Escaping underhook control

If your opponent manages to secure a really deep under-hook when in the clinch, he gains control of that side of your body. When I find myself in this predicament, I place my elbow between my opponent's neck and shoulder, let my arm go limp, and then yank my arm free.

Albert has a tight under-hook on my right side.

I back all the way out.

To free my right arm, I bring my right elbow up and wedge it between Albert's neck and shoulder.

Keeping my right arm relaxed, I begin to back out and pull my arm free.

I back all the way out.
