Back Attack Dirty Tricks

Reference: Back Attack

Fig. 1 Shoulder Arm Bar Fig. 2 Arm Pit Arm Bar Fig. 3 Kuta Punch Fig. 4 Gouge Eye

  1. Fig. 1 shows a shoulder arm bar. If Uke is careless going for the choke Nage may be able to easily end it with this.
  2. Fig. 2 shows an arm pit arm bar. Frequently Uke will grab under the arms to establish control before going for the choke. If Uke is careless Nage might get this.
  3. Fig. 3 DOK Lee liked the over the shoulder Kuta punch. We find this fairly easy to do in this situation.
  4. Fig. 4 is our old faithful eye gouge. Because Nage cannot see Uke's face this is a little more difficult to get.

In all chokes and many holds Nage can try pinching Uke or pulling hair. A tough guy will not care and a good choke will take Nage out quickly, but if all else fails it is worth a try.
