Video of complete move:
This technique works best against an opponent moving South, either to attack, as shown here, or because you’ve pushed him North and he reacts by resisting South.

If you are unable to grab over your opponent’s shoulder because he holds his head in tight you can also apply this technique by grabbing around your opponent’s head.
