Russ Jarmesty, a practical Jujutsu instructor who spent 15 years as a nightclub doorman introduced the front kick in issue 1 and this month he focusses on slaps.

As a doorman the slap had many advantages – a greater range, less chance of being accused of using more than “reasonable force” but above all he explains how the slap or open handed strike could be employed from many different angles.

Russ describes some of the situations in which the strikes were used and also introduces some drills that can be utilised.
