Hello, Stephan i really thank you for doing my request keep up the good work.
I saw the effective ness but we cant say that you can use that way to all the dudes in the street usually people who only do that is a big strong man.But for me if i got the opportunity to kick his balls in the back or step on his feet i might have a chance to escape

It’s actually a move from Catch wrestling

Nelson's a nasty thing. When I was a fifteen year old practicing judo I was challenged by an aikido black belt, then in the 80's they were a bit tougher in aikido than now, the guy was older, bigger, a full grown man while I was a skinny teen, but quite fast I took the guy to the ground, he wasn't very good there but was heavier and stronger. Fortunatelly I managed to pull a full nelson on, that was like almost the end, he fought valiantly for a minute or so to get out of it, but find no solution and I finally tapped him out. Oh I was the proudest kid in the gym then πŸ™‚

Izzy says:

Does the same principle apply for the school yard bully restraint where they come up and instead restrain both biceps like they're trying to lift you up instead of doing a full Nelson?
