“Sleeperhold” Techniques Are The “800 Pound Gorilla” of the Martial Arts World!
This course will teach you step-by-step, from A to Z, everything
you need to know to “Put Your Opponent Into La-La Land”
“Strangleholds” Are Without A Doubt The Best Way To Defeat Bigger & Stronger Opponents
Strangleholds Give You The Power To Quickly Dispatch and Incapacitate A Man With Just The Right Technique and a Small Amount Of Pressure.

When done properly, they do not require a lot of muscle and they are pretty darn easy to learn and put to use!
This makes chokeholds unique, in that there is no other method that is as certain to take a man out as a good choke.

Here we have techniques that are easy to learn, require little strength, catch many people totally off guard and are very effective at stopping a 100% fully resisting attacker.

Make no mistake about it. Knowing how to properly apply strangleholds can be a great tool to add to you arsenal.

In fact, we think there are a whole host of good reasons for why every person interested in fighting or self defense should bone up their chokehold attacks:
“Chokeholds”, “Strangleholds” or “Sleeperholds”- Whatever You Call It, Here are 5 Good Reasons Why You Should Learn Everything You Can About Them
  • Sleeperholds Take Absolutely No Strength To Use
Chokeholds rely primarily on proper technique, positioning, and a little speed! You don’t need to be a brute of a man or muscle bound to make these things work. Truthfully, a weak man can absolutely choke out a much larger and stronger opponent with the right training. It has been done by numerous people TIME AND TIME AGAIN.
  • Sleeperholds Do Not Rely On Pain Compliance
Moves that rely on “pain compliance” are problematic! Punching and kicking can be fine if you are well trained, to be sure, but unless you are able to score that unusual knockout, the effectiveness of this tactic is limited to making the opponent willfully “quit” because of pain. THE PROBLEM WITH THIS APPROACH IS OBVIOUS! For when dealing with really tough attackers, or attackers on drugs, THEY ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT COMPLY JUST BECAUSE OF THE PAIN FROM YOUR “KARATE KICKS”. THEY WILL KEEP COMING AT YOU!! You need something like a chokehold to fall back on. SLEEPERHOLDS WILL TAKE HIM OUT OF COMMISSION WHETHER HE “WANTS” TO COMPLY OR NOT!
  • Sleeperholds Are Easy To Learn
Without a doubt, learning chokeholds is the most efficient way of using your “martial arts training time”. Not only are these techniques SUPER EFFECTIVE, but they also are really easy to learn. When compared to developing your punching and kicking skills, training in sleeperholds is much easier and less time consuming. For example, it takes hours and hours to learn how to throw a good kick, but a rear naked choke can be learned in one lesson! This sort of “bang for your buck” efficiency is unmatched in the martial arts world!
  • Sleeperholds Work Great Against Larger Opponents
Chokeholds are a great “equalizer” because they attack a very vulnerable part of the opponent’s body – his neck! Once they are locked in it is very, very difficult for even a strong man to escape from them. Taking no strength to use effectively, the choke can then completely render even a beast of a man totally unconscious in just seconds! This is perhaps the best way for a smaller person to deal with a larger opponent – much better than punching and kicking!
  • Sleeperholds Can Instantly Stop A Fight
Unlike punches and kicks that most often miss or do not land squarely, chokeholds put a man out of commission in seconds. Size and strength and how “tough” his jaw is does not matter. There is such a thing as “being able to take a punch” but THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS “BEING ABLE TO TAKE A CHOKE”. Nobody can just grit their teeth and tough their way through a good choke – NOBODY!! CHOKES PUT THEM OUT NO MATTER HOW TOUGH THEY ARE! When your life is on the line, that’s exactly what you want – something “sure” to stop your attacker! 
Grappling chokeholds are typically categorized as either “air chokes” or “blood chokes”.

“Air chokes” primarily attack the airway and principally interfere with breathing, causing asphyxia and unconciousness. These types of chokes are typically considered the less safe of the two because they can fracture the larynx.
“Blood chokes” (aka “sleeper holds”) on the other hand work by primarily compressing the carotid arteries and/or jugular vein which causes a sort of “mini-stroke” (cerebral ischemia) and a temporary lack of oxygen in the brain). This type of choke can cause unconciousness very quickly, in a matter of seconds if done by a skilled choke artist. Yes, you heard it correctly, a skilled person applying a blood choke can cause:
BOTH TYPES OF CHOKES CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE FOR SELF DEFENSE. This course teaches both but focuses primarily on the blood choke.
Chokes are very powerful and with power comes responsibility –
please use responsibly and always in accord with the law.
No doubt about it, when you are properly “schooled” in the art of chokehold techniques, you become a dangerous force to be reckoned with.

Wicked Gi Chokes II DVD #4 & #5
Great For Sport Or Self Defense!
This DVD really give you a SOLID foundation in the art of ” gi chokes” (chokes that strangle a person with their clothing).

Do not make the mistake of underestimating this aspect of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, for gi chokes don’t just work on “gis”. That’s the problem with a lot of people. A lot of grapplers think that “no-gi” is somehow “automatically” more realistic because MMA is realistic.
Look, gi chokes work on CLOTHING! Yeah – real everyday kind of clothing. T-shirts, jackets, sport coats, bathrobes, vests, dirty sleeveless “wife beater” shirts – you name it. If your opponent has almost any kind of upper body clothing on at all – YOU CAN CHOKE HIS ASS WITH IT.
Train At Least 50% With The Gi, Or Get Choked On The Street By Someone Who Does.
SELF DEFENSE and are probably the most underrated
techniques in all of martial arts.
So don’t neglect them. Gi chokes are STRONG and VERY ABLE to take out even the most determined of fighters. Don’t buy into that “MMA mindset” that gi chokes are not for real fighting. Most of your opponents on “the street” will be wearing clothing of some kind – and if you have a good background in gi chokes you will be able to CAPITALIZE on that fact and lay a fight ending choke on them so fast they won’t know what hit ‘em!

  • The Clock Choke (with additional Unorthodox Clock Choke Grips)
