In Part 7 of a 12-part BJJ instructional Series with 7-time World BJJ Champion and Coach to multiple world BJJ and MMA champions Rodrigo Comprido Medeiros shows how to escape from a headlock with training partner, 4th-degree black belt Marcelo Cazuza Kropotkin.

Hi. I'm Rodrigo Comprido. That's Marcelo Cazuza. We are here for the Greatmats Series.
I want to show you guys a self defense now – the escape from head lock.
My opponent catches me on the head lock. I will either control his elbow outside or inside, holding his wrist and turning my head inside.
Now what I'm going to do is I'm going to squat and stretch my back down. So I squat and my back is straight. I keep going in front of him and switch to the bear hug.
So if my head is on the right side of my body, I put my hook on the opposite side – on the left side of my body.
I keep pulling his hip close to me and push forward with my head. Hook... mount him. And now I'm safe.
