Red Belt Ho Sin Sul - Two on One Grabs

Three two-on-one hand grabs. In the examples below the opponent grabs your right wrist with both their right and left hands.

  1. Attacker grabs your right wrist with both hands ("Prayer" move). With your left hand reach beside the attacker’s right hand and place your hands together palm to palm (as if praying) [See image right]. Rotate both of your hands clockwise turning to the right. At one point you will be able to grab your opponent’s right wrist with your right hand. Grab the wrist and slide the left open hand up the attacker’s arm [First image below] pushing downward as you do. During this turning process, you should step with the left foot into a front stance to the right [Second image below - reverse angle view]. With you in a left-leg leading Front Stance, and the attacker bent over with the left arm outstretched, pick up your front leg and then stomp downward, and execute an elbow strike to the back of their arm [Last image below - reverse angle view].


Since this was originally presented, the position of the defender's legs has switched to avoid being vulnerable to a grab and throw by the attacker. The defender should step forward with the right leg rather than the left leg as is show below.


  1. Attacker grabs your right wrist with both hands. Reach between the attacker’s hands with your left hand and grab your own right fist [See image right]. Pull the fist upward between the opponent’s hands. As you pull the fist toward you, pull the left knee up and perform a right jump front snap kick [See image below]. As you kick pull the left fist back to your right rib cage. Finnish in a Front Stance with the left punch to the attacker’s face.



  1. Attacker grabs your right wrist with both hands. With your left hand reach underneath the attacker’s right hand and grab your own right fist [See image right]. Rotate your right elbow up/in/downward towards the attacker’s solar plexus until your right elbow is pointed downward and your forearm is pointed upward. This should break the grip they had. [First image below show the movement about half way through]. With your left hand grab the attacker’s right hand by the little finger [Second image below]. Pull their right hand off and raise it above your head. With the right foot, step to the left [Third image below]. Now with your left foot, step under the up-raised arms and turn 1800 until you are facing them again [Fourth image below]. In the process of turning you will have twisted their wrist so much that significant pressure is on their arm. Put more pressure on the wrist by bending it backward with a short snap, breaking it. With the right fist, punch them in the face [Last image below].
