Logs for Level 1 : Choke Defenses

Choke from the side

Aiming for the inside, direct throat, hand; pluck the grip with an aggressive ‘rip’ with the far hand, using your inside arm for a downward hammer-fist into the opponents groin. Immediately raise the attack arm elbow back and up towards the opponents face using a #5 elbow technique, but not to make contact, only to make space. When the elbow reaches shoulder level, cock it back for a #3 elbowto the opponents face. Based on your position, you may shift into a hook punch using the right fist, followed by a forward knee to the opponents groin, or any other combinations that will hasten a safe escape.

Choke from behind

If an attacker chokes you with both hands, while you are facing away from the opponent in a standing (not moving) position, reach both hands back over your shoulders (palms facing the opponent and fingers outstretched to scare or scratch your opponent) to pluck your attackers hands. Shifting slight left, deliver a Hammer-fist strike to the attackers groins. Immediately raise the attack arm elbow back and up towards the opponents face using a #5 elbow technique, but not to make contact, only to make space. When the elbow reaches shoulder level, cock it back for a #3 elbowto the opponents face. Based on your position, you may shift into a hook punch using the right fist, followed by a forward knee to the opponents groin, or any other combinations that will hasten a safe escape.

Choke from the front (2 hand pluck)

When the attacker is choking you in a standing position, both facing each other: pluck with both hands while simultaneously raising your knee for a straight forward knee or, depending on distance, a groin kick. This shift in power should break the attackers grip as well as their balance, leaving you available for counter strikes. Leaning in for a hammer-fist strike and as many techniques it takes to get free and get away, or put your opponent down.

Choke from the front (1 hand pluck)

When the attacker is choking you in a standing position, both facing each other: pluck with your left hand while simultaneously raising your right hand between your attackers arms for either a straight punch or palm strike to the attackers face. This shift in power should break the attackers grip as well as their balance, leaving you available for counter strikes. Depending on the teacher, I’ve found it successful to continue to hold onto the attackers arm you ‘plucked’ in close (low down to your chest area) for a follow up groin kick, leaning in for an straight forward knee, hammer-fist strikes and as many techniques it takes to get free and get away, or put your opponent down.
