In this video, we are covering defense techniques you can use for a choke from behind. That can certainly be a dangerous attack.Subscribe to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChnr4aWjYlhvPwWLF0ITQhA.
Let’s say you find yourself in a situation where your awareness is down. If your attacker comes from behind you, immediately you should turn around. If you were busy listening to music, or on your phone, and didn’t notice him though, you must react differently once he attacks you.
Most people have a particular reaction if they ever get choked from behind, and that is to pull on the rope that is around their neck and struggle to be free. It’s very normal, our survival instinct is telling us to flee the situation as quickly as possible and to try our best to do so. However, this is not how you should react.
You only have a few seconds before your oxygen is cut off and you pass out from the pressure on your throat, so you want to make those seconds count, not waste them struggling in vain to escape. If you try to kick, reach for the eyes, or his hands, it will not work because you won’t be able to strike your opponent hard enough, or even reach him as a matter of fact.
The best thing you can do in this type of situation is turning around once the rope is put around your throat, and striking him as quickly as possible! Once you have turned around, you have a better chance of escaping because you are in a position where you can strike and distract your attacker momentarily until you get out.
Remember, once you have turned around, you must strike fast. Most people have the instinct to pull away, but if your opponent is much stronger than you, it is not a good idea to do so. Striking him immediately, especially in the face, is more practical and recommended.
Johanna did a great job in defending herself! The element of surprise you can have over your attacker once you turn and strike is important, it can help you to escape, and manage to survive.
We hope you enjoyed the video.
