When someone grabs your hands, collar, shoulder, or any part of the body, you can do a lot of things to defend yourself. The question is, how bad the situation is and what you want to do in that situation.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 150.
Every situation is different and you cannot fit one thing in every situation. What works in one situation, that might not work in another situation. When you fight for self defense, your move should be based on the situation.
If you want to get out of there without hurting the attacker pretty bad, your move would be different. In case there are multiple attackers, you have to consider that when defending yourself against grabbing.
It is because other attackers will not stand there like a statue. They will attack you and make it difficult to defend yourself. So you have to deal with other attackers, not just the one who grabs you. If there is only one attacker, you can do whatever you want. You do not need to worry about others.
Let's watch this video. This is not my video and all video credit goes to Shahabuddin karate.

Someone comes from behind and grabs your shoulders with both hands. You can grab the attacker's hands, turn and lock the attacker like this that you watch in the video.
What works against a person, that does not necessarily work against another person. Here strength and size matter. If the attacker is bigger and stronger, and he grabs your shoulders tight, you might not do well applying the technique.
When someone grabs your shoulders like this from behind, you can feel it without looking back, but you cannot see whether he is the only attacker or there are other attackers. Before making any more, it is better to look back to check it out.
If the attacker grabs your shoulders tight, you can move your leg back and turn. His both hands are already engaged, but your hands and legs are open. You can kick to the attacker's knee or hit to the groin. You can punch him or do palm strikes. Or, you can grab this hands to get rid of his grip.
In case there are multiple attackers, as soon as you turn, you can see that. So finishing with the first one, you can deal with others.
