How to Defend against a Choke from the Front in Krav Maga

Learn how to defend against a front choke from Krav Maga Master Instructor Rhon Mizrachi in this Howcast video.


I'm teaching defense against a choke from the front. Alright.

A choke , when he chokes this is a relatively simple solution. You can punch him, you can punch him, you can poke him in the eye, you can do very many things from that place. However, all of those things that I told you about are toys. And if you want to retain information quick, in the art we try to develop material or work in material that is basically your natural instinct. And if somebody grabs your throat this is a natural instinct to raise your hands up. What we want to remember as what we can't work power against power. So we always have to make him as weak as we can. So, just so you know understand here he is extremely strong, so is he also very powerful. If you try to push him that way and naturally the weakest part of his arm will be the farther out towards the stomach. To make sure that this becomes effective, we also want to strike him at the same time. So it's not just I'm going to block his hands and then I'm going to strike him.

What I'm trying to do is block his hands and strike him at the same time. So even if he's so powerful, and I couldn't fight that off that kick to the groin is going to weaken him a little bit and give me the opportunity to open up gap. It's important for the people who's watching it to remember that naturally from here I'm going to continue and striking him in anyway I can. However, for the purpose of teaching it we are just showing you the basic motions. Thank you.

Come on guys, do it a couple of times, slow. We're going to raise our hands up and bring them in, take your elbows to the rear. Again. And one. Again, and one.

Now, naturally you have to understand that for us its in the art, the most important thing is to strike somebody, if you forgot to do any defensive motion that you forgot, the most important thing for you to remember is that you must hit him some how . And I've should have started from your knee but this is too easy, so now you're going to combine the knee and the motions together of the hand. Okay, and one, knee and hand. Again. One, and boom, and one, and boom, and one, and boom.

And let's add another motion to it which is we gonna back and hit him and then we just gonna open up the gap and make sure that we are okay. So, we go one, hit, and open up gap. Let's go again. Hit, up hit it and provide some space. Let's go again, a little more speed. Again. Again.

So guys please, pair doubles, start choking. Get closer to him, I don't need continuations. Again. Very nice. Okay. Thank you very much. Face forward.
