Surviving a chokehold

mma instructor explains how to survive a chokehold

I had to do this once. I was in a fight when I was 16 or 17 and the other guy was like 22 or 23 with martial arts training. I tried to take him down by wrapping my arm around his head and hip tossing him to the ground but he was too strong and couldnt get him down(I used to wrestle), we were both locked in a mutual standing head lock, leaning over, and he grabbed my esophagus. Aint gonna lie, it scared the shit out of me as I couldnt breath or talk instantly. So naturally I upper cutted him in his balls as hard as I could in 3 quick successions. He let go pretty fast and that ended the fight, lol. I've fishhooked people until they cried, I had to stop myslef from ripping their cheeks off, Ive put my thumb in someones eye trying to pop it out, you do what you have to do to win no matter what. Ive trained some of my "hippie"/"nerdy" friends on street fighting and I always told them that in every street fight you have to assume there is a chance you can die, whether it be from them knocking you out and punting your head or just your head smacking the concrete and your brain hemorrhaging. So fight like your life depends on it and get dirty if you have to, there are no rules in love and war!

But.. how long and swinging does a guy's scrotum need to be for you to be able to reach back and do the ol' grab and twist,  through a pair of jeans?

Chin down is good. The rest is too many decisions, and you may have about 5 seconds if they get your air. IF the agressor knows what he's doing he is going to 1 of 3 things. 1. He will use the marine corpse choke. One arm is going under your armpit closest to his body, incapacitating your fighting arm. 2. He will immediately kick the crease of your leg bringing you to the ground. if it goes this far and you drop your dead. 3. he can keep his stance further back so his nuts are out of reach.

 

HERE is what you do.

 

The INSTANT you feel ANYTHING around your neck STEP BACK behind his leg and use your knee and hip to step forward again while kneeing the crease/meat of his leg as you do so. If practiced this is FAST INSTINCTIVE and will throw him off balance leveling the playing field again. If done perfectly it will drop him on his back and you can stomp him to sleep.

Wanna bet i can choke him out with his own arm in 10 seconds.

And yes that acctualy works, you pull the arm so it stretches all the way, and you wrap it around the neck in one motion you stand behind him and you pull the shoulder and push the hand/wrist close together, the bigger his biceps the faster he chokes out, and there is no way out of it.
