Today, I want you to discover how to choke a man unconscious.
Why would that be useful you might ask?
Remember when a terrorist decided to board a high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris in August 2015 with an AK-47, a bunch of magazines, a sidearm and box cutters?
That terrorist was stopped before he could cause mayhem because a couple of guys stepped up, tackled him, disarmed him, and one of the heroes choked the terrorist unconscious
If you don’t know how to do that, then here’s exactly how to choke a terrorist unconscious:
The Beauty of Blood Chokes
What you’re about to see — in a most entertaining fashion — is a “Blood choke”.
Why is this important? Wikipedia explains:
“Blood chokes, carotid restraint or sleeper holds, are a form of strangulation that compress one or both carotid arteries and/or the jugular veins without compressing the airway, hence causing cerebral ischemia and a temporary hypoxic condition in the brain. A well applied blood choke may lead to unconsciousness in a matter of seconds. Compared to strangulation with the hands, properly applied blood chokes require little physical strength.”
Did you catch that?
You basically are cutting off the blood to the brain, and because it can be done so QUICKLY it takes very little strength to do it.
Perfect for just about anyone to use to defend themselves (no matter how old, fat, out of shape or weak you are).
Lastly, a WARNING: applied correctly your opponent will go to sleep in 7-10 seconds. If you continue to choke someone past this point, you could kill them. If you practice this, you are completely responsible for the safety of your training partner. (Use the “10 second rule” if you apply the choke and he doesn’t tap in 10 seconds or you don’t feel him go to sleep, release the choke anyways. You either did it wrong or he’s unconscious and you didn’t know it.) If you are using this technique, be very careful.
