Re: How to stop head butts

Best way to avoid a headbutt is to either be too far away, or too close. If you can't get far away, have your head right up against his. Body lock, or wrap your hands behind his neck (fingers NOT laced) with your elbows down, together, and pressed against his chest. Pull down on his kneck with all your weight and move your hips back (semi sprawl). Then just respond to his energy by manipulating his neck or torso. Once the time is right, you can push away or torque him into a fall. (if your opponent knows this methodolgy, however, things get more complicated...)
