Article: Martial Arts Expert Explains Neck-Breaking Takedown
Posted 9/29/2010 2:57pm [from
This news article entitled
"Martial Arts Expert Explains Neck-Breaking Takedown"
includes information from and video of Stephen Fasen (4th dan,
) on how a police officer's arm-bar takedown maneuver may have caused severe injuries to an 84-year old suspect. From the article: "[The arm-bar] turns the body over, and makes them available," [Fasen] said. "The body then pivots, catching the elbow, pivoting on the ball of the foot. When the knee goes down, his balance is forward. Everything goes to the ground."
