Pulling on the Ear - For Self Defense

This is a great technique for getting an attacker off of you as it is a soft target that causes lots of pain.

Example of Use

  • From an attacker that is closely grabbing you, slipping both arms up between theirs and grabbing the ear and chin you can pry the attacker from you. Pulling on the ear and pushing on the chin is a hard thing to stop without letting go of you.
    • This can be used similarly if the attacker is on top of you on the ground. This can help roll the attacker off of you.

Injury
As stated on the previous page the cartilage of the ear is connected to the head without much additional support. Like the punch to the ear there is a likely chance for high damage to the blood vessels of the ear and can even be ripped off. In either case the sensitivity of the ear will cause the attacker a deal of pain and quick to halt their aggression.
