As you know, attacking is the best defense. And there are some situations where you do not want to be aggressive to attack the attacker in order to defend yourself. At the same time, if you just do nothing, you will get hurt. So you have to do something.
If someone comes and grabs you, you have to get rid of that. For example, if that person is your ex-boyfriend and he does a front bear hug, you can understand the situation. So what can you do to defend yourself in this situation?
Let's watch this video. I'm going to mention the time, you can watch from there if you do not want to watch the full video. This is not my video and all video credit goes to Weekend AM Virgin Media Television.
From 4:23 to 5:25 Minutes
If someone grabs you like that, aka, front bear hug, you can use your forearms to push against the attacker's throat. You can use your other hand to support it. As soon as the attacker grabs you, and he has not got too close to you, you can use this technique to defend yourself.
In this situation, you can use another technique to defend against the front bear hug. You can grab the attacker's face with chin and head, and turn it to the side. You have to use both hands to execute this technique. When you control his head, you can easily get rid of this grip.
So what would you do in this situation? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post.
Stay safe. Always be happy!
