Get the Knockout with This Hand Trap

Wouldn’t it be great if you could just punch your opponent in the face without retaliation?

Well, we can’t quite get there, but we can get close. This will be the nearest we can get you to turning your opponent into a punching bag: the hand trap.

This is a technique that appears as simple as they come. However, there are details you must pay close attention to. Your pull of the opponent’s hand must not be a motion any bigger than is necessary. It’s like a parry; you’re simply patting the opponent’s hand away with minimum effort.

If you pull too hard, you’ll leave yourself exposed instead of your opponent. Think of it like head movement. What happens if you lean too far back? You’ll take forever to return to your stance and fire back a counter.
