i've done this and it works nice under pressure!

Excellent, real self defense from a reputable source. This would actually work under pressure due to proper body mechanics and stance. I like the strong counter offense: attacking and hurting the attacker is the only reliable way to stop a determined individual with bad intentions. When the enemy makes war on you don't go talking about moderation or peace but retaliate in kind. Evil men deserve to be hurt and punished. KM is indeed at the cutting edge of real SD.

It will not work against an opponent larger and stronger than you are. First, they do not politely and gently hold your throat. They are squeezing and shaking you while cutting off your air and blood supply to the brain. Why do you think they are choking you? To give you the chance to show off a BS technique? No, they want to kill you. Even if they don't, they might.

Better to grab their wrists firmly to distract them and then kick them in the knees, both knees, as hard and fast as you can. Broken knees discourage opponents very effectively.
