Counters to Chokes and Holds
If executed properly, the counter to the rear choke, the counter to the rear bear hug, and the counter to the rear headlock can render your aggressor unconscious quickly. If a choke is improperly executed it often results in a hold. A hold allows the aggressor control and removes the ability for an attack. It is important that Marines be able to extract themselves from chokes and holds so that they can counterattack and regain the tactical advantage.
There are two principal actions that should be taken to counter any choke—clear the airway and tuck the chin:
Counter to the Rear Choke
The counter to a rear choke is used when the aggressor approaches from the rear and puts his right arm around your throat.
~ With both hands grab the aggressor’s wrist and his forearm at the radial nerve, pull down just enough to clear your airway. Once the airway is clear, tuck your chin to protect your airway and to prevent the aggressor from re-applying the choke. At the same time, drop your body weight down, stepping out with your right leg. This places you more to the aggressor’s right side and also makes space for your left foot to step through.
