  • Front_HL_Counter_PeakOut_2of4

    You will often be on the receiving end of the basic front head lock, mainly because it is most commonly used...luckily, one of the easier headlocks to defeat and counter as well.
    Here we will be looking at the Peak Out counter with options to take your opponents back or secure side control.

  • Front_HL_Counter_KneeTap_3of4

    Sometimes you will have an opponent who has a very secure front head lock and will prevent you from performing the Peak Out counter. This leaves the door open for an awesome Short Fireman's with the knee tap...clear the elbow and now you have great side control.
    Stay connected to your opponent ...

  • Front_HL_Counter_WrongsidePO_4of4

    Sometimes we have a tendency to try and Peak Out in the wrong direction...that's ok, "There's an APP for that"...and luckily you are watching it. This is a fun one because it allows you the options of front head lock, wrist lock and kimura.
