Figure Four Choke

The figure four is a variation of the rear choke, which allows you to gain more leverage on the rear choke. If you cannot secure the rear choke, you may apply the figure four variation to increase the pressure of the choke on the aggressor.

Technique

~ Apply a rear choke. Your body should be against the aggressor’s body.
~ Bring your left arm over your aggressor’s left shoulder and grasp your left biceps with your right hand and place your left hand against the back of the aggressor’s head.
~ With your left hand on the back of your aggressor’s head and your elbows in, push the aggressor’s head forward and down.
~ Draw your right arm in, maintaining pressure with your biceps and forearm on both sides of the aggressor’s neck. See figure 2-37.
