I have been a martial artist for too many years to remember. The full nelson is a dangerous move and even if you know what you're doing, you should not use that move at any time. You could seriously injure the person you do it to. I have had it done to me several times by street thugs and it has injured my spine. If you do it to others--stop it! Also do not let others do it to you. Only the smart will hear me.
Yeah I hear you. It is dangerous if one does not know how much pressure to apply, and how to safely get compliance. Personally I used to go for arm locks, a little pressure on the elbow joint usually sufficed. If it did not then they would usually want to fight, especially if they were on the marching powder. Still you can get out of it. Sorry to hear of you're spinal predicament. That is one thing I know of and I have based my SD on such a thing. I drop my weight and use what is available. I'm lucky that I know what I am doing
