Neck Hold

This is another of the advanced CJers’ holds. There is no easy way to get into it. The most obvious ways – a roll up the arm behind the head, tossing to catch, and rolling from the forehead to the neck, are all advanced moves.

Despite all that, this hold is extremely simple. Simply bend over at the waist, scrunch your shoulders up, and hold your head up so you’re looking straight ahead. The ball is cushioned at all sides – by the spine, the base of the head, and the shoulder muscles.

The image here is of myself doing a neck hold with a 5” ball – it’s not a trick of perspective…
