ESCAPING THE SCARIEST ATTACK
Any self-defense situation is scary, but there are those positions we hopefully will never find ourselves in which will push the limits of our resolve. As I’ve taught self-defense for over 20 years, there is one position women say is the scariest, and men finally will admit they are the most fearful of.
The situation I’m talking about is having someone sit on your chest, while they are strangling or choking you. If the person is stronger or bigger than you, this situation is not only scary, but also extremely dangerous. Krav Maga has identified three of the easiest steps to get yourself out of this situation, which I’ll fully cover in a video link below, but we’ll go over the fundamentals right now.
How To Escape A Choke
Here are the three defensive moves to escape and defeat someone choking you from this position:
- PLUCK. The first thing to do to overcome from the scariest position is to pluck the hands of the attacker to escape from that person choking you. Take both your hands on the attacker’s hands and pull, or use a plucking motion, to get the hands off.
- TRAP. Trap your attacker’s hand by raising up your hand and wrapping over top of their arm up and then wrap your leg over their leg on the same side.
- ROLL. Last but not least, roll to the side where you created your trap.
When you are on the thrust of the other person, then you all have the momentum of striking your attacker. To get more detailed instruction, in addition to three other Krav Maga self-defense moves, go to this link: http://bit.ly/ESCAPEACHOKE.
