Self Defense: Headlock Escapes

I came across this demonstration for escaping standing headlocks, and they look pretty good. I like the detailed explanation of each step, especially the emphasis on posture and manipulating your opponents head.

With your opponent holding you in a tight headlock with their left arm:

  1. Chop or punch the groin with your left hand.

  2. Grab the opponents right wrist with your left hand. Put your right hand on the left side of his face, stick your fingers in their eye and push their head back and away.

  3. As you push the head back wind up your right knee and knee the opponent in back of their left knee. At the same time look upwards and lift your head up out of the headlock, so you don't go down to the ground with your opponent.
