Escape Front Strangle - White Belt Traditional Jujitsu

Escape Front Strangle (Breaking Grip)

This technique is used when your attacker strangles you from the front with their arms straight.

Your opponent strangles you from the front with their arms locked straight.

Step back with your right foot (this will cause your upper-body to twist and loosen the strangle slightly). Now place your right hand in front of your face to prevent your attacker from head-butting you.

Raise your left hand straight up into the air.

Using your left hand, punch through your attackers arms to break the strangle.

Bring your left arm back up and strike with an elbow to your attackers face.

Finally strike with a back-fist to the side of your attackers head.

Escape Front Strangle (Duck Method)

This technique is used when your attacker strangles you from the front but does not have their arms locked straight.

Your opponent strangles you from the front but does not have their arms locked out straight.

Step back with your right foot (this will give you more space required for the rest of the technique).

Now take your head down between your attackers arms keeping your hands up to block any knee strikes. Don't worry if you think your attacker will keep the strangle on - you have more strength in your neck than they do in their wrists.

Finish by bringing your head up to the right.
