On behalf of Expert Village, I’m Julio Rivera.
And I’m Ricardo Belad. And we’re here at Premier Martial Arts in New York City showing you
Israeli martial arts. So now we’ll do defense against a stick. Now, if someone is good at
using weapons, run. But if he’s not good–most people aren’t, ninety-nine percent of people
aren’t–you have a chance. First we’ll go wide. So I’m going to come in here with a
hard block. Again, here. Sometimes just from a hard block the person will drop the weapon,
if it’s hard enough. So from here I’m going to slide my left arm over his arm and right
under his elbow, rotating that elbow up. I’m clasping onto my own forearm, my right forearm,
and my right hand is on his shoulder. Now I’m going to push down on his shoulder as
my left wrist comes up under his elbow, creating a lock. From there, I can come behind, take
him down, and control him here. The stick is right here, I can grab the stick if he
wasn’t dropped it already, and strike. In real time now.
