It’s surprisingly easy to dislocate a man’s shoulder. Using a move known in Japanese as Oogyaku, or “great reversal,” you just have to get him facedown, pull his arm backward and apply pressure to his shoulder with your hand, foot or knee. A small amount of force, and — snap — you’ve popped his arm out of the shoulder joint. I didn’t learn this maneuver at a self-defense or karate class. Instead, I picked it up taking a Ninja Training 101 lesson on Curious.com. Read the full story.
