One of the simplest moves is  to grab the wrist.  By grabbing the little finger and ring finger with single hand, and also the middle and index finger with the other and bend the wrist forward.

If you can’t touch the wrist, hit it with a fist or with a finger between the collarbones or into their Adam’s apple. This will take him a long time to gain his senses back.

The most effective way is to attack the groin area. It may take long time for them to gain their consciousness and also more time for you to escape.
