Can You Release Full Nelson Hold This Way?


If someone grabs and locks you, you have to know how to release yourself. There are different locks and full nelson is one of them that seems difficult to get rid of the attacker's hold.

Today we are going to take a look at a specific technique to release full nelson and I will share my opinions. If I say a specific technique is not effective, that does not mean other techniques showed by the same instructor are not effective for self-defense.

Let's watch this video. I like and respect Dr Mark Phillips. He makes awesome videos about self-defense and martial arts. So what can you do against full nelson hold?

If you put pressure down on your arms, I think there is a little chance you can break the grip as you watch in the video. The attacker can put pressure on your neck and make it hard for you to do that. Or, that will not be effective if you deal with a stronger and bigger attacker.

Putting your weight down works very well if the attacker intends to lift you up. He cannot do that or he will find it hard to do that. In case you break the attacker's grip, you can put one leg behind the attacker. That's good. You can do different things from that position.

You can strike him. And you can also lift him up and throw him on the ground. If this is something serious, you take that seriously and make some damage to the attacker.

Here I'm sharing my opinions. What do you think about this? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you for reading this post. That's it for now. Stay safe. Always be happy!
