In this video, we learn how to perform a backward wristlock: Omote Gyaku. This is a basic move that can be done in different variations. First, place your thumb on the back of their hand and turn the wrist around. After this, turn it sideways and turn it up and over. Doing this will twist the wrist and lock it so the opponent falls down to the ground with pain. Just a small amount of force sets off a chain reaction in all the joints in the entire body. Once you have this down, it's a very effective tool in taking down an attacker and letting you go free.
