Standing Side Headlock
Assuming that he has you with his left arm, first you have to anchor your right leg behind his left leg. As you are anchoring reach your right arm around his body up too his right shoulder and pull him back. This will disrupt his centre line. With your left hand begin to attack soft tissue areas, eyes, throat, groin.

Well I was in a situation with some friends, and we were just being guys, and one gets me in a headlock and starts dragging me backwards simultaniously. As I was being dragged I was in awe, realizing even with my training, in this situation, all I could do was wait it out. It was interesting.

I gues I came to this way late...but I'm surprised no one mentioned any type of head
movement to protect your throat to keep yourself from being choked out. A simple method I have been taught and practice was to immediately turn your face toward the attacker which takes the pressure from your throat to the neck muscles. Depending on how your positioned you may also get some extra protection for your face

Real nice thread.

I disagree that taking a fight to the ground is bad, I myself, unless I'm against multiple opponents, almost always take a fight to the ground.

It depends on ones body type however, retards can tell you size doesn't matter, and feed you all this ancient art bull, but the fact is if your a stong enough individual you can easily gain an advantage by taking a fight to the ground.

But to headlocks, I'll have to explain the way I deal with them, and I'm a heavy guy, so if you can't do this, I'm sorry it's the only ways I know. However I'd like to add that growing up I was a small guy, I was somewhat unusually strong, but not heavy, and not tall, I still managed to pull these tactics off.

Standing up, easy, grab whoever is holding you in like a bearhug kind of hold, just wrap your arms around their torso. Once this is done, make sure your drip is firm, and just run around, force the both of you around, smash against walls or other objects (of course not headfirst or your just going to hurt yourself and soften his impact).

On the ground, well this is the only position I hate being in when a fight is on the ground, usually I try to get to my feet and keep my opponent on the ground, it's gonna hurt, and your going to be arched over face first against the ground so it'll probablly hurt, but this is when you struggle away, strike your opponent if it's a must, but generally if your halfway on your feet they will let go so they can get out of a position where you have the advantage. This is more of a phsycological tactic than a physical one.

METHOD 1-First thing you do is hit them in the groin, then grapb them by face and slam them backwards, if necesary pick up a leg to make it easier.
METHOD 2-reach around and grab them by the hair, then pull their head back and hit them in the throat or chest.

#97968 - 09/09/04 01:22 PM Re: how do u get out of a headlock?

Here's another technique. If done properly it can be done in a fraction of a second. Say the guy has you in a headlock using his right arm.

1. grab his wrist with your left hand and twist downwards slightly while at the same time pressing your chin down to relieve the pressure to your throat.
2. Put your right hand on his elbow.
3. With a hard pull of your left hand and push of your right hand, force your head out of the lock.

Continuing the movement you will now have his arm in a lock position where you can either knee his elbow, kick his knee etc etc. You may get a slight friction burn on your head or ear, but that's better than getting strangled.
