Hip lock. Draw the arms of your opponent under your own. Lock his right arm with a grapevine, which places your hand between his chest and yours. Grasp his left elbow with your right hand. Cross your left leg in front of him. Bend, and using your hip as a fulcrum, heave him over.
Reverse hip lock. In this maneuver, the right arm slips under the left shoulder and the left arm secures the elbow of your opponent. You step across him with the right foot. Use the right hip as a fulcrum and throw him over.
Offensive wristlock. A highly versatile offensive tactic. In this example, it develops from an attempted one hand strangle. The hold is broken by palming the opponent’s hand and forcing forward. The wristlock is then applied. Fingers over the wrist and thumbs forcing the hand back. The assailant must follow the lead of the hand or suffer a broken wrist. With this lead, the opponent is easily thrown and subject to various forms of counterattack. Such as breaking the wrist or elbow, or a kick to the ribs, solar plexus, or the groin. The opponent is also held in a helpless position without the use of the hands.
Reverse wristlock. When an assailant seizes your clothing or pushes, he is completely vulnerable to counterattack. Reach over and grab the little fingers of your opponent’s hand. Place other hand on his elbow for leverage and roll his arm. As his head is forced down, clamp your elbow over his shoulder. Any resistance on his part can result in broken bones or forced joints. You may use your foot or knee in the face if necessary.
Double wristlock. In this illustration, a leg tackle is applied by the opponent. Seize his wrist straight over with your hand. Slide your other hand over his arm above the elbow and clasp your own wrist, thereby completing a double wristlock. From this position, a natural development is a twisting hammerlock up the back, with a throw backwards.
