Full Nelson Escapes


 Share

Recommended Posts

I figured this might be a cool post for you wrestling and martial art fans out there...

It seems that the common belief is that a properly established full nelson is virtually impossible to get out of. But there are many efficient and effective ways to counter / escape it. If you want me to post a couple ways just let me know...

But I am looking for other people's ideas / strategies.

And does anyone have any links to other reversals for other stuff (this i do not have)

:cool:

Pilates and yoga might help? :D

I've done some greco-roman rasslin, it was fun. When you're a big person you're afraid of falling down, I was taken down and it was fun.

I mean when you're new to the sport of olympic style wrestling the landing is the most important even with professional wrestling.

gee, shocking replies from the guys at a tech forum. ;)

reach around, grab at least one finger, break it/peel it off. if necessary, put your hands on your forehead, tuck your elbows in/down and twist hard or make wide rotations with your hips.

not a fun hold to be in at all, but there's always a way out.

Easy you not looking at a full nelson, not even a half nelson the reason this picture came up was because the wrestlers last name is nelson!!

as they are illegal in real wrestling, only half nelsons apply to the rules !

What the heck is a full nelson ??

when you facing the persons back you put you arms under their arm pits and up around the shoulder and wrap you fingers interlocking behind their neck

and to escape you kick your leg back and kick them in the balls

problem solved

Being in a full nelson is not a good place to be :(

As it was said earlier in this thread, try and swing yourself around and make it VERY hard on the guys fingers. Once his fingers are too sore, he may let go.

Full nelson banned from wrestling for reason it could break someones neck. Here are 2 ways you can try.

Full Nelson Locked in you can still move your forearms.

1. Break it by reaching to the back of your neck with your hand. (Grab, ) 2 or 3 fingers and then bend them back , when you have good control of the fingers, shoot your arm out straight to the side of you . Then turn into him make sure you (keep pressure on those fingers).

i guess you can also try to dig your nails into his fingers.

2. Bend your body foward, Lift your right leg up (a few inches off the ground)this relieves some pressure now jump back, and smash your elbow in his face.

Also if there anybody infront of you trying to Stab you or punch you jump up and kick him. then go back to the guy that got you in the full nelson.

If these dont work just try not to let him get it keep you arms down before he even gets a chance to lock it, Otherwise i dont know.

If the guy does it on wrestling or whatever the ref can get em for it. Also you guys have coaches and instructers ask them.
