Most Efficient Way to Get out of a Simple Headlock Without Causing a Scene
A constant problem I have is that I don't like street fights in general regardless of how good a fighter I am or ever will be. They are stupid, it is always better to avoid the fight, and they can be sorted out in other ways. It is important, however, to stand up for yourself of course.
Let me give you an example of a situation that might come up:
Say you are at a bar with some friends a little drunk. A bigger guy starts talking smack for no reason and begins to push you around and act aggressive. You don't want to fight even though you probably would win in the end yet you don't wanna seem like a ***** and completely back down.
So you start to talk back to him and push him away. He then gets more aggressive and puts you in a basic headlock. What is the most efficient way to diffuse this situation? Obviously one can straight out fight him but that isn't the point. I am talking about how do you get out of the hold if it is tight and he is strong and then put him in a position where he will back down?
Exactly. If a guy pushes you, he just broke down the touching barrier. He starts to come toward you again, when he gets within punching range im going right hook, left hook groin kick.
Ill avoid fights at all cost, but you touch me ill collect your ******* teeth.
I'd say if you get in a head lock, by some freak accident in nature, go for the groin, eyes, throat or grab some skin and start twisting that shit like your trying to rip it off. When they let go I want you to put your head hand to his temple until he hits the ground.

suplex is good if your strong, i would wrap my arms over gripping his far hand hug him into me and tani otoshi him. the wrist grab is so he can't stop his fall and his head can bounce on the floor. i could so you videos for days, but i think i'll stop now
-Brace his opposite (inside) knee with your outside hand (depends on which side he's headlocking you also you will most likely need to bend over to do this)
-use your other hand to hold around his back along his waist
-Step in between his legs with your outside leg, as if you are trying to look towards him (and you still will be bracing his knee).
-Simultaneously sit to your butt and pull with your hand behind his back/push with the hand bracing his knee
-He will roll to the ground and fall, you will end up in mount (in the video this guy has side control, if you do the move you will end up with one leg over his body). he will still have the headlock but all you need to do is frame up on his neck, get his arm, then armbar. Like So:
That's the very pretty way of using BJJ to defend the headlock. I can't find a video of the move but it looks really cool and it works. The guy will look very bad...
There is a simple way of making him let go... or else look foolish... without fighting too...
whatever you do, dont react like most do... by trying to pull your head out, you look like a dog stuck with its head in a can..
You gotta go the other way...
1-take a knee, stepping forward... doesnt matter which one... basically you need to get your center of gravity beneath his.
2-now straighten your back, so you are not leaning...
3-then using your legs, stand up.
he's gotta let go or else he will go for a ride.
if you want to add humiliation, dont allow him to let go ...while you do (1), grab both of his legs behind the knee and lock your arms up.
