Use These 4 Self Defense Jiu Jitsu Techniques to Escape the Rear Choke
Jiu Jitsu at it’s core is the ultimate self defense martial art. There is amazing power and beauty in the way Jiu Jitsu can handle a variety of different attacks.
“Old School” Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and still many Gracie Jiu Jitsu schools still focus heavily on learning self defense and sport fighting techniques.
This video features old-school Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Japanese Ju jitsu escapes from the rear choke. The video creator, has a background in both BJJ and Japanese Jujitsu. Blending them together gives him a unique perspective on self defense and all around grappling.
Of course just by training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you already know “how to defend yourself”…. or do you?
The rear choke is one on the worst attacks you may face in a street fight or any self defense situation. Obviously there are many techniques to escape the rear choke, but these are our favorite Jiu Jitsu escape techniques to escape the rear choke, and finish with a jiu jitsu throw, takedown, control or submission.
Here are the 4 Jiu-Jitsu Techniques to Escape Choke that are highlighted in this video.
1.) Ippon Seoi Nage – a very common judo / ju jitsu throw to drive your opponent into the ground. In this self-defense version of the ippon seoi nage, we will use a Combat Jiu Jitsu stance to drop your opponent.
2.) Osoto Gari – Another very common Judo or Ju Jitsu leg-trip throw. In this version of the Osoto Gari Rear Choke Self Defense, we’ll use your opponents “action” to step behind him and trip him with the Osoto Gari Takedown
3.) Judo Lock – The judo lock escape is one of the best self defense moves when your opponent has their arms around your neck and is choking you. It is a simple movement that easily gives you jiu jitsu control over your opponent.
4.) Yoko Wakare – this Ju Jitsu throw is also a side fall and sacrifice throw that uses gravity to throw your opponent over your shoulder. It is very effective, and quick self-defense takedown. You will also learn a jiu-jitsu training drill to put all of these self-defense Jiu-Jitsu techniques together.
