Some times ago, I conducted an informal survey on a number of Martial Arts online forums and pages; I asked a simple question: "If you had only one self-defence technique to teach, which one would it be?"
Patrice BonnafouxOne very common attack on women -particularly in cases of sexual assaults- is the following: the aggressor, using his left hand, grabs and pulls on the victim's right forearm to drag her to a nearby secondary location.
While working on various situations around this scenario with one of my
female students, we realized that because of the difference of
seize/weight between us, what would normally be a simple "defence against arm pulling"
situation, was in fact much worse for the victim.
