Some attackers are so resistant to pain that it’s very difficult to deal with them, says kenka karate founder Ray Geraneo, who also works as an auxiliary police officer. “You can do a lot of good things like kicks to the knee and such, but police officers have been known to empty their revolvers into people high on PCP, yet they keep coming. If a .38 isn’t stopping them, it’s not very likely a punch or kick will."
Geraneo’s solution? “You move out of the way of a technique, then close in, grab and tie up [your attacker] with a head lock, arm lock, leg lock or choke. Once you take the opponent down, grappling becomes a control maneuver. [But] grappling doesn’t always mean going to the ground. Many times the finishing move might be an arm or leg break.”
