Standing Headlock Defense

(Combatives Lesson Nos. 11 and 20)

The back hand holds the Bad Guy's hip and will pull the hip in a spiraling motion as you sit

Block Knee - keeps the knee from hitting you in the face, also helps with guiding the momentum

Setup Step - toes pointing in facilitates the next step, prevents from sitting on the knee

2nd Step in front also with the foot pointed in

Sit - hand pulls over straight leg

if you need help with the spiraling motion ask an instructor on your next visit

Sharpen your reflexes and don't hesitate if caught in a headlock.

Step - Sit - Spin

Focus on making this movement smooth and allow the momentum to work for you.
