In Grappling arts, a choke-out is what happens when a chokehold causes a syncope, also known as a temporary loss of consciousness, at which point the choke is released.
The most common chokeholds in BJJ/grappling/MMA which cause they choke-outs are the rear naked choke, collar chokes, arm triangle, triangle choke, and the guillotine by they can also happen from shoulder pressure on the neck.
In this case, the choke out happened when the BJJ instructor at Bam Bam Martials arts was demonstrating a choke on the kid’s instructor in front of the whole class…
We always see BJJ referees or teammates/coaches lift the choked out person’s feet and slowly the person wakes, but is that really what should be done?
According to first aid this is what should be done if a person is unconscious from a choke:
If the person is breathing and lying on their back, and you do not think there is a spinal injury, carefully roll the person toward you onto their side. Bend the top leg so both hip and knee are at right angles. Gently tilt their head back to keep the airway open. If breathing or pulse stops at any time, roll the person onto their back and begin CPR.
If the grappler does not awaken after 20 seconds, alert medical services and apply CPR.
If you like chokes, you can turn your arms and legs into pythons and squeeze necks like never before!
