We're doing defense against a hair grab from the side with a pull.

He came and he pulled. The first thing I'm going to do is close the gap as close as I can to make it more difficult for him to pull. At the same time I'm going to strike him with an elbow. After this elbow I'm going to strike him open hand to the groin and from here I can either hit him with my palm or I can hit him with the fist. It doesn't really matter. And, of course, separation.

Please, let's do it together. Thank you. Small step. We look first. One. Sorry. Big step. We look first. Huge step. One. Again. One. Again. Left hand is elbow. Right hand, protection to face. One. Again. One. Again. One. Stay there. Right hand hit him in the groin with a big pivot.

Again. One and two. One. Two. Again. One. Two. Again. One. Two. With your legs down there. Bring your hand back to your face. Use your quad muscles, elevate punch.

Again. And one, two, three. Again. And one, two, three. Let's do the whole thing smooth, slow in one. And one. Again a little quicker. And one. Great.

Please pull. Slow first. Slow, slow. Again. One more time. Good. Now let's start bringing up the speed a little bit because if we figured out everything doesn't figure out. So let's go a little quicker. Very nice. Again. One more time again. Very good.
