1. An attacker at 12 o'clock grabs you in a bear hug leaving your arms free.
2. Step your right foot back to 6 o'clock into a left neutral bow facing 12 o'clock, simultaneously cock your right hand at chest level as a half-fist (palm up) and execute a left inverted backfist to your attacker's left temple or jaw.
3. Grab your attacker's hair with your left hand, utilizing an achored elbow to expose the neck.
4. Shift into a left forward bow as you torque your right hand and execute a right snapping half-fist (now palm down) to your attacker's throat.
5. Cross out towards 4:30.
