I was always taught that when receiving chokes you immediately put your throat into the nook of ukes elbow to avoid the immediate danger of passing out (which can take around 2 seconds). However, in light of information gleaned from this web site on chokes this seems to be erroneous because it is actually the reaction in your arteries which causes you to pass out rather than the pressure on the trachea. Therefore it would seem that this would actually speed up any choke.

I was hoping to do show ikkyo from a choke but I do not want give incorrect advice. Does anyone know the answer?
