Move Background

Escorumelo is a name sometimes given to the rising headbutt (from a low position towards the opponent's chin).

Step by step guide

  • This is a less playful headbutt that moves in an upward direction.
  • The head goes under the attack and comes up hitting the bottom of the chin.
  • This gives it the same application as an uppercut combined with the weight of the entire body rising along with the head.
