1. Primary response is the quick strip
2. If The Grip is tighter than a kung fu master, return to sender and strip with the C-Hand obtaining the Weapon in a forward grip with the edge in the reverse position. Follow up with the basic back cutting & stabbing options:

  • Bicep – Eliminates the struggle against the trapped / isolated limb.
