Rear Choke Hold
Someone might think that there's no stopping them
if they surprise you with a rear choke hold, but if you are
familiar with these responses, you will provide the surprise.
The self-defense techniques demonstrated in Street
Self Defense 101 are effective yet simple, they are more easily
executed in a real situation. The effects of an adrenaline dump
on the body and mind would make it much more difficult to complete
complicated fighting maneuvers.
Street Self Defense 101 teaches what you need
to know to defend yourself and lets you be the one to know what
you're doing when the adrenaline starts pumping.
For instance, say a man puts you in a rear chokehold
without warning. A few quick steps are illustrated in Street
Self Defense 101 that will strip your attacker of his advantage
and give you control of the situation. Let's take a look at
how you might do this.
Prior to breaking the hold, you might weaken it
by glancing back and delivering a slap to the groin. Then put
your arm up between his and drive it forward as you step forward
with your opposite foot.
This should break the hold and put you in a position
to bring your arm back and give him an elbow to the face. If
necessary, you may finish up with palm-heel and/or knee strikes
to insure that the conflict is resolved.
This and the defenses against other attacks are
clearly demonstrated and explained in Street
Self Defense 101.
