Hi. My name is Rhon Mizrachi and I'm the head of Krav Maga Federation in the United States.

I also own my own school in Manhattan on 25th Street. I've been teaching Krav Maga for over 30 years. You can visit us online on

Today I'll demonstrate for you Krav Maga defense against a choke hold from the front with a push. Slow. Explanation, he chokes and push. I do not resist. I go along with the push, raising my hand.

I'm going to rotate using my armpit to deflect his hands off of my throat. Going to try to isolate the hand if I can, and attack. Come directly. First one, to the face with an elbow.

From here, I'm going to strike with a knee to the groin, elbow to the face. I can continue with a punch and a kick to the groin. And I'm going to open up the gap.
