Have you ever seen anyone grabbing the collar and being aggressive?
You might see bullies grabbing the collar of the victim saying all sort of negative things. Sometimes you might see two guys grabbing each other collar of the shirt, pulling and shouting. Let's talk about what to do if someone grabs the collar of your shirt.
When someone grabs your collar, that means he/she is close enough to get attacked. If he grabs your collar with one hand, that implies his one hand is already engaged but you have two free hands and you can do a lot of things. Let's watch this video. Well, I don't understand the language, If you know the language, you can understand what is said on this video.
If someone grabs the collar and his elbow is not bend, you can grab the wrist of his hand and turn. Then put pressure on his hand. You can get rid of collar grab. Now if the attacker grabs your collar and punches you, first defend the punch, then apply this technique to release.
When the attack bends his elbow and grabs your collar, the first technique will not work, you cannot apply pressure on his hand like this as you do before. So what can you do? It seems a very difficult situation, but it is not. You just hold his elbow and turn it up, you will see the magic. The attacker will not be able to hold your collar anymore.
You know when bullies are there, most of the time you see them as a group. If someone grabs your collar, other bullies are there as well. So, they might come and attack you. In this situation, you can use the first guy who grabs your collar as a shield to defend yourself.
How to use the first attacker as a shield for self defense
To use the first attacker as a shield, you can make a little change in the technique. The moment the guy grabs your collar and pulls you, place your hand on his elbow, hold and turn it upward. Then move behind the attacker holding his elbow with one hand and grab his neck arond his throat.
Now you control him. If other bullies try to attack you, they cannot do that as you are using the first attacker as a shield.
