Re: Why don't we practice chokes?

The chokes don't happen immediately, you have 30 seconds or so to start feeling light headed and realize that things are getting dark!
Are you talking about a choke that closes the carotid or one that crushes the airway? Cause 30 seconds is a *long* time in my experience. 5-10 seconds is what I'd normally say when I've seen it done well.

There's a good article here I just found surfing around on the topic.
