/// Rear Chokehold Escape Technique V1
Depending on how a rearchoke is applied, it can rather crush your larynx / trachea (death), or obstruct your carotid arteries / jugular vein (unconsciousness).
Either way, you have less than 12 seconds to escape.
If you see or feel the attack coming but can’t otherwise effectively counter, drop your chin to your neck as deep as you can so that the assailant’s arms can’t make contact with your throat – like a shield.
This will buy you more seconds to maneuver as your lower jaw is guarding your neck from the assailant.
Even if you can’t execute that step, quickly drop to one knee, grip the assailant’s hands, and bend forward sharply at your waist, tumbling the assailant.
Ideally the assailant on his back, disoriented – with you in a tactically advantageous position to attack.
Use that leverage to attack immediately with viciousness and precision, neutralizing the threat.
However, the situation (or your preference) may call for you to evade the scene as soon as you’re free instead of prolonging the incident.
