Three common throwing styles in Jiu-Jitsu-illustration-
The whole world considers Jiu-Jitsu to be one of the most effective forms of self-defense. A short man, if he is proficient in this, will not find it difficult to throw a big man down and bring him to his knees.

There are many ways to wrestle, which are explained below:

1. Shin wrestling: grab the opponent’s collar with one hand, grab his sleeve with the other hand, and retreat with the left foot. When the opponent’s left foot steps forward, place your right foot on the outside of his left shin and sweep towards your left; At the same time, bend your left arm and pull him sharply towards your right.

Note: Keep your right leg straight, do not use the inside of your foot to sweep the opponent’s shin, otherwise it will be difficult to drop him on the one hand, and on the other hand, it will be painful for both parties. When pulling your hands to the right, you do not pull directly to the right, but at the same time slightly to the left. The right foot must be swept to the left, not a horizontal kick.

Proper posture is important, otherwise you will also fall by losing your balance. As for the arm pulling action, in addition to the arm bending, the elbow must be close to the body and fully extended back.

If your opponent’s right foot steps forward, you can sweep his right shin with his right foot instead and pull his arm to the left.

This throwing method is only used when two people pull each other, and the body is forward or backward. If you can throw your opponent off balance, this is the best chance to use this throw.

The method of defense is to lift the attacked kick so that the opponent’s foot is empty; At the same time, you can also take the opportunity to pull him to the left; Or sweep the shins of his foot in the same way and throw him down before his empty foot reaches the ground.

2. Knee throw: grab the opponent’s collar with one hand, grab his sleeve with the other, and at the same time take a step back to the left, and pull him in the direction of regression with the left hand.

When his right foot steps forward, place his left foot on the outside of his left foot and sweep it hard to your right, while pulling him sharply to the left and back with his left arm. The right arm must be sufficiently bent.

The purpose of the body retreating to the left is to move the opponent’s foot forward, and then add the force of the left arm to pull his body out of balance.

When practicing, do not support the soles of your feet above or before your opponent’s kneecap, nor do you use the inside of your feet to kick horizontally, otherwise it is easy to hurt your opponent’s knees.

This method is best used when the opponent is moving forward or moving sideways, and should not be used when the opponent is retreating.

Note: The upper body should be kept in a straight extended position, and the leg on the outside of the opponent’s knee with the hand must be straight and not bent.

The best way to resist this is to quickly twist your body towards the leg that your opponent is sweeping you, and bend your legs.

3. Horizontal hook method: grab the opponent’s collar and sleeve with both hands, when his right foot steps forward, you twist your body 90° to the left, use your right calf to hook the back of his right knee, and at the same time pull him to the left with a left kick.

Your right leg must be fully bent and swept to the left. When your legs are swept back, your body must be bent forward slightly and the center of gravity of your body must be moved forward slightly.

When using this method, you must stand firmly and maintain your body balance, otherwise you will be taken advantage of by your opponent.

The way to dodge is to lift one leg of the attack forward so that it does not sweep the opponent.
