This armlock is ideal to use on a larger person or if you have small hands. It’s an excellent alternative to the wrist press armlock & is now used by a number of major law-enforcement agencies. Once set you have a great deal of control over the person & it can be quite painful – so use caution!
This technique is shown as a reaction to a right hit. It could be used for a variety of other techniques as well. Your initial response might have to be different, depending upon the attack or situation. It can be used from a desensitizing “come with me” hold [law-enforcement: low level of force] all the way to an overhead knife or club attack or high knife slash.
It is referred to as a “proper” hold because once the hold is set, the level of pain caused [by the attacker himself] is mainly determined by the resistance of the attacker to the hold.
Thanks to Marc Kolodziejczyk, for being my uke and Sensei Marc Tucker for the photography.
