A better escort

The escort position has been taught at police and corrections academies for many years, but the escort finger lock takedown may be a better option

The escort position has been taught at police and corrections academies across the U.S. for many years. Traditionally it is used to move or separate people, or to set up various control holds or takedowns.

Typically, the escort hold involves contacting the elbow at the tricep tendon, while grabbing control of the wrist bone or the hand at the wrist. Once contact has been made, the person grabbed can be pulled slightly off balance and moved from one point to another or controlled in some way. As it is traditionally taught, grabbing at the wrist or hand many times does not allow for a full and complete grip and could be more escapable.
