sleeper hold

— Posted by dudearama on 10:10 am on April 5, 2002

Just to inform you guys, if you look at your throat in the mirror, you’ll see two ridges on either side of  your esophagus.  Just inside those are blood vessels leading up to your brain.  If you put pressure on them (best way is to go from behind and line up the inside of your elbow with their esophagus, and scissor your bicep with your forearm) you can knock someone out in under 5 seconds.  No shit!  If you have ever watched any UFC you’ll see see it’s true.  In fact any hold that does not knock someone out in 3-6 seconds is considered worthless in ju-jitsu.  I just about passed out myself under one of these holds(it’s actually a nice feeling to get chocked out, kind of like your falling asleep).

I remember seeing a Simpson episode where Homer became a body guard and was putting everyone asleep with a hold on the sholder. May not be true but funny.

hey tee hee that is true, if you put enough pressure on their neck it will block the nerve pathways and put them outcold, prolonged pressure will kill him/her:biggrin: and when they wake up they will feel dizzy as hell and may or may not remember a thing. Problem is you’ll need a strong grip to pull this off, because a strong amount of pressure is needed.

Oh, you’re talking about the blood choke.  I took a bit of BJJ before…  takes approx. 10 secs to put someone to sleep, 1 minute to die, if done right.  Its very dangerous and you should release it immediately once the victim loses his senses.
