When an opponent is on the ground with his back towards you, step up close with your right foot. Place your
right knee against his shoulder. Kneel on your left knee.
Place your elbow on his shoulder with the forearm straight out in front. Bring your right forearm in front of
his throat, the sharp edge of the wrist-bone against his windpipe.
Place the fingers of your right hand on the elbow of your left hand.

Bring the palm of your left hand behind opponent’s head. Strangle him by pressing his head forward with
your left hand and pressing his windpipe with your right wrist.

Go slowly and release him the instant he signals defeat.


In a jujitsu match, when an opportunity offers, the strangle hold is applied like a flash of lightning. The
opponent makes the signal of defeat, and the match is decided. Quick as has been the operation, no injury or
pain has resulted to the vanquished man.
A jujitsu man who applied a hold so roughly and clumsily as to damage his opponent would be so ashamed of
himself that he would not show his face in the wrestling hall for months to come. Such an incident, however,
does not occur. Before a jujitsu man has worked his way up to the ranks of the third-class exponents, he has
acquired a temperance, a control of his movements, that makes such an occurrence unthinkable.
Although there is no limit to the deadly nature of the holds used in a jujitsu match, there is never an accident
on that account. I have trained large numbers of men in the effective use of the Death Lock, and by this
system in a few lessons, they, too, acquire a temperance, and are able to use this hold with safety to
themselves and their opponents.
The rear strangle is one of the four methods used in jujitsu matches of strangling a man from the rear, all of
them equally effective and interesting. They achieve their object of making the opponent quit either by

pressure on his windpipe, on the nerves and blood vessels of his neck, or on his spine. You are not taught
these other methods in this course, for the simple reason that the Death Lock supplants them all. A complete
course of self-defense should teach you not only the best tricks to use, but why you should use them, and we
give you this rear strangle so that you may compare it with the Death Lock.
