Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Cecil Burch joins Rob Pincus to demonstrate how to control an attacker with hand to hand training techniques. If the attacker is your buddy who’s drunk or otherwise lost it, or if it’s a genuine bad guy whom you’ve subdued and help is about to arrive, you might want to control this person after he’s down instead of finishing the fight or creating distance and escaping. The technique shown does not require extensive grappling experience to implement successfully.
