BREAKING ALMOST ANY LOCK WITH THE "BREAKING LOCK" TECHNIQUE

Shaolin Tantui

How would you Counter an Opponent Locking your Arm from Behind?



The technique of “Breaking Lock” looks simple, but its applications can be very profound. Would you believe that you may apply it to break almost any lock?

However, breaking the lock executed with the pattern “Fierce Tiger Returns to Plain”, which is similar to the Full Nelson Lock, requires some modification of the “Breaking Lock” technique.
