Jiu-Jitsu standing rear choke defenses.
Different escape strategies against the standing rear choke attack. These Jiu-Jitsu techniques developed by the Gracie family are based on leverage instead of strikes:
0:34 The problem with the chin digging technique.
2:10 The problem with the slot machine technique.
3:45 Technique 1: Attacker leans forward.
4:10 Technique 2: Attacker stands straight in a neutral position.
4:42 Technique 3: Attacker pulls back.
4:56 Technique 4: Attacker takes leg out.
The use of leverage is more reliable than strikes or pressure points which the attacker will be able to take without letting go of the choke.
Mastering of the techniques showed requires constant practice and training under a certified instructor.
