Took me a while to publish notes from the second part of the seminar, but here we go. Thanks for your patience and hope my readers find this useful.

Ex 22: #1 grabs and holds #2 in a crowd by both hands at the wrists. #2 turns the wrists to release the grip and grabs #1 by the shirt. After that, #2 puts both thumbs out and presses them into the ribs to bring #1 up on his toes due to the pain shock and move him through the crowd using his body as a shield.

Ex 23: The attacker takes a boxing stance with both arms raised. The defender holds attacker's arms by the wrists from the front to prevent from striking. The attacker pulls one of defender's arms closer to straighten it and then moves the other arm either over it or under it to "hook" both arms of the opponent.

Ex 24: Same concept with both arms lowered or raised mid-way. Note that when hooking from underneath a lowered arm of the opponent, it is easier to use a hand with the thumb pointed up; if attacker's arm is raised higher up, it is easier to hook with the inner side of the elbow.

Ex 25: The attacker starts by grabbing defender's wrist. The defender needs to turn his hand and make a small move (arm, body, or both) to create tension in the holding arm of the attacker and put him in an uncomfortable position. Some options for the defender are to rotate the forearm inward or outward, but close to the body; if the arm is moved far away, it will be easy for the attacker to escape. Note that later this will allow the defender to work against the shoulder or elbow joints, etc.

When comfortable with the exercise, the defender starts working just before the attacker can establish a firm grip on the wrist.

Ex 26: Attacker grabs from the front or from behind (to embrace defender's body either over his arms to pin them to the body or under the arms to squeeze the body for a stronger hold). Defender's job is to make a small move to lock the attacker (i.e., get him a little unbalanced and holding on to the defender for support) and start walking to move him. With the frontal hold, the defender can work against attacker's spine (by pressing on attacker's lower back from behind with a hand and simultaneously pressing with the shoulder onto the turned head of the attacker from the front).

Ex 27: The attacker grabs the defender by the wrist (matching arms). The defender steps back and to a side so the arm of the opponent lifts and moves a bit away from attacker's body. Then the defender moves the other arm underneath the holding arm and upward to grab the attacker by the neck from the front. From this position, the defender pulls back on attacker's holding arm as a lever to make the opponent first tilt and then fall over backward.
