Henry A December 9, 2016 at 12:27 am Log in to Reply Hey Rich! Usually if they are holding the lapel behind the head you can push the elbow and get your head up. It depends though on exactly where their group is and how far over it is. A lot of times they are using that grip to set up the cross collar choke when you pop your head up so you need to make sure that they don’t have the other hand inside the collar on the lapel when you go to pop your head up or else be ready to grab two hands over their arms and do your cross collar choke defense. Hope that helps buddy Mohamad H July 11, 2017 at 8:08 am Log in to Reply I am unable to clear my head especially when the guy holding my head & has his elbow close to his body Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
