Eri Jime – Collar Chokes and Counters

Eri Jime - Collar Chokes and Counters

In our art of To-Shin Do we have a section of study just called the “Ground Flow Kata” that consists of 30 techniques and counters in a sequence to help develop proficiency in ground based conflict. Move “number 8” in the To-Shin Do Ground Flow kata flows as such: after your opponent counters your “Guillotine” choke attempt you are tasked with applying a “Loop Choke” or collar choke. The “Loop Choke” is just one of many potential techniques that utilizes the fabric of your opponents collar as a self-protection choking tool. In this course you will learn how to apply the Loop Choke as well as several collar chokes from the top position, from the bottom guard position, and from behind your opponent.

“That Choke” is one of the select few techniques that let you attack from inside your opponents guard that’s not a striking technique and keeps you relatively protected from exposing yourself to attack.
