SIM­PLE BUT EF­FEC­TIVE

American Survival Guide - - NEW PRODUCTS -

A fe­male friend of mine re­cently used a wrist lock tech­nique I taught her sev­eral years ago to drop a man who was both­er­ing her. She was also car­ry­ing at the time, but she chose not to use the threat of a gun to han­dle the sit­u­a­tion. Al­though the guy was much stronger and larger than she was, the one-handed tech­nique brought him to his knees in­stantly. (She said the look on his face was price­less!)

The most sig­nif­i­cant part of the story, from my per­spec­tive, is that she had not used the tech­nique in all the years be­tween when I taught it to her and this in­stance. Sim­plic­ity and ef­fec­tive­ness are the keys for most peo­ple who want to in­clude mar­tial art skills in their bag of tricks.
