Defense Against A Choke From Behind

Krav Maga – Defense Against A Choke From Behind Against A Wall

This page focuses on Krav Maga techniques used to escape or defend against a choke from behind against a wall. This self-defense technique deals with a scenario where an attacker has pushed you from behind up against a wall and is now trying to choke you. This is a dangerous attack as the wall prevents you from escaping. This attack needs to be countered quickly in order to avoid losing consciousness due to the choke.

Written Instructions for Technique

  • In this technique, you will throw your arm/shoulder up and over the attacker’s arms.
  • This will allow you to disrupt the choke and potentially trap the attacker’s arms so that you can quickly counterattack or escape.
  • You should also practice the “reverse” technique where you are being choked from the front against a wall.
