how hard is it to strangle...
Anonymous 07/15/14(Tue)20:50 UTC+1 No.458998 Report

how hard is it to strangle someone using a rope?
is it possible to strangle someone significantly stronger than you?
and how do you defend if you are being strangled?

sometimes i just wonder how i would react if someone tried to kill me with a rope or something.

if you maintain posture, easy


not be a dumbass and walk in areas where someone can get behind you

the only thing i could recommend is to try to get space between the arteries/trachea and rope, sink weight and try to engage is some sort of ground fighting

attempting to grapple while standing is possible but you already gave them your back...standing...with a rope around your neck

the image you posted isn't a rope though

My two cents in regards to defending oneself from garroting/strangulation with rope:

0-Maintain awareness of your surroundings.
1-Tuck your chin and place one of your hands so as to prevent the rope/wire from wrapping around your neck.
2-Maintaining your hand in place, do a half-squat and lean forward, making the person either bend over you or step to the side (and in doing so release pressure).
3-With the person bent over you, extend your legs and use your hips to do a sort of judo throw over your shoulder.
4-If successful, leave area and preferably stop frequenting spy novels.

I write up and find resources to share on shime-waza/choking techniques. But there area a slew of gi chokes and variants that can make choking out an opponent pretty easy with a rope/lanyard/their own shirt. So that answers that question.

Is it possible to choke out someone way stronger then you? Oh yes, remember the whole rule of thumb of posistion then submission. Please note that i said rule of thumb. And how i am being mindful of choke out compared to using strangulation. I'll expand on that here in a bit about why I make that difference.

And how to defend from being choke out? That's another can of worms that will take me awhile to type up. But the 2 most blunt answers are; don't get caught in a shitty posistion to be choked from (you'll hear this crude/rude response from a lot of grapplers but its true, and it equates to, LEARN to grapple better). Second basic concept will be learning to how to hand fight/grip fight (what we call kumi kata in judo)

I am going to go to judo right now, so i'll be back in about 3-4 hours ish to dump what info and insight and what nots I have on the subject.

Anonymous 07/17/14(Thu)08:30 UTC+1 No.459977 Report

Ok, so for purposes of what i am talking about I am going to make a big difference between strangling someone and choking someone out.

For me, when I hear strangle I hear of air chokes, which attacks the airway, like the rape choke/front choke.

A chokehold like the rear naked (RNC)/hadake jime), kata gatame/arm triangle are blood chokes that block off the major arteries of the neck and prevents blood flow into the brain.

I am coming from a judo background, and I will tell you straight up, strangling is garbage technique (well zero technique), it takes way longer to disable someone with an airchoke then a blood choke.

For an air choke to truly work, you have to be insanely strong (or your opponent insanely small and weak compared to you but what's the point of training or learning technique on beating someone weaker then you/you can already beat?). So besides lots of strength you need A LOT of time before they black out/knock out.

Now, all the shime waza taught in judo and BJJ all of them are variants of blood chokes (and there are further variants that do a double wammy of being a blood/air, but that's for later).

OP you asked how hard is it to strangle (air choke) a person, well the motion is easy. Its going to hurt the guy. But is it going to knock him out easily? probably not.

Now if you got that same rope and used the principles and technique of a blood choke, you are going to knock out the guy way faster(instantly if you develop the technique to it).

This answers your second question. Someone stronger then you, can easily be choked out , strangling someone stronger then you, well shit you just lost one advantage of having an air choke working and that's the strength, and well if they're stronger then you and it takes a real long time, well that seems plenty of time for them to muscle out of your move. Again this leads us to the advantage of learning proper shime waza/choking.

Op here.

I understand the difference between air/blood choke but how can you possibly target anything using a rope? Don't you hit both the airway and arteries anyways?
Anonymous 07/17/14(Thu)11:05 UTC+1 No.460038 Report

Garottes are a blood choke though. It's the exact same principal as any gi choke.
Anonymous 07/17/14(Thu)11:06 UTC+1 No.460039 Report

It honestly depends on how you grip and lace the rope, which then evolves and creates a variant technique.

Now, if you just grabbed the rope with both hands of yours, and just jammed it into the guys throat, you're not going to get the arteries, and just create an airchoke. If you can recreate a gi choke variant with your lacing and grip then you can get a blood choke (maybe a double wammy, if you are able to pull off certain variants)

Now, I am thinking that you are maybe thinking what about thickness of the rope? Well there is no catch all/silver bullet technique. But the thickness of the rope would then make me as the choker modify my gripping/lacing compared to a thinner rope, would it be easier to catch bot the air and blood choke? hmmmm yes and no, the other factor to come in would then be the thickness of my opponents neck.

Now you're probably going to have me stop beating around the bushes and ask for what exact chokes could you look up so you can start garotting buddies left and right, so i say this with some trepidation cause i know lots of guys who try to muscle in choke holds and the scary part of that isn't like you know killing the guy. Its fucking up a partner/friend's neck by muscling in a neck crank rather then cleanly getting the blood choke.

So its common sense. Anyway now that I made a big stink about that and blood choke/air choke we can focus more on the technique and the principle behind them right?

The baseball choke is a variant of a judo choke (you can view it as an inverted/upside down oku eri jime) Its a big time favorite currently in competition BJJ One of the biggest proponents Magid Hage (really recommend his DVD where he spends a good hour just talking about this move alone and at least a dozen variants on it he also gives props to the judo coaches that showed him this move)
Anonymous 07/17/14(Thu)11:13 UTC+1 No.460041 Report


So look at this, this is from the Gracie Brothers 16 BJJ Chokes for the street, gi chokes that have been modified to use the gripping of gi but onto street clothes

Now there is crossover between grip strength drilling and choke drilling which involves a rope, you get your belt or gi or jump rope, and on your own you shadow drill/uchokomi the motions of lacing and gripping the choke. This helps develop the muscle memory so you're not fumbling as much, and hence develops more speed and power into the choke hold, which then helps translates into choking out guys faster.

I want you to look at these two youtubes, they discuss how to use the baseball choke on a t-shirt and pollo. Now the basic principle of gripping and lacing is the same.

We then could use the same principle then for a rope



Look at how the grip and lace the laynard (which in itself is just a rope right?) completely different from just going up to the guy and tugging, which just becomes an air choke.
Anonymous 07/17/14(Thu)11:18 UTC+1 No.460043 Report

I agree and disagree with you. I'll agree with you that a garrote (the tool/rope/device) can be used as a blood choke if you know the technique and even shares the same principle with some gi choke variants. I mean if you look at military instruction manuals they show you the proper way to grip and lace the thing. On the flip side some miltiary manuals won't show you the proper technique.

What I don't agree with is, that the device itself will instantly guarantee you a blood choke. It won't if you don't know the proper technique and way to use it.

Well its been on a the news but a cop killed a 350lb man with a rear naked choke. So i guess its possible that you can strangle someone significantly stronger and bigger then you.

Probably didn't help he got slammed and swarmed by 3 other cops.

So I guess grappling with choke holds and slams and having the numbers advantage is the real deadly.

You're such a retard. A wire almost as thin as a knife's edge can cut, especially when you LARP throw them over your shoulder like in your ninja movies with it around your neck. They are made for cutting flesh, otherwise you would use chord of some kind. It kills faster by making the person bleed out

Assuming it doesn't cut, you have two seconds from the time blood is cut off

Pull out a handgun and shoot behind you quickly enough, and maybe someone can come find you and save you

however, as this is talking about a rope and not rope jitsu, you're better off on /k/

>For me, when I hear strangle I hear of air chokes, which attacks the airway, like the rape choke/front choke.
Strangle is the other one. A "choke" affects the airway and is manual suffocation, a "strangle" restricts the blood flow through the carotid.

>Now, all the shime waza taught in judo and BJJ all of them are variants of blood chokes
Box, guillotine, forearm, are a few varieties which are/were intended to be "air" chokes, even if they do have the potential to be "blood" chokes. There's not a huge bunch but they're in there. It doesn't take much strength to close someone's airway with those techniques, but I think people underestimate how long manual suffocation takes, so you'd need a lot of stamina in your squeeze unless you were using your bodyweight.

I don't see how you could target the carotid or trachea specifically with a garrote though, but I guess it doesn't matter
