Pretend chokes The video is of a lame, contrived demo. The "choke" in it is not performed effectively. It's a farce of a choke. The reason this strutting bodybuilder is "immune" to the choke is that it's not a legitimate choke in the first place. If you know someone who thinks they can't be choked, I think Marcelo Garcia would be interested in testing that ...

I've personally seen the following, in various combinations: going slack tensing up and shaking sputtering blinking/twitching eyes glaze over eyes close snoring It's a lot easier to tell as a third party, since you can see things like the legs going limp while their upper body is locked in position by the choke. It helps to have a coach or whatever ...

Aside from all the signs that have already been listed, I would also look for your opponent to stop defending himself intelligently. If you feel that your choke is fully locked and your opponent doesn't seem to significantly relieve the pressure in any way (Blocking/Grabbing the chocking arm, adjusting his position, tucking his neck in etc...) chances are ...

The other thing that worked well for me (especially once I established a reputation for it) is if they are willing to choke you, then they should be willing to suffer the consequences. I would grab ...

New user and first time poster here so please correct me if I am out of line. One factor I don't believe was addressed was being able to tell if someone is going out from BEHIND. An example would be and bow and arrow choke where your training partner may have both hands in the collar attempting to defend. In this case it may appear and feel as if he is ...

No, you cannot be immune. imho even training to "resist" it is stupid. completely stupid. If someone is choking you out, he WILL succeed, even if you resist for 5 seconds longer. Air choking are easier to notice ( ... your cant breath) and fighting against your opponent's hold is alot easier. It will helps endure it, allow you to take little bit of air ...

No! This is a ridiculous question. No one is immune to being choked in the same way no is immune to having their arm broke.

They will not be moving their eyes can still be open and their muscles can still be flexed. Ways to prevent this if in a competion just tap if in a self defense situation pull the wrists down followed by chin down shoulders up.

Learn submission grappling from an instructor, not from the internet. You say you've been training for 7 weeks. If you are training at a school, just keep going, you will learn more and more chokes. Maybe with the time you have free to practice at home, you can go to the gym extra and practice there? Text and video is not enough when it comes to grappling; ...
