Wrist Hold:

Inside twist out

This technique is applied with a full body action; the victim must move forward into the wrist hold and snap the hand up and out as the elbow is "pushed" under the grip of the attacker.  If the attacker is pulling with the grip, then the movement forward to push must be greater than that of the attacker's pulling force.
