Trump has shown his menacing power-move handshake to the world via the tight 19-second grip he recently gave Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Upon the POTUS’ release of his hand, the visiting leader was seen with a noticeable wince (or eye-roll? We can’t be sure).
Trump’s unique hard-pulling movement that forces the other person toward him, apparently his way of showing his dominance, has since been brought to focus, leaving many to wonder: “How does one actually counter the dreaded Trumpshake?”
Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy recently released an instructional video on Tuesday teaching people how to fend off Trump’s notorious handshake.
In the clip, the host pointed out that the technique is not necessarily aimed specifically on Trump, but for similar attempts from other people.
“I’m not suggesting you do this to the president,” said the host. “But if someone’s trying to over-dominate you and pull you into the handshake, you have to go with it.”
He then demonstrated how he was able to wrap his free arm around the another guy’s elbow during a handshake, snaring him in a tight “goose neck” wrist lock.
