In the video below I’m showing a good way to get out of the headlock. This is a very common attack in a street fight and also common in bullying of kids.
I like this type of headlock defense because it’s pretty simple and works like a charm. Even if you mess it up and the guy falls on top of you the chances of you getting hurt or stuck is pretty slim to none.
I picked this move up a while back just kind of playing with some old Gracie Jiu-Jitsu basics moves and kind of added in my own touch. We teach this a lot at Ivey League MMA for both the kids and adult classes. Check it out and see what you think.
