Heian/Pinan Sandan against lapel grab

Hi all

Just a little bit from the start of Heian/Pinan Sandan to play with lapel grabs

Very interesting. I really like using the first "chest block" as an uppercut or other such strike. In pressure testing lapel grab escapes like this, I think it's key to "soften" the attacker up with some blows first if possible. Thanks for sharing and adding another example for this movement!

Nice work Andi, That initial strike is nice. I'm looking forward to testing it out on my students. Tang Soo! John

Cheers both. This is one of the applications for the motion. The more I play with Sandan the cleverer it is. There is a very similar application in Jion that I may do soon. 

I think with the chest block, it gives you enough redundancy in the movement that it will help even when it goes wrong!
