Basic Self Defense Moves : How to Escape From a Kung Fu Front Head Lock
Hi my name is Dan Schmidt from the Chinese
Martial Arts Center and for expertvillage.com. In this clip we are going to be showing you
self defense against the front head lock. So if somebody ever grabs you front wise and
twist your head down. Like this. The first thing you want to do is use the hand closes
to them, punch straight to the groan. In some cases they would let go but if not you want
to grab with your opposite hand right were there hands are just to keep you stable. Hit
to the groan. You try to move in close if they are not in close enough as it begins.
Right from here as they loosen there grip from the punch you want to grab around there
knee like this and then take the other hand around the waist like you are giving them
a hug. You are going to use the shoulder, lean it, and you are going to do a pressing
lifting action so they fall on there back. So as I press in with my left shoulder and
lift they go straight down. It is very important when you do that that you don’t want to feel
your self off balance. If you do feel off balance as suggest hitting again or try to
loosen up cause eventually they would let go but, if you get the chance that you are
very stable so they grab okay you punch, you grab, you are stable you just lean in with
the shoulder and pull up and straight on there back the go. So once again they grab just
hit straight to the groan, grab around, lean in with shoulder, and lift up. It doesn’t
matter how big and strong they are it is all a momentum from the lifting and pressing action.
That is self defense against the front headlock.
