End a Fight in 3 Seconds | Krav Maga

Ending a fight efficiently with minimal engagement with the subject allowing for a rapid exit is ideal. In this Krav Maga video, Ryan Hoover breaks down the rear naked choke in a street fight scenario where violence is imminent.

The idea is to rapidly shut down the carotid arteries restricting blood flow to the brain. If applied correctly, unconsciousness occurs between 3 to 5 seconds.


We’ve all seen the rear naked choke, and is likely one of the first defensive tactics we learn as teenagers. It’s a prevalent fight ender in MMA matches but knowing how to apply it properly, especially off the actions of an aggressor is worth learning and worth perfecting.
