    Which is fine. I don't have time to do kickboxing. But why "never"?

    As for clothing chokes..

    Unless a person is better at rolling than I am ...which narrows down the field to a few billion people, if I get said person in closed guard and trap an arm, that person is getting choked with their clothing no matter what they are wearing, t-shirt, wife beater, raincoat, tuxedo, winter coat, no matter, I’ve practiced with every conceivable garment.

    I’ve always loved clothing chokes. Ever since I first got choked out that way.

    You can’t choke me in my T-shirt , the fabric would rip !!!
    You can put me in a sloppy rear naked and it will work .
    The gable grip choke is very effective as blood or air
    The one arm choke is hard to pull of

    One arm choke as trachea when you pull your shoulder back is a pain killer !!
    One arm blood choke is harder to work

    Oh dear, believing that is a very big mistake especially when it comes to self defence. I can choke you out with your t shirt quite easily and no, it doesn't tear.

    Anyone who has practised escapes can get out of it, in fact even people who haven't can. I'm not sure where you get your information from but you need to research a bit more. I just used Google to ask about t shirt chokes and there's dozens of videos showing how to do including some from Krav Maga so I guess you didn't learn everything in your months doing it.

    When I was a little (just a little, honest ;)) younger I very nearly choked myself out with my own t-shirt when I slipped while climbing a tree.

    I slipped, my t caught on a branch.

    It stretched a bit, and got a hole, but didn't tear...



    Now, I'm a bit odd. I quite enjoy sewing. If any clothing in our household needs alteration or repair my wife hands it to me.

    I also like messing around with machinery and engines, so I go through quite a few rags.

    T-shirts really don't tear all that easily, unless they're very poor quality or you get it going along a seam - even then you usually need to get it going with a preliminary cut.

    Hmm..., was teaching 'tee shirt' chokes yesterday to a group self defense class. Had 3 men who all said they believed the ladies could not put them out with a choke. All had tee shirts on. The 3rd decided not to attempt it after seeing the other 2 choked unconscious by a lady using the man's tee shirt. Not a single tee shirt was ripped...stretched a bit but not ripped. But then of course it wasn't you being choked.
