Jiu-Jitsu Off The Mats: Self Defense With Pedro Sauer.
FRONT BEARHUG DOUBLE UNDERS COUNTER
(Applicable to MMA and self-defense)
Once Luis establishes control using the body lock, Pedro uses the palm of his left hand to push the bottom of Luis’ noise upward, creating instant pain to drive Luis’ face back, and providing some needed space. Now that Luis’ head isn’t against his chest, Pedro slides his right arm in against Luis’ neck and grips the area where the shoulder and triceps meet. He then places his left hand on top of his right to create the frame. Taking a step back with his left leg breaks the grip and creates space for Pedro to attack. Still gripping with his right hand, Pedro drives his right knee with great force into Luis’ solar plexus. Stunned by the blow and hunched over, Pedro wraps around Luis’ neck with his left arm, positions the bony part of his forearm against the Adam’s Apple, and pins Luis’ head to the left side of his body. With his right hand gripping over his left, Pedro squats upward to finish with a guillotine choke.
Frame – Creating an obstruction using the straightening of your arms that allows for space to be opened between yourself and your opponent or attacker.
