How to Defend a Rear Choke When Being Dragged Away
How to fight with simple self defence techniques for complete beginners. How to fight to STOP someone from dragging you off to another location with a choke. This self defence video shows a simple method of how to defend against the standing rear naked choke. What to do when your attacker steps in from behind to choke and drag you away. See how you break free.
Step 1. Requires you to fight to loosen control of your neck from the strangulation. This requires that you hand fight to remove the arm on the back of your head. To do this, you must reach over or around your head to find the arm that is locking your head into place. Once you've established contact with the attackers arm pull it off by twisting the knuckles or the wrist. This works well if the person is stronger than you. Of course, you could grab the fingers in self defence, this would be equally as effective in controlling a bigger or stronger attackers arm.
Step 2. Once you have loosened the arm around your neck, you must fight to keep hold of it to prevent your attacker from using it again. In fact, keeping hold of it will allow you to control a bigger or stronger attacker more effectively. In this situation, you have to keep hold of the arm against your chest, while pivoting to face behind you (see the second segment of the video). This will off balance your attacker and cause them to fall hard on the floor.
Step 3. This is a simple counter to the attackers defence. If your attacker steps his leg out of the way to avoid the trip, then you have the option to throw your attacker over your shoulder. This is simply done by dropping to one knee. Note, the drop is more of a crouch in which you rest the knee or keep it close to the ground. You must not fall hard on your knee especially on solid concrete pavement. This will cause an obvious injury that may mean that you cannot run away from the ambush attack.
