The West Maneuver is a recurring tactical move executed by the Team, Outsiders and the Justice League. It involves at least two people, wherein one gets down on all fours directly behind an opponent while the other(s) hit the enemy from the front, causing the enemy to fall. This allows them to knock down an opponent who could otherwise take the blow without falling.
