Gedan Uke Drills–Lapel Grab Defenses

February 17, 2018

Single and double lapel grabs are common attacks, and several karate kihon and kata movements are designed to address this act of violence. In this video, we look at some ways to use a basic combination to defend against single or double lapel grabs: low block, reverse punch, knee strike, and dropping elbow. The first part of the video discusses using this combination to avoid being grabbed, and the second part adapts the drill for instances when the enemy successfully grabs the lapels.
