 EJMAS reviews page.
For the neophyte, this book provides a good discussion of the difference between "chokes" and "strangles," as they are commonly called, or, as the author better describes, "oxygen chokes" and "blood chokes." Also noteworthy is the author’s observation that some chokes involve a combination of the obstruction of both blood and oxygen.
A large portion of Classical Chokes is devoted to oxygen chokes, many being of the "pin" variety, e.g., pushing the antagonist against a wall and barring her throat with your forearm.
Another basic choke conspicuous by its absence is the guillotine choke, which should be a staple of a choke-based self-defense system.

For many of the nation's middle-school kids, it is an open secret: choking yourself or having a friend do it for you, passing out and reviving — waiting for that euphoric 10 second high as oxygen rushes back to the brain.
They choke themselves with belts, ropes, ties, their own bare hands, or in the case of Kimberly Wilson, a bicycle chain lock, to deprive their brains of oxygen and get a drug-like high.
This is something the kids do not seem to be talking about openly and often the deaths, when they occur, are misdiagnosed as suicides.
