How to Defend against Side Headlock

Defend against Side Headlock

Side Headlock Defense

This attack is very common in the streets, so here we have one of the many options to counter-attack this kind of aggression. He is going to come and pull me down. As he pulls, I won’t resist. I’ll come in and help him to pull, and bring myself as close as I can to him to protect my neck. I’m going to strike him to the groin, climb behind, and look for a vulnerable target. I can attack his eye. I can pull his hair. I can attack him underneath the nose, or if he is facing away, I can attack his throat. In any case, I’m going to lift him up and rise up, make him look at the ceiling, then add a 35-degree step and slam his head into the pavement. Right between my legs. As far as I can from his feet. I’m going to hit him one more time on the pavement and open a gap.




Please. Try to imagine that he came from that direction, or that direction he is pulling you from, or he is coming from your left shoulder. You should understand that you should practice it from both sides. But, in any case, we’re going to get pulled forward and hit him in the groin. One. Again, and one. Again, and one. It’s important for all of you who are wondering whether I should hit him with a fist or not. Hit him with the palm into the groin. Just in case it didn’t work you can grab something, too. And, one. Take the other hand, snake it behind his back, close. Let’s for now just stick the middle finger underneath his nose into the bridge of his nose and stand up. Keep that elbow as tight as you can to your body and this hand as curled as you can keep it.
