A couple of months ago, I posted a question: "How would you go about coping with short jabbing punches"

Last week, I came across a video clip of someone showing how to do it. He grabbed hold of the boxer's arms in some sort of lock.

Thing is, I can't find it again!

Does anyone know where it is? The man was called 'Eagle Claw', or something. Can anyone find it?

Take up boxing, get to learn the timing which varies from boxer to boxer..... good footwork, timing and distance, parrying and catching, close in rapidly.... and I mean rapidly at an angle of about 30* depending on whether orthodox or southpaw and you may get lucky.... but you will have to practice and be a little daring!! good luck....

I have never seen this video but the name EagleClaw rings a bell. Do a search for Robert Lara Sensei. I believe he uses the name "ironfisteagleclaw".

hope this helps,

Paul

Attilio Anthony John Wagstaffe,

In my Aikido dojo, we deal with this everyday scenario that one would encounter here in the west quite easily. One can use a modified taisabaki or ukemi. You would not be able to use the full version because of the movement of the boxers jab. Basically it would require you to move in close enough to spin around the person grabbing a hold of there head, executing various choices of neck chokes. These would immobilize the boxer preventing the continued jabbing. If executed correctly it can be quite effective and definitely required a lot of practice from different scenarios. The hardest part is timing the taisabaki or ukemi to insure that you are not punched while stepping toward the opponent to execute the taisabaki or ukemi. The closer you get into the opponent with quick precision, almost like a pivot, the better you can execute the move.

We practice this all the time. Both the ukemi and taisabaki have to be modified according to the encounter that you are confronted with. You cannot use the full taisabaki or ukemi in close proximity encounters or against a boxer, but a modified version definitely works. I have used it and it works with practice.
