Due to overwhelming demand, our K-9 Instructor Scully Mitchell has re-posted her famous tutorial for Defense Against a Choke from the Mounted Position. Enjoy!
SCULLY: Okay. The attacker’s in the mount when the choke comes on. Pluck at the wrists, just like we learned in Level One!
SCULLY: Don’t get sloppy. Remember, wrist to wrist!
SCULLY: As you pluck, the weight they were putting behind the choke will cause them to fall forward. Now we got ’em!
SCULLY: Trap their leg with your foot on one side, so they can’t post out when you roll ’em…
SCULLY: …now burst upward, taking your arm up and over, in the direction of the trapped leg.
SCULLY: Remember to reach UP and ACROSS, as far as you can toward your opposite shoulder!
SCULLY: You’ll naturally roll, but stay with them. I like to bite them on the way 😉
SCULLY: Look! Now we’re in THEIR guard! Pretty cool, huh!?
SCULLY: Now, simply neutralize the threat with combatives and get the heck outta there!
