  • As you are being pushed put your arms together and do a double finger thrust to his eyes.
  • Turn to your left as you deliver an upward elbow strike to the solar plexus an up.
  • Everything that goes up has to come down to do that with a heel palm to the face and step out.


  • You must grab the right wrist before you do your upward elbow strike otherwise the attacker might move or even block it.
