The first video will walk through one of the ways to defend yourself from an attacker that is trying to choke you from behind.
It's a pretty simple defense. The key here is not to panic and not allow your attacker perform a Rear Naked Choke, one of the toughest submissions to escape.
Below is a video on how to defend yourself against a Rear Naked Choke from an attacker.
The key to defending yourself against a Rear Naked Choke is to move, vibrate, squirm, dig your chin into the crevice of his elbow as quickly as possible, while pulling down on his arms with both hands using a "fish hook" grab. Once you've done this, you have fighting chance to get out of the choke.
Disclaimer: Do not perform these moves on friends unless you have the supervision of an experienced instructor or black belt. These are EXTREMELY dangerous chokes where someone can get get hurt or seriously injured. Javier Lozano, Jr. is a 3rd Black Belt and has over 22 years of Martial Arts experience.
