Most of the time, you can hit the attacker as a defense. But there are many situations where you do not want to hit instantly. Instead, you want to defend the attacker's strike and get rid of that.
When I talk about different techniques and sometimes I share alternatives techniques that are applicable in that particular situation. When you practice martial arts, you learn how to strike and defense as well as different self defense techniques based on reality.
I'd like to clearly mention that, what I share in this post, that's my opinion. You can have a different opinion about a particular thing. I may not always agree with you, but I respect your opinions. Today we are going to talk about specific self defense technique against hair grab.
Let's watch this video. I'm going to mention the specific time where you can watch this. This is not my video and all video credit goes to MEENAL SHAH.
From 2:03 to 2:36 Minutes
Here it shows that when the attacker grabs your hair, lean down and hit the attacker's hands with your palm. With all due respect, I do not think this is going to work to defend yourself against hair grab. The attacker grabs your hair tight, you hit his hands, but if he pulls your hair up, it is you who is going to get hurt.
Moreover, the attacker does not have to do much to control your movement. You are leaning down, the attacker can pull your hair down on the ground. What you can do in this situation is, grab the attacker's hand, then it would be difficult for him to control you. You can turn his hand and apply pressure. He cannot grab your hair any longer.
When the attacker grabs your hair behind, you can grab the attacker's hand and do the same thing. Then you can strike him and get out of there. If you have any doubt whether hair grab self defense technique that shows in the video works or not, try it yourself, you will get the answer.
