Coach Hillary Kigar shares a tip she picked up while listening to a lecture delivered by esteemed distance running coach Jack Daniels.
Use when: Whenever it’s available
Stand with feet in staggered stance. With elbow locked out on dominant arm and palm flat, swing arm directly for attacker’s ear.
Rubin says: “Not only are you cupping their ear and hurting the eardrum, but the palm is hitting the temple, which is an equilibrium pressure point. If they don’t see this coming, this is a super-valuable tactic.”
