In this weeks episode of Throat Punch Thursday I teach the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu hand chop. But honestly, who doesn’t love a hand chop? I know I love a hand chop! Whether it’s the ninja chop, karate chop, or the judy chop.
But today we’re talking about the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu hand chop. For those of you who don’t know if you look in Helio Gracie’s Master Test there is a hand chop. I know, I had to do it on my black belt test.
It’s especially useful when I’m getting unwanted attention from “sweet” dudes who think they know more Jiu-Jitsu than me. Isn’t that the worst? Some creepy guy walks up to you and all you want him to do is go away and leave you alone.
So what do you do? Hand Chop! First, you distract them by selling the hair. Trust me if you skip this step all is lost…(Enter super awesome slow mo. hair shake) then hand chop! HA! Now I have found a situation where the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu hand chop is not only useful but perfect for dealing with creepy old man beard face over here (I know Paul’s not old…) but some guys are.
