When you practice some techniques, you feel like it will work. But you will realize the reality when you are being attacked. The purpose of this post is not to criticize someone or specific martial art. We will talk about whether it will work in real life combat or not.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 140. Every situation is different and you cannot fit one thing in every situation. What works in one situation, that might not work in another situation. When you fight for self defense, your move should be based on the situation.
It is not the problem of blocking, the problem is using the wrong move for self defense. Let's watch this video. This is not my video and all video credit goes to Shahabuddin karate.

If someone grabs your shirt, he will usually grab it tight. So if you block like this that you watch in the video, I don't know whether you will be able to remove the attacker's hand from the collar or not, but you might end up tearing your shirt.
You can do this block to defend punch or any other strike. But it would not be that effective to remove the attacker's hand from the collar of your shirt. Ask your friend to grab your collar and do it yourself. You will realize it out on your own.
You can make a lot of move in order to release from the color grab. You can grab the attacker's hand, turn, hyperextend, and put pressure. The attacker will have no option except let you go.
What do you think about the technique that shows in this video? Please feel free to leave your comment below. By the way, when we talk about the effectiveness of some techniques, we only mean that technique that we share in the post. It does not mean other techniques of that YouTube channel are not effective. You will find some good self-defense videos in this channel as well.
Thank you so much for reading this post. That's it for now. Stay safe. Always be happy!
