's right hand to your chest.

2) Take the aggressor down:

- Drop your left foot back into a horse stance (Uechi Stance)

- As you drop back slide your right forearm down along the aggressor's right forearm to the top of their elbow joint. (Pull your elbow into Sanchin)

- Drop your stance, or if the aggressor is very large turn slightly to your left and drop to your right knee. This drops your body weight onto their forearm just below the elbow joint at a forty five degree angle and drives them to the ground.

KEEP YOUR BACK AS STRAIGHT AS POSSIBLE.

3) Finish the threat:

Run, or strike the aggressor in a vital target, or drop into an arm lock.

D) Single Handed Choke

The aggressor has only committed one hand to holding you. This means they may be meaning to strike you. It also means that you must pivot into the arm that is holding you.

1) Strike and off balance:

- Using your hips pivot towards the arm holding. We will use a pivot to the left

- As you do this slide your right fist up along the front of the aggressor. Close to them but not touching them. Drive your fist up under their chin.

- Your left hand should pin the aggressor's right hand to your chest.

2) Take the aggressor down:

- Drop your left foot back into a horse stance (Uechi Stance)

- As you drop back slide your right forearm down along the aggressor's right forearm to the top of their elbow joint. (Pull your elbow into Sanchin)

- Drop your stance, or if the aggressor is very large turn slightly to your left and drop to your right knee. This drops your body weight onto their forearm just below the elbow joint at a forty five degree angle and drives them to the ground.

KEEP YOUR BACK AS STRAIGHT AS POSSIBLE.

3) Finish the threat:

Run, or strike the aggressor in a vital target, or drop into an arm lock.


E) Head Lock from the front:

1) Strike and off balance

- With the leg on the side OPPOSITE the side the aggressor has grabbed you on (For this example the aggressor has grabbed you with their right arm, so you step in with your right leg):

- As you step in:

a) - Grip their arm with your left hand to prevent the choke from closing.

b) With your other hand strike to just above the knee on their inner thigh with a shoken (one knuckle strike).

2) Take the aggressor down

- Place both your hands on the aggressor's thigh (in this example their right thigh). BOTH YOUR ELBOWS MUST BE LOCKED AGAINST YOUR BODY BRACING FOR THE NEXT MOVE. IF THEY ARE NOT YOU WILL INJURE YOUR NECK.

- Sit down on your buttocks. This will drag the aggressor over top of you. You can add to the throw by extending your arms as they go over.

SAFETY NOTE FOR PRACTICE: THE PERSON BEING THE AGGRESSOR MUST TUCK THEIR CHIN OR THEY WILL DO A NASTY FACE PLANT.

3) Finish the threat

- You can roll over on top of the aggressor or rise and strike them on the ground. They may also be far enough away from you to leave quickly.

Grabs from the Rear:

Bear Hugs:

For all bearhug defenses the establishing of a strong base is achieved by dropping down into a horse stance. The stance should not be a proper one but have a slight lean forward to prevent yourself from being pulled back. In addition, as you drop into the horse stance bump back into the aggressor with your hips.

F) Over the Arms High:

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop into a horse stance. Raise your arms up into thrusting position but do not draw them all the way back. You want them to be able to prevent the aggressor's arms from dropping lower.

- Strike back into the aggressor's solar plexus with your right elbow.

- As you strike grip the aggressor's right wrist with your left hand.

Note: The strike does not have to hit only momentarily unbalance the aggressor.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Clamp your right arm up on to the aggressor's upper right arm,.

- Turning with your hips to the left, drop down to your right knee. (Point your right hand towards the ground.)

3) Finish the threat

- Leave, or drop onto the aggressor's ribs with your knee and strike to the face, or place an arm lock on them.

G) Under the Arms High:

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop into a horse stance.

- Strike back to the aggressor's head with your right elbow.

- As you strike grip the aggressor's right wrist with your left hand.

Note: The strike does not have to hit only momentarily unbalance the aggressor.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Clamp your right arm down on to the aggressor's upper right arm.

- Turning with your hips to the left, drop down to your right knee. (Point your right hand towards the ground.) If the aggressor pulls you with them, do not fight. Allow your body to drop and land on their rib cage.

3) Finish the threat

- Leave, or drop onto the aggressor's ribs with your knee and strike to the face, or place an arm lock on them.

H) Over the Arms Low:

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop down into a horse stance.

- Twist your hips to the right opening up a path to the aggressor's groin.

- Strike back with a crane beak to the aggressor's groin. The aggressor will most likely shoot his hips back to avoid the strike. This is okay it is the space and distraction we want.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Use the distraction of the strike to slip your right leg (not your body) over and back behind the aggressor's legs.

- Twist your hips to the right extending your arms through a circle to your right. The aggressor will drop backwards.

3) Finish the threat

Finish as appropriate to the situation.

I) Under the Arms Low:

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop into a horse stance.

- Strike back to the aggressor's head with your right elbow.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Keeping your hands extended in front of you, bend forward at the waist.

- Reaching between your legs grab the aggressor's ankle or pant leg with both hands.

- Slide the aggressor's foot forward along the ground as you sit back down onto his knee.

SAFETY NOTES:

1) BE VERY CAREFUL THAT YOU DO NOT FALL ONTO YOUR PARTNER'S LEG AT THIS POINT AS IT WILL BE BADLY DAMAGED.

2) THE PARTNER PLAYING THE AGGRESSOR MUST NOT HANG ON TO THE DEFENDER. IF THE AGGRESSOR HANGS ON THE DEFENDER WILL FALL ONTO THE AGGRESSOR'S PELVIC AREA. THIS MAY BREAK THE PELVIC GIRDLE.

3) Finish the threat

- The defender can leave, or kick along the leg to the aggressor's groin, or simply sit down onto the knee to damage it.



J) Rear Coke:

1) Strike and off balance

- Establishing a strong base by dropping down into a horse stance. The stance should not be a proper one but have a slight lean forward to prevent yourself from being pulled back. In addition, as you drop into the horse stance bump back into the aggressor with your hips.

- Here the hip bump is the only strike you have time for. It is enough to offset the aggressor's balance.

2) Take the aggressor down

Basic Method:

- Clamp both hands on to the aggressor's arms. Tense your neck and pull your chin downward.

- Turning with your hips to the left, drop down to your right knee. Drop your head down to the left almost to the ground. The aggressor will drop over to the ground.


Advanced Method:

- Clamp both hands on to the aggressor's arms. Tense your neck and pull your chin downward.

- Bend the upper part of your body at the waist and look directly between your legs. The aggressor will fly over top.

3) Finish the threat

- Drop onto the aggressor's ribs with your knee and strike to the face.

K) Full Nelson:

Establishing a base is critical to make this defense work. A properly applied Full Nelson is an extremely painful submission hold.

Establish a Base:

a) If you feel their arms slipping under you, drop into a horse stance and clamp your arms to your side pinning their arms to you.

b) If they get the hold in place, place the back of your right hand to your forehead. Place your left palm against your right palm. Grip the hands together. Relax and press back with your hands, pulling your elbows downward.

Drive your hips back as you strongly pull your elbows down breaking the grip. (This can be preceded by a foot stomp for distraction.)

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop into a horse stance. Raise your arms up into thrusting position but do not draw them all the way back. You want them to be able to prevent the aggressor's arms from dropping lower.

- Strike back into the aggressor's solar plexus with your right elbow.

- As you strike grip the aggressor's right wrist with your left hand.

Note: The strike does not have to hit only momentarily unbalance the aggressor.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Clamp your right arm up on to the aggressor's upper right arm,.

- Turning with your hips to the left, drop down to your right knee. (Point your right hand towards the ground.)

3) Finish the threat

- Leave, or drop onto the aggressor's ribs with your knee and strike to the face, or place an arm lock on them.


L) Bonus: Head Lock from the side

1) Strike and off balance

- Drop into a horse stance with your leg behind the aggressor's legs.

- Your hand on the outside of the grab should grasp the aggressor's arm.

- Your chin should be pulled down and turned in towards the aggressor's ribs.

- Your free hand should strike up between the aggressor's legs.

2) Take the aggressor down

- Your free hand should reach around to grab the aggressor's other arm to prevent them from striking you.

- Place your heel behind the aggressor's far foot.

- Twist your body out and away from the aggressor as you drop down to your buttock (NOTE: THIS MUST BE OUT FROM UNDER THE AGGRESSOR.)

- This will take the aggressor down and to the bottom.

3) Finish the threat

- If the aggressor lets go, simply mount and finish as is appropriate for the situation.

- If they do not, place your foot (farthest away from your heads) over the aggressor's body and flat on the ground.

- Place your bottom arm's forearm on the aggressor's throat.

- Lean down onto the aggressor until the hold is broken and then mount and finish as is appropriate for the situation.
