Opponent reaches around your arms and grabs you in a bearhug.
Pull your hands back to your side and push your hips forward, creating a gap between you and your attacker.

Sharply thrust your seat back into your opponent's stomach as you shoot your hands straight out, breaking the hold.

Grab your opponent's wrist with your left hand as you extend your right arm...
...and thrust the tip of your elbow into his/her ribs.
Shift your hips back and down as you grab his/her shoulder. Pull his/her arm across your body, lift with the hips...
...and throw your opponent over your hip.
Finish with a strike or a submission hold.

Practice at your own risk!
