How to use a Throat Strike in Self-Defense Situations

This page focuses on strikes to the throat in self-defense situations (i.e. rape prevention). The instructional videos below provide a variety of different ways throat strikes are used in self-defense.

These throat strikes are in addition to the standard Knife Hand Strike (or Karate Chop) to the side of the neck.

Many of these self-defense targets (i.e. groin or eyes) are illegal in martial arts sparring competitions. However, they are useful in self-defense situations. These attacks on vital areas should only be used in life or death situations as you can severely injure your opponent.

For more instruction, please visit the Vital Points, Strikes & Punches and Self-Defense sections.
