Self-Defense Tactic Everyone Should Know

Choke Defense

If you are being choked around the neck, you need to release the attacker's grip as quickly as possible.

The longer your airway is restricted, the better your chance of falling unconscious. If the attacker is placing pressure, you run the risk of being pushed to the ground (a defending range that you try to avoid at all costs). To break the standing choke hold, create a lock around his hands, release the lock using Avital's Combative Twist (a snap-like movement that engages the power of your whole core), then immediately launch a counterattack to disrupt the attacker's thought process, neutralize the threat to your safety, and escape to a safe location.
