Re: N.Y. cop not indicted in choke hold deathDec 6th, 2014
I've had some experience in judo and i'm quite aware of the chokehold that was used. It cuts off circulation to brain and will cause unconsciousness in seconds, which is why our instructors never allowed us to use it with any force. It can also cause arithmea and cessation of breathing even in healthy individuals.. that's why the NYPD banned it.
also a plumber in Regina). Anyone who follows Judo (or MMA) would know
the below match is over (baseball choke) 8-9 seconds in, but it's not a
common move yet, and even the referee didn't realize what happened at
the time (& should'a elevated dudes feet to get the blood flowing back into
his head quickly). Seconds after his opponent is out, they separate, and
everybody lives. Imagine that. Proper training I guess....
