Rear Choke Defense

This is one of many options you have when someone is foolish enough to attack you.

As Sam watches, I am accosted by a scary-looking, bald dude with a mustache. He grabs me around the neck, attempting to choke me. Thanks, Sam for just watching...

To defend, simply counter by grasping the forearm, keeping your airway clear, dropping your hips below your opponent's, then straighten your knees to apply a gentle shoulder throw. Enjoy!

Nathan,
Don't forget to mention the fact that in training throw smoothly and fast, or your assistant will hit the ground head first! Don't want that to happen!

Oh yes! What did you just say? Short-term memory loss...

It also works as a defense against a rear knife attack to the throat. The key is to get your hand up between their arm which protects your throat from the knife. Then you can execute a shoulder or hip throw.

Good point. However, Bob, please stop giving Mike (scary-looking bald dude) ideas!
