If someone’s got their hands around your throat with serious intent your defence needs to be infallible. This means good physics, broad strokes and easy to remember techniques that work under pressure from multiple positions and opponents of different size and strength.

This is Rick Spain’s pet peeves on neck attack defence techniques.


This week Sifu Rick Spain Calls Bullshit on martial arts instructors who don’t go to the ground because “we’re a stand up system” or “we can’t be taken down” and who don’t spar because their system is too deadly or interestingly… sparring isn’t realistic. Well unless you’re an idiot going out picking street fights, it’s the closest most people are going to get!
