8-01 Defense Against Chokes

8-1. DEFENSE AGAINST CHOKES

a. Standing Rear Naked (Figure 8-1). At the moment you feel the enemy’s arm around your neck, your hands should immediately grasp it to keep him from tightening the choke, and you should hang your weight on his arm to feel where his weight is. If he is close to your back, simply lean forward at the waist and, using your hips to lift, throw him straight over your back.

b. Standing Rear Naked Pulling Back (Figure 8-2). If, when you hang your weight on the enemy’s arm, you feel that he is pulling you back over one of his legs, you should reach back with your leg and wrap it around the outside of the enemy’s leg on the same side as the choking arm. As he tires from holding you up, use your leg as a guide and work your way around to the position shown. Your leg must be behind his, and you must be leaning forward, controlling his arm. Twisting your body, throw him to the ground.

c. One-Hand Neck Press Against the Wall (Figure 8-3). If the enemy pins you against the wall with one hand, strike his arm with the palm of your hand on the side where his thumb is pushing toward his fingers. This will make his arm slide off of your neck. Follow through with your strike and when your arm is in position, strike with a backward elbow strike to the head.

d. Two-Hand Neck Press While Pinned Against the Wall (Figure 8-4). If the enemy uses both hands against your neck to press you into the wall, grasp under his elbows with both hands. Step out to either side and throw him against the wall. Finish with a knee strike.
