Judo Chokes and Strangles
There are a wide range of Judo chokes and strangles (shime waza) that can be done with or without a gi, from standing or from the ground, and are a terrific way to win a match - with authority!
These should always be practiced under the direct supervision of a qualified instructor because the improper application of any of these techniques can cause serious injury or death. Always apply force gradually, giving your partner lots of time to tap out. When in doubt, let go of the choke for your partner's safety. If unconsciousness should occur, immediately let go of the technique and apply the appropriate first aid measures (if you don't know what first aid should be done, Do Not practice any of these on your own - get a knowledgeable instructor to guide you!).
