Trapping your opponent is a great self-defense mechanism. It can prevent him from striking you and gives you the upper hand in the fight. However, although there are many different ways of trapping your opponent, not all of them are efficient.
An important aspect to consider is the height of your opponent.
For example, one of the most popular ways to trap your opponent is to grab him from behind the neck. However, if he is much larger then you, it’s probably not the best tactic since he will be able to easily escape this position.

One of the best ways for you to trap your attacker in a street fight is to get a good leverage. Your opponent’s clothes can be considered as a great leverage for you to use to your advantage. Try getting a good grip on your attacker’s shirt and use it to your advantage by trying to choke him.
At the same time, you can trap him in a position where you have the upper hand and can easily strike him. While many people don’t think about it, clothes can be a great leverage when it comes to self-defense.
By using your attacker’s shirt against him, you can easily move it around his head and blind him, choke him or tighten your hold on to trap him. All of these moves are to be used if you feel your life is danger.
