In nelson lock, the attacker grabs you from behind and his hands would go up under your arms and put pressure on your neck behind. It seems very difficult to get rid of this lock. If you try to move and defend yourself, the attacker can put more pressure on your neck.
As a result, it would be more difficult to get rid of this. To defend yourself from this, first of all, do not let the attacker apply pressure. You are locked like this because of your arms. The easier way to release from nelson lock is to raise your both hands up and sit down quickly.
When you raise your arms, the attacker cannot put more pressure and you can get down fast as a defense. This is one of the easiest and effective self defense techniques that you can use against nelson lock.
There are some other self defense techniques that you can also apply to defend yourself against nelson lock. It depends on the strength and opportunity you have at the moment.
You can raise your hands up and then grab the attacker's neck. Then you can use your body to throw him on the ground. You can apply this technique. But sometimes the attacker understands that you are going to grab his neck, so he moves his neck back. For this reason, you might not grab his neck and apply this technique.
The most difficult situation in the nelson lock is when the attacker puts pressure on your neck and bend you. This is painful. So make your move fast in order to defend yourself. Do not give the attacker more time. Your quick response can change the whole situation.
