Grappling & Pressure Point Techniques

From The Lesser Combined Ape & Crane Set:

These are similar to some of those found in the Chinese Art of Shuai-Chiao, as both Arts are influenced by Mongolian Wrestling

Sequence 1:

Double engagement with both arms against the opponents right pit-of-the-elbow and shoulder.  A simultaneous engagement is made against the opponents leading foot

The defenders right hand scoops the attackers neck 'down and away' - displacing his spinal alignment, augmented by the defender raising the attackers right arm.  Simultaneous pressure is placed against the attackers lead leg, on the ankle and knee joints

The attacker opportunistically makes a grab for the defenders lead leg - behind the knee

The defender pulls his leading leg back, still being gripped by the attacker.  This stretches the opponents shoulder plane and adds to the torque thru his structure.  These turning forces are increased by the defender, who continues to twist the attackers right arm - thru the vertical plane, and, applies a "contact pressure point" engagement thru his cervical spine (neck) - which is also simultaneously rotated.

The Attacker is rotated forwards, and towards the floor.  The pressure is still maintained.  This disturbs the attackers ability to 'process information' centrally, thru his brain.

The defender makes a 'transient root' by placing his right foot on the floor

Simultaneously the pressure point on the cervical spine is replaced, by following the natural contour of the neck, and reapplying against the carotid artery

This further increases 'processing load' on the attacker, as the defender now switches his weight back and up off the floor allowing a knee strike to the opponents head.

The defender continues the rotation thru the attackers neck

With fingers inserting into pressure points

Before a rapid switch into a torquing wrist lock

Which takes the opponent over

With his body weight falling 'thru' the wrist joint

Alternate Sequence 2:

As the leg pulls the gripping arm backwards, the right hand spins the neck and then the opponents left shoulder

This applies torque thru the spine and twists him violently towards his midline

Causing him to fall into an arm/wrist lock
