Can’t Finish From The Front Headlock Position?

Picture this, you get to the front headlock position, you attempt a quick guillotine knowing from the very start it won’t get you anywhere, your opponent twitches, and you instantly transition to another “more dominant” position like mount, the back, or side control. Was that really the best decision?

The submission won’t find itself.

Securing the front headlock position and not being sure what to do with it is like giving an actual caveman an iPhone and expecting him to enroll in this course… it’s very unlikely he’ll find the first lesson, the same way it can be very unlikely you’ll submit your opponent if you keep transitioning from position to position.

Learn To Hunt.

Sloan is an expert in making life miserable for his opponents by hunting the submission from the front headlock (as seen in his latest bouts at F2W) and he’s here to teach you how you can make life miserable for your opponents too. Learn the fundamentals of the front headlock, the caveman necktie, and everything else in between.

Amending my review
Regardless of my frugal nature
This instructional is still giving me gifts as I’m choking people left & right
Most notably with the pillow choke
That concept alone has made me better at getting he tap.
I salute you Sloan

I took one star off because of value, I say this because it’s brief. The instructor mentions that lessons may be added to this course in the future, if that is the case then the price is more palatable. Other than that slaon gives a great account of not only his caveman necktie but also finishing details that will make a massive difference in your ability to finish.

Fantastic take on how to control a human by his head. Sloan is a beast and a great instructor.
