Sticking with the basic fundamentals, we're going to give you . If your opponent grabs your wrist on the same side, raise your opposite hand up and in a circular motion step through, striking the arm. Then come around positioning yourself so your elbow goes right into his center mass. It's important to get the circular motion going. When this technique is practiced over and over again, it teaches the student body positioning to maximize your impact power. It also opens up followup strikes to other areas besides the plexus, including the groin or head, as well as throws.
