Wrist Grab Same Side – Summary

  • The key to this breakaway like all wrist grabs is to remember regardless of how big and strong the attacker is, all the grip strength is in the thumb.  Break that, and you are home free!
  • The key to effective wrist grab escapes is to always pull in the direction of his thumb. If his grip changes and his thumb slides around your wrist to face upwards, simply change the direction of your pull too up also.
  • Use your entire body when rotating your hips and the more energy generated by physics the quicker the release.
  • Try and always make the step back as big as possible. This will give your hips more room to swing and most importantly creates distance between his fist and you if he decides to hit immediately after grabbing you.
