Hello! In this article I would like to describe you how to react to a choke. When an attacker is choking you he will be very fast and you have only few seconds to defend yourself… in 20 second you can die!

  1. When the attacker is choking you from the front his power is going on your back. Some people try to defense with a movement up to down with their hands but this way is not effective because it doesn’t follow the power direction of the attacker.
  2. You have to use your hands in a “spoon” figure, put them inside to the opponent wrist and open them while you go back with your body.
  3. Hit the opponent groin with your knee.
  4. Hit the opponent face with your elbow.
  5. Continue to hit your opponent: punch him, hit his knee.

The point of this technique is: in Krav Maga we use natural movements. What does it mean? If the opponent choke me very strong with one movement (shoulder and hips) I can release the choke! This technique is easier then the previous one so why in Krav Maga we prefer to use that one instead this one? Because when someone choke you the natural movement is to bring your hand to the throat where you are out of breath. So in Krav Maga the defense technique is built on the natural reaction! This is the great aspect of the Krav Maga!!!
