Submissions 101, we're going to show you self-defense technique here. When someone who is behind you, and grabs you around the neck, and grabs onto your arms.
Now what I am going to do is I am going to grab and I am going to shrug, bend my legs, come down. This hand is going to move up my center line, up here. When I do that I am going to transfer to my other hand.
Notice, how my fingers are wrapping just the pinky-side, right around here, medi- side. So I am here, I grab, and I pull it over, and I pull my head up. Now, what I am going to do is I am going to step out, notice how his arm is at 90 degrees and I am going to be turning his hand towards his body. We called this Sankajo. But in order to really force this to make it very, very nasty joint lock in the wrist area, I am going to take my hand, I am going to put it right through. I am just going to grab on to his shoulder, and I am going to be turning his hand. So I am turning it this way. So the palm is going towards the camera.
So again, shrug, transfer down, up, grabbing onto the shoulder. I will just turning so you can see, so I am grabbing up here, and I have -- it's essential you can turn this. Now what I can also do is, I can just force him down onto his butt, I take him in my verbal command, I will say, sit down, sit down, he is down on the ground. He naturally will roll through his side, to eliminate the pressure, and I am just going to keep turning this. So the thumb is rotating over.
