Do you know what to do when someone grabs your hair? A hair grab may seem tricky at first to manoeuvre out of, especially when all your attention is focused on the actual pain and awkward positioning of your head at the time.

This simple yet effective self defence technique will show you how to get out of a hair grab with ease:

1. Pin you attackers hands to your head – This prevents the hair from being pulled.

2.  Step forward and turn your body towards your back leg.

3. Cross your attackers arms and either kick or knee towards the groin or belly.

4.  Break off and raise your arms to defend yourself or Run if possible.

That’s it!
