Defense against a two opponents, each grabbing one of your wrists with both hands

  • Twist and front kick one attacker. Upon re-chambering, immediately rear kick the other attacker.
    • These kicks are meant to be atemi. Additionally, these kicks will knock the attackers back, compromising their balance.
  • Rotate your arm in a large, outside-to-inside circle, tying the first attacker up with a reverse wristlock.
  • Reverse punch the first attacker’s brainstem. In the process, you will break free from the second attacker’s weakened grip.
  • Use the reciprocal action of your returning punch to rear elbow strike the second attacker.
