How to Defend Against the Donald Trump Handshake – VIDEO
“I wanted to share a technique today … as I’m scrolling through my Facebook feed I see this video and it hits me. I’ve got to teach the defense against the Donald Trump handshake,” said the instructor at the Relson Gracie Academia de Jiu-Jitsu in the video.
“Somebody grabs your hand and they pull you in — you’ve seen the awkwardness.”
“Now I’m not suggesting you do this to the president,” he added, then demonstrating the “goose neck” wrist lock he says will defend against the hand shake.
“As he grabs really hard and pulls you in, I go with it. I step in with the outside foot, I wrap around the elbow. As I do that, I’m going to block his arm from here, I bend the wrist in, the other hand wraps over the top of the knuckles and boom — now you have what we call a goose neck.”
“Secret Service, I promise, if I meet the president, I probably won’t wristlock him,” the instructor jokes in the video.
