This choke is known as a submission hold. I rarely recommend using a submission hold in a street fight, and this one in particular occupies both of your hands and attaches you to the other person. For a variety of reasons including if there happen to be multiple attackers that you have to deal with, or the attacker is bigger and stronger than you, attempting this choke hold could put you in a dangerous position.
That being said, there may be a time where you must render an attacker unconscious, and this is probably the best way to do so aside from knocking them out with a combative. It will be much easier to get into the position necessary to complete this choke, if you have already attacked with strikes such as groin kicks, punches, and eye gouges to ‘soften’ the attacker up.
This week’s video addresses how to execute this technique properly, as well as how to defend if someone should attempt this choke on you. Keep in mind that the best defense (as usual) is awareness and prevention of this dangerous situation.
Ok, thats all for now, enjoy the video, be safe, and… GO DO SOME KRAV MAGA TODAY!
