Self defense against a PUSH

In India Teacher's Day is celebrated on 5th September every year. I would like to pay my deepest respects and regards to all the Teacher's that I have come across in my life. I am truly blessed to have had so many exceptionally wonderful teacher's in just one lifetime. The person I am today is because of the nurturing and moulding by my teacher's. I believe that every person we meet or interact with in life has something important to teach us, so ideally all those around us in our life's are our teacher's.

Coming to the technique that we have today. Whenever a brawl or fight breaks up on the street the chances are very high that it will begin with some pushing or grappling. Today we will see how or what should be done if we are being pushed. There are many ways of defending an attack we are showing just one of the ways here.

The attacker pushes you and is coming to push you again with his right hand. Step back with your right leg and as the attackers palm comes towards you block his palm between both your palms turning into the attacker. As you have his palm trapped between your palms turn your left hand in such a way that you have the attackers elbow locked by  placing your left hand, then you can strike the back of the head of the attacker with a back fist strike. Here you would have the attackers wrist as well as elbow locked and plus you can strike his head or spine with your left hand. The technique is simple but perfection come only with practice so keep practicing it again and again.
