Havent ever used this in a fight but curious about it's effectiveness for openning the way to followup techniques.
Basic situation; hand (or even arm) behind opponent's head, quick, strong headbutt aimed at nose using the hand to multiply the force of the headbutt.
Maybe follow up with some knee strikes, then take it into a grapple.
Anyone with experience feel like sharing?

Only been in a handful of "real" fights in the past few years...when I say real I mean the other guy and myself really didn't like each other and were actually trying to hurt each other. I was fighting this guy much bigger than me and he had me in a bear-hug with both arms pinned at my sides and my feet off the ground. I hit him as hard as I could in the face with the top of my head and he let go, then I punched him in the neck and it got broken up. Anyway, I know you said "hand behind the head, open up for grappling," but that was my real life experience witht using a headbut...it worked well.

Best head butt I ever used wasn't the typical to the nose scenario. I had pulled the guys head back and wanted to attack his throat but my other hand was tied up and I was very close so I head butted his adam's apple fairly lightly, not enough to crush the windpipe, I more or less just dropped my head onto his throat. Stopped him right away.

I tend to use headbutting differently than most might in that I use it to off balance more so than as an attack per se'. It's still an impact blow but I don't retract it afterward.

It's like this; anyone use a stiffarm in football? Or a palm heel to push someone's chin back and upset their balance?? It's the same deal. It works in the clinch when you have a control tie up.

Interesting but how well would it work against a taller opponent?

The best way to deliver a headbutt is grabbing the shoulders and pulling the guy forward as you drive your forehead into his face. And as said earlier if they got you bearhugged with your arms pinned.

As for headbutting a taller opponent just go for it if have to really. Headbutts are effective but not the best thing to do since all your opponet as to do is stick his elbow out when you go to headbutt him and your probally going to win the fight for him.

Headbutts are used a lot in Yang Family Tai Chi straight, top of the head and in a "wiping" motion,often (as in "Brush Knee") to get the opponent to retract his head and open the heart meridian.

I can't say I speak from experience, but I'd want to control the head by grabbing the neck/back of head rather than the shoulders. It'd stop the neck whipping back and taking some of the force out of the blow too, I'd imagine.

THat whill probally work as well. I just know if you have control of his head its best to use elbow strikes, knee strikes, and punches rather than head butting. Also you can throw them off balance really good and send them to the ground.

If you grab hold of his hair and pull him as you headbutt that hurts much worse.

Also grab hold of an ear or ears and twist to control them as you slam your head into their face that is really effective.
