Self Defense Against A Wrist Grab

I would like to address one of the most common questions I get, which is, "How do I get out of a wrist grab?"  There are so many different wrist grabs, and most self defense instructors teach so many different escapes, spins, or twists for each potential wrist grab that it becomes downright confusing and virtually impossible to remember in a moment of violence.  Memorizing complex techniques are fine when one is practicing with no pressure testing, but the moment it becomes real, those complex skills go out the window.  All self defense must be raw, basic, gross motor movements that can hopefully be accessed when the shit hits the fan.  And even then, nothing is guaranteed to work.  If you don't strike the...
