Bear hug from the rear, arm pinned. Slow. Grabbed. He grabs, first thing I'm going to drop my center of gravity way forward, become very difficult to lift. I'm going to hit him, maybe even hit him here. From here I'm going to shift and start to strike his groin until his hands, the minute his hands open up, elbow to the mid-section, elbow to the face with rotation to fight. Punch. You make kick, and space.
