Re: Why don't we practice chokes?

I would think, given aikido's roots, where you would pin an opponent and kill them, a choke would be looked at as taking too long?

If you render someone unconscious due to lack of oxygen-carrying blood to the brain, you better be damn sure you can revive them if need be.
From what I know, things like the vascular neck restraint are incredibly safe. Judo has used them for decades with no reported deaths.
