Re: How to stop head butts

What was the maai? Head butts are usually very close range.

IMHO, roll the head like a tenkan off the attack line bringing your elbow to the rear of the head or the temple. Or, slip off the attack line and irimi with the elbow to the bridge of the nose. Keep your hands up and elbows down unless striking.
