Imagine that you’re about to sit down at your
favorite table after that last trip around the dance floor, when whom
should you see heading your way but Bubba, your ex-boyfriend.
Bubba reaches over with his left hand and grabs your left
wrist, pulling you towards him and insisting you go along with him. He
has twisted your hand in such a way you are in pain anytime you attempt
to move. This submission hold he has you in is called a "wristlock".
What are you going to do?
A wristlock is a submission technique. The opponent places pressure on the nerves and bones of the wrist. A small amount of pressure can cause enough pain to cause the victim to be willing to give into almost any thing to escape. If the attacker applies more pressure, he can actually break the wrist itself.
Great care is needed to escape the wristlock so you
don’t break your own wrist by accident. The beauty of a
wristlock is that the pain it causes, is because of the victim fighting
When a person attempts to fight the wrist lock, she usually
tightens the muscles and tendons in the hands and wrists. By doing this
the opponent is given the advantage due to the pain from your wrist.
If you can stay calm, it is possible to allow your arm, wrist and hand to relax. By doing this, the pain is removed to a great extent allowing you to give a well-placed kick, punch, bite or knee strike. If you do this, it will often surprise your opponent.
"Take immediate advantage of this momentary confusion."
If his hold on your hand is loosened, attempt to jerk your
wrist away by pushing against the attackers "thumb". The thumb is much
weaker than the rest of the hand since it is alone. By rotating the
bone in your arm you have extra torque to free your hand against the
thumb, you have an excellent chance to loosen the grip.
Once you have freed your wrist, you have several more weapons
as we have talked about earlier.
Remember that the “pinkie” or little
finger is the weakest finger in the hand. If you can cover his hand
with your free hand, reach over and grab the last section of his
pinkie. Then using a sudden, sharp snapping motion, make the back of
your opponent’s pinkie meet the back of his hand, he is going
to release you immediately due to the intense pain felt in his hand!
This move while very affective and must be done with feeling. This isn’t the time to feel sympathy for your attacker’s pain.
