Defense against a one-hand lapel grab

  • 7-3 outside with an ude-uke.
    • Lapel grabs are typically followed by a reverse punch, like in ice hockey fights. Pay attention to the opponent's opposite-side shoulder to detect any motion; this "tell," indicates when they will strike.
  • Execute a same-side makkikomi-shutō to their throat.
