5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Say Goodnight Now!
Reviewer: Roger Cormier (Northbridge, Massachusetts)

Great breakdown of how to quickly and effectively choke out an attacker. Sammy Franco knows his stuff and it shows! I wish I had heard of Sammy years ago.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 WICKED, BUT AWESOME!
Reviewer: robert rogus (Park Forest, Illinois)

This is one of your best, Sammy! Clearly explains the choke, the anatomy affected, and proper execution. Deadly simplicity, period!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sleeper hold!
Reviewer: Del (Valdosta, Georgia)

This is an awesome resource on the proper use of choking technique (specifically the rear-naked choke) for the street. The video teaches secrets for actually getting the choke applied on a resisting man, and for making the choke more powerful. If the rear-naked is part of your self-defense arsenal (and it SHOULD be), check out this video for sure!

Reviewer: Rodolfo (Monopoli BA, Italy)

I didn't knew anything about this kind of choke. Now it's very clear in my mind, i know how to apply it while standing and while on the ground. The technique is taught in a very clear way and anyone can study and learn efficiently from this dvd. Thanks Mr. Franco :)


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Awesome Video
Reviewer: Daniel Winters (Fairfax, Virginia)

This video was awesome. In one night you will go from knowing nothing about the "sleeper hold" to being a lethal practitioner. This DVD was so good that I took what I learned and gave my 135 lb girlfriend a 30 second tutorial and almost got choked out myself. I probably should have taken another 5 seconds to explain to her what tapping out was. Careful with this highly effective method, you wouldn't want to seriously hurt your training partner or end up serving time for defending yourself on the streets.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nighty Night!
Reviewer: Anthony Flarey (Nashport, Ohio)

This DVD is a must for all self defense practitioners. If you want to master the rear naked ( " blood " ) choke, you need to study this DVD and practice the techniques and drills with your instructor / partners. This DVD teaches you the right way to apply the choke, counter an assailant's defenses to the choke, and methods ( standing ) to apply the choke to a taller assailant. If you think you learn and apply the RNC by watching UFC fights, you are dead wrong. Buy this DVD!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Choke Out!
Reviewer: George M. Miner (San Anselmo, California)

The video demonstrates the correct way to do the rear naked choke (RNC). I especially liked the actual demonstration of the RNC and the reaction from the man that bravely allowed himself to be choked. The video made it clear that using the RNC in a fight is serious business and how easy it is to choke out an attacker.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rear choking techniques
Reviewer: radetri (Providence, Rhode Island)

An excellent presentation and demonstration of rear choking techniques. This video truly illustrates the body mechanics and strategies to incorporate a choke in many fighting techniques. Special attention is given to proficient engagement of the choke. Of particular interest is learning to incorporate chokes in Widowmaker techniques.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The Best Technique Video on the Naked Choke Technique
Reviewer: malcolm cosby (Wilmington, North Calolina)

This is the best video that breaks the rear naked choke down.I have been to formal classes that taught the technique,but they have nothing on this video.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Truly great video
Reviewer: joe davis (Shawnee, Oklahoma)

In a day and age when most of your "self defense" instructors claim to have a end all be all system its hard to find what works and what a joke. Not at CFA The choke out video is highly informational and explains the differences between chokes and the dangers of using excessive force. I highly recommend this dvd to those who want to learn proper technique and add to their self defense arsenal.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 The rear naked choke finally explained!
Reviewer: James McGarvey (Frederick, Maryland)

This is the most complete product on the market that deals with choking for street combat. In this video, Mr. Franco covers everything from the anatomy of choking to how to counter resistance to the technique. Watching Mr. Franco actually choke someone out in this video is really great for learning, because most people have not felt or seen this devastating technique performed to completion. Mr. Franco thinks of everything in this video, including showing how to perform the choke with one arm in case your hand is incapacitated in some way. This is a truly awesome product that everyone should have.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 A Famous Choke Fully Dissected!
Reviewer: Hammad (Germantown, Maryland)

After watching this, you will understand how and why an entire videois devoted to one technique. In one hour, Mr. Franco covers almost every aspect of the Rear Naked Choke (RNC) there is to cover. Mr. Franco starts by defining the choke before delving into the RNC. Not only does Mr. Franco illustrate the proper technique for performing a RNC, he addresses such issues as how to counter resistance to the choke, how to get into the position for the choke when facing a larger adversary, how to prepare for the adversary taking out a knife, and even the surprisingly robust hand signals used when training the RNC. There are a lot of people out there who try to teach the RNC, often with half-baked and potentially dangerous results, so do not hesitate to buy this masterfully done video. 5 stars!


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great!
Reviewer: Michael (Rockville, Maryland)

Choke Out is a great DVD because everthing about the Rear Naked Choke (RNC) is explained in such precise detail. You learn the difference of the two types of chokes and why the Blood Choke that is used during the RNC is so overwhelmingly effective. The live demonstration of the RNC is so Raw and Hardcore that you grasp such a higher level of respect for the power and control you have over your adversary during the RNC. There are some great drills you can do with a partner and some very important lessons to be learned about the RNC. This DVD reveals that the RNC is not just a simple technique, but very in depth and complex to apply correctly.


5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Learning the Rear Naked Choke
Reviewer: Walker (Potomac, Maryland)

Sammy Franco goes into great depth and detail on how to apply the "Rear Naked Choke." Sammy Franco explains the different types of chokes, and which one is better, and includes the different types of scenarios that you could encounter when applying the "Rear Naked Choke" to an assailant.


4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 It's devastating!
Reviewer: croooz (Germantown, Maryland)

My initial thought was "Why an entire video on just the rear naked choke". However, once you watch you fully understand. It's devastating. Not in the Hollywood definition of devastating but in the amount of pain it inflicts and how quickly it happens. Mr. Franco does an excellent job in reminding the viewer that this is not a game and this choke is not to be used in every self-defense situation. The list of what the video covers is impressive. From basic anatomy to many drills this video. For those who have never themselves experienced the effects of a Rear Naked Choke, Mr. Franco has included an unfortunate volunteer to demonstrate. His words after recovering consciousness are priceless. A great product all around.
