Counter to the Rear Headlock

The counter to a rear headlock is used when the aggressor approaches from the rear and puts his right arm around your neck, bending you forward and locking your head against his hip.

Technique

~ Bend forward at the waist. The aggressor faces in the same direction as the student and places his right arm around the student’s neck and his forearm across the student’s throat.
~ With both hands, grasp the aggressor’s wrist and forearm at the radial nerve and pull down to clear your airway. Once the airway is clear, tuck your chin to protect your airway and to prevent the aggressor from re-applying the choke.
~ Take a 12- to 15-inch step forward with your right foot to off balance your aggressor. At the same time reach over your aggressor’s right shoulder with your left hand. Once off balancing has been achieved, grab any part of the aggressor’s face with the left hand and pull back
while rising to a standing position.
~ With your right hand, execute a hammer fist to the aggressor’s exposed throat. For safety, the aggressor should bring his free arm up to protect his throat. In addition, contact can be made on your aggressor’s chest when executing this technique during practice. See figure 2-42.
