In this module, we will cover the five modes of entry you can use if you decide you need to engage your enemy with the goal achieving Command control.
Mode One: The Handshake
- Using you lead hand, grip your opponent’s right wrist.
- Next, come over his forearm with your right hand and Cup Grip his triceps.
Mode Two: The Arm Drag
- Using your lead hand, grip your opponent’s right wrist.
- Next, come underneath his forearm with your right hand and Hook Grip his triceps.
Mode Three: The Hook Grip or Overlap
This entry technique can be useful if your threat has his hands on his hips.
- Bring your left arm underneath his upper arm and Hook Grip the triceps.
- Bring your right arm over and overlap your left hand.
Mode Four: The “C-Clamp” Grip
Again, this entry mode can be handy if your opponent has his hands on his hips.
- Bring your left hand underneath his arm and Hook Grip his triceps.
- Using your right hand, apply a “C-Clamp” grip on his neck.
Mode Five: The Frame
This entry mode works best if your threat is walking toward you.
- Using your right hand, Hook Grip the trap muscle.
- Make sure that your forearm is resting against his chest. This creates a “frame”.
- Bring your left arm underneath and Hook Grip his triceps.
If you practice these entry methods, it brings you a step closer to Command Control.
