TECHNIQUES TECHNIQUES # 1 through # 10, START WITH A LEFT HAND GRAB OF THE LEFT WRIST.

1. Using your right hand--grip his hand with a 'horseshoe grip"--keep his hand in contact with your left wrist--raise to a centering position--slide left hand down to just above his elbow (in the process of sliding, break his thumb)--execute a 180 degree pivot on left foot while right foot travels clockwise 180 degrees while pulling your right hand to your right hip--press down with your left hand on his arm and pull up on his hand, creating an arm-bar--at same time twist his hand in two directions:

A) Palm toward his forearm and B) Pinkie toward floor--execute left knife hand strike to point just below earlobe on jawbone.
Some add-on control holds could be:
I ) Continue the rotation of your hips so that the opponent ends up on the floor, face down ... kneel on his neck with right knee and put his arm in a control hold.
II ) After creating the arm-bar, drive opponent straight forward ending up with his body face down on floor--follow up with multiple strikes or control holds.

2. As in # 1 technique, once in centering position--grab his wrist with your left hand--keep his pinkie in the up-most position--maintain his wrist in a stable and immovable position--make a pinch point with your right pinkie and your left index finger--rotate his hand in two directions simultaneously--A) pinkie toward his forearm and B) palm toward the ceiling -- push his hand toward his chest as this will create more pain as the elbow bends--apply enough pressure to drop him to his knees--kick his chest and takedown into a control hold with his wrist in joint lock position--follow up with strikes if needed.


NOTE: DO BOTH TECHNIQUES FROM A ONE-HAND GRAB, TWO-HAND GRAB, AND NO-HAND GRAB (straight technique)
