22

u/Beingabummer 5d ago

The only scenario I can think of where they'd use a rope instead of a garrote or a knife or a gun is if they wanted to capture the person alive.

But even then, threatening someone with a gun or a knife will probably work a lot better.

17

u/Docmcdonald 5d ago

Guns are really loud and at most places are hard to get and might get traced back to you. Rope is slower but way less messy than knife, and doesn't have the scream factor. To be honest, if you have the skills to get into the car unnoticed and wait it's probably one of the best scenarios for a contract killer. You are really safe in that backseat position too.

This is so random, but I had one of those moments today where I remembered somebody talking shit to me like 10 years ago. He was in the passenger seat and I was in the back and I thought "what if I just took off my belt and choked him with it? Naaa that wouldn't have worked."

This actually convinced me that it actually probably would have worked. Not that I actually would have done something like that, just one of those "I wish I kicked that guys ass" thoughts

I guess the lesson here is don't talk shit to people in the backseat.

It is literally hysteria. Most of the time the men are probably not even looking at them. When people are "staring" at you at the supermarket, they're mostly just looking at the products on the shelf behind you because, you know, it's a supermarket.

After years of martial arts, the one thing that is apparent is muscle-memory. If you train regularly then yes, a lot of this self defense stuff works.

However, one off 45 minute training works for very very few and in specific situations only.

138

u/Karl-Levin 5d ago

You can practice swimming on land as much as you want. You can commit all the moves into your "muscle memory". The day you get thrown into the water will still be rough.

Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.

If you don't practice something against an actively resisting opponent, you won't be able to pull it off in practice. It is easy to do these impressive moves when you know exactly what you partner is going to do but that is just playing make-believe.

The best self-defense is having social awareness and being good at running away from things.

57

u/Alvendam 5d ago

Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.

Last (and hopefully last) fight I was in, I got rocked pretty badly from a punch. I was calm and collected at first, blocking properly and looking for an opening, as I had been trained, until the motherfucker got a clean hit, I was seeing purple and he started pulling my hair. I, luckily and pretty randomly, got a video of said fight to analyze later. It's insane how quickly all the training went out of the window and I shot for a hail Mary suplex, that thankfully worked. Had my opponent been any better at fighting, he had a couple of seconds of me being disoriented, they could've used to fuck me up proper.

and being good at running away from things.

And this is one of many reasons I say that parkour is the best martial art.

28

u/knbang 5d ago

Mike Tyson actually said that quote ("Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.") Professional boxers forget their training when they get hit by him. So I wouldn't beat yourself up over it.

That's why grappling is so effective. An untrained person has virtually no chance once it goes to the ground, and any strikes they deliver from there won't have enough gusto to rock you, just annoy you.

Unless they're better and get side control and start dropping elbows on your face. Lesson: be better

u/JohnnyAppleBead 5d ago

I did karate as a kid, got my black belt and all that. We actually did a lot of ground stuff too. Had a couple years off. I go to roll with someone who had been training for about 6 months. I got my ass handed to me! I knew all the right moves, I had trained them for years, but I hadn't practiced in a couple. So my technique was slow and he was able to react way faster. I just remember being shocked at how useless my body felt. I truly felt like if that guy wanted to do anything to me he could have.

Ground game is where it's at.

I did judo and tae kwon do for years and for the handful of fights I found myself in when I was younger, the judo was fantastic for self defence. Throw a person off and run away. Tae kwon do was my life, but kicking and punching actually aren’t great self defence tactics, especially if your opponent is stronger than you. You can throw just about anyone though, even if you’re much smaller.

Situational awareness and avoidance are the very best self defence techniques that don't seem to be taught at all. By the time it becomes a physical altercation it's too late and most people are pretty badly equipped to deal with that. Things like "punch him in the throat" only work in the minds of people who've never been seriously attacked by someone much bigger than themselves.

To be fair, these situations are literally NEVER going to happen anyway. Is it impossible someone will jump out from the backseat of your car and strangle you? No. Is it probable? Fuck no.

What WILL save lives is basic road safety, fire safety, first aid and kitchen safety. But these things don't get views because keeping your exists clear is not badass looking.

14

u/Beingabummer 5d ago

I feel like the first part should be satire because it's so stupid.

First off, they wouldn't use a rope, they'd use a garrote which slices into your neck and even if you'd get your fingers in there they'd get cut through.

Secondly, who the fuck uses a garrote or a rope or anything like that. They'd use a gun.

Thirdly, the criminal is just sitting there patiently letting the other person get out. No, they'd obviously try to restrain your arms.

Craziest thing is that the woman is wearing a police vest meaning the police are actually wasting time educating people wrongly on something that will never happen.

5

u/Mellowmoves 5d ago

Well not really. Anti garrote training and actually being garrotted should be independent events. If you start living your life in manner that makes it more likely you’ll be garroted because you’ve received anti garrote training then subsequently get garroted. That’s on you buddy.

A couple years ago I was watching one of those prison shows where they interview lifers who don't give a fuck anymore and just air their laundry, this one guy couldn't remember how many people he'd killed (he thought maybe 17?) but you could tell he didn't revel in it, he just did what he had to do to survive inside.....

Anyway the part that stuck with me was when he described sneaking up behind someone and zip-tying their neck being the best way to discreetly kill someone. What stuck with me the most was imagining being on the other end of that method. Just chilling minding your business then you're 100% dead. Just not yet. There isn't anything at all you can do, and no one is touching you, but you're going to suffer.

Even the guy who couldn't remember how many people he killed had a thousand yard stare when mentally recalling doing that to another human.

Agreed! When my bank got robbed and dude literally put a gun in my face and then held it to my head, most of my training went out the window for a good 90-ish seconds. Long enough to get killed for sure. It wasn’t self defense training but training on what to do. When I focused on my cash drawer, it came back and I was able to hook him up with the “funny money” and when he moved on to the next teller, I was able to hit the silent alarm. By the time he left, I was able to follow procedures. Scariest moment of my life for sure. My brain went blank. I just wanted to live and that’s all I could think about but had no clue how to survive when he had a gun.

Also applying full force would break the finger, if for any reason you were fast enough to get it underneath the rope, because no way are your fingers strong enough to find an opening while the attacker is already applying full force.

When I was in school and we had a self defence thing the bulk of it was "make as much noise as possible" because of this. Most women one on one with a man are losing the moment it gets physical - your only hope is to even the odds by getting someone else involved or scaring the attacker off.

Wow. We got "grab the nearest pointy object and then stab them in the eye. Do not stab the stomach like you see in the movies because it's not as effective." If not, use your fingers and push it in their eyes if you get the chance. Also, since I'm in Canada, switchblades are banned here but they were heavily implying with the whole "if you're going home alone at night or going to a party you don't know much about, please bring a sharp object ideally with a good blade with you."

They definitely should've made it longer so the kids can at least remember the parts that aren't as extreme like how to free yourself quickly, identifying exit strategies, and check your surroundings around you to see what you can do if you get into trouble. Iirc, they even had a scenario where it involved drinking. But yeah at grade 7 or 8, it's kinda hard to remember the less extreme parts. There wasn't much crime in the area so some of us didn't take it as seriously either

I don't think you could get your fingers under that rope and even if you did, how would that alleviate the pressure?

If the person behind pulled with both arms and pushed their knees/feet into the back of her seat for extra force, she couldn't even lower hat fucking seat and there would be just so much force applied.

I don't know how effective this sort of strangling is, but a proper choke has a person unconscious in a matter of seconds.

Garrote's are absolutely brutal and virtually inescapable, you use a very thin material like a piano wire and not a bulky AF rope. It's absolutely vile how these things kill people.

Even still, a garrote choke is incredibly more brutal and deadly than a figure 4 chokehold. Your average person cannot get out of a proper figure 4, much less a garrote.

Lastly, if you manage to survive the initial attack of a garrote choke you're going to suffer massive damage and aren't likely going to be able to fight off your attacker or run away. You'll have burst blood vessels, hyper ventilating, uncontrollable coughing, dizziness and vomiting.

The best defense against a garrote is hyper-awareness. Preventing it from happening in the first place is virtually the only way to survive. The French Foreign Legion notably uses a double garrote, which prevents you from loosening the garrote at all. The double garrote will tighten as you try to loosen it, so struggling only helps the attacker.

There's a very good reason we say "watch your back" and more modern military phrase of "got your six".

This is very graphic and r/terrifyingasfuck but thank you for this bit of valuable knowledge. Sobered me up a bit after laughing so hard at the video - it still gets the message across even though it's hella funny.

u/Vinccool96 5d ago

You mean rear naked choke? A figure 4 involves using the legs, and I’ve never seen a choke variant.

An actual killer would use a piano wire garrote and almost chop her head off along with her fingers if they even wanted to do this instead of putting two rounds in to the wind shield.

This whole video is idiotic to say the least.

He sat and waited in that hot car for however long, he'll wait to see where the seat is going. It's not like he's got anything else to do.

u/fork_yuu 5d ago

Yeah.. I'm wondering how often these type of situation would even happen

If someone wants to kill wouldn't they do it outside? It seems hard to get access to inside the vehicle

At which point it is impersonating a police officer ?

She's certainly not one that's for sure, is she be considered like an actor ?

Or as long as she's not interacting in person with others or saying that she is a police officer, there is no issue here.

I'm sure that a lot of people, on tiktok especially, would blindly believe this.

u/kwyjibowen 5d ago

I’m surprised no one else mentioning this. Maybe most people realise she is not police but we should not encourage the mentality that it is ok to slap on a police vest when doing YouTube videos. Whatever happened to false advertising?

Edit: tick tock not YouTube!

u/lyvanna 5d ago

People who think this is a good self defense technique will absolutely think she's an officer.

Coincidentally, people who think it's cool to dress up as an officer are probably the only ones stupid enough to make videos like this

u/NWYUPSIO 5d ago

I find it funny how you start by remarking on how common it was, amongst terrorists and special forces. That is to say, not common at all because most people are not terrorists or special forces.

Hey, fellow terrorists and/or special forces, found the only normie on reddit.

Common amongst terrorist/special forces? A garrote attack?

Anyone with any actual fight training knows exactly what happens when you meet force with force. It usually won’t end well for the smaller person.

Yep. Once a larger person has a hold on you, you're in deep shit.

If the larger person has you from behind, you're fucked.
