SIX WAYS TO CONTROL AN ATTACK
- MANIPULATION OF THE JOINTS
This involves the maneuvering and proper positioning of joints, as well
as strikes to the joints.
- CONTROLLING THE MUSCLES
This principle involves applying pressure to the different muscle groups
in order to help maneuver the attacker. The pressure applied to the
muscle is produced in three different ways:
TWISTING the muscle!
STRIKING the muscle!
GRABBING and SQUEEZING the muscle!
- REGULATING THE BREATHING
This principle is divided into two methods of control:
RESTRICTING THE AIR FLOW ( Restricting how much air the attacker is
allowed to take in or release while breathing );
CUTTING OFF ALL AIR ( Cutting off all air which may be trying to enter
or leave the lungs )
- RESTRICTING THE BLOOD
This principle involves restraining the blood flow from an artery or
vein. In Hosin-Sul techniques, the practitioner will be trying to
achieve one or more of the three main objectives of this principle:
Induce the attacker to become weak and incoherent;
Render the attacker unconscious;
Terminate the attacker (used as a last resort only).
- DIRECTION OF FORCE
Direction of force refers to the direction an object or form of power is
moving toward you, and how to neutralize the power or force so it will
not cause damage to you.
- BODY REACTION
Body reaction is how the attacker's body will react to the pulling,
twisting, pushing, pressure, and blows you will exert against different
parts of his body.
