Hello! In this article I’m going to give you some advices in order to survive from a headlock from the side and what to do to improve your Krav Maga techniques.

The attacker comes from the side (e.g. your left side) and grab (headlock) your neck in order to take you down.

Let’s see step by step how to do:

    1. Stabilize yourself: you have to put your foot over the foot of the attacker (e.g. the attacker headlock you from the left so you have to put your right foot over his right foot).
    2. Hit the attacker groin with your right hand and come with your left hand between your head and the attacker’s head.

  1. With your left hand grab his hair, ears, eyes, nose, beard, mouth and bring his head back. You haven’t to look at him otherwise he can grab you again and move to the ground but you have to stay straight and hit him with your right hummerfist.
  2. Take the attacker down pushing his head.

Now I would like to give you some tips to improve your Krav Maga technique:

  • If you push your attacker from his chest you will struggle to move him. Instead if you push him placing your index finger under the nose you can move him easier! So this pressure point is very important in Krav Maga, especially for women defense, because it allows you to control all the neck of the attacker. Moreover, if you move this point parallel to the ground and you push it the attacker will go down.
