When applying a sleeper hold first approach your opponent from behind. Take your dominant arm and wrap it around the neck of your opponent. Grab the bicep of your free arm with your dominant hand. Use your other hand to press the opponent's head forward toward the elbow of your dominant arm. Immediately relax your hold when your opponent goes limp, but do not unlock your arms.
A sleeper hold is a technique for disabling an attacker that is used in self-defence. To do a sleeper hold, get behind your opponent and wrap your right arm around his/her neck. Press your bicep against the right side of the neck and the inner bone of your forearm against the left. Apply pressure by grabbing your left bicep near the elbow with your right hand, and use your left hand to press your opponent's head towards the crook of your right elbow. You should try to take your opponent to the ground during this process. When you feel your opponent go limp, usually in 5-10 seconds, immediately release pressure, but do not take your arms out of position. This is a dangerous technique which can lead to injury and even death, you are advised to take extreme caution and apply reasonable judgement when doing it.
