What is a grappling technique?
In pahuyuth, a grappling technique is a manipulation of the opposing body, which, using the lever laws, causes the opponent or an opponent’s body part to be fixated.
Grappling techniques are hardly used in the Pahuyuth because they require constant control of the opponent. Binding resources to a single enemy can be a major drawback in multi-opponent situations. As part of the training (see LING LOM), grappling techniques are therefore mainly learned in order to be able to free oneself from them.
