I had the pleasure of watching my son learn a few for the two years he was doing BJJ. A rear naked choke or guillotine from behind worked quite well when done right and resulted in a quick tap out. He also learned a frontal neck choke that used your forearm crossed over the throat and the opponents gi collar. Both when done well resulted in a quick end or passing out which the instructors there never let happen when his opponent didn’t wanna tap. While I’ve never done either myself I watched them be done in person many times and could probably perform them if I had to.
He also learned a few other ways to make people submit. One of which was quick was the arm bar. Take em down, gain the mount, flip over and over extend their arm backwards between his legs. If done right to someone unknowing it’s over quick or ‘pop’ goes the elbow or shoulder.
Wish he’d go back

It is in fact lethal force if held for a certain time. Normally 20 seconds or so.
I saw a kids eyes roll back in his head because he didn’t want to tap out when my son was applying one. Instructor had to tell my son to let off. Kid woulda for sure passed out at least.

We were practicing chokes on Sunday afternoon [ one of my co workers ]. We hold out to just before passing out then tap out. Everything was just fine after about 15 minutes of working on each other.

I leave to go have dinner with the girlfriend at her parents house [ it was mandatory his 5 daughters and 2 sons attended every sunday, big family dining table sat everyone easily. Feeling fine, having a great dinner some 3 hours after the training.

Got up from the table, got 4-5 steps and without any notice, I passed out. Fell straight back and hit my head causing bleeding from both ears [ not good ]. I woke up to the old man standing over me and asking me if I was okay. Head was ringing like a church bell, serious headache.

Someone had called an ambulance which arrived a few minutes after I came to. I'd stayed laying on my back at the request of the old man. They took me to the local hospital where they discovered I had a severe concussion. Order the girlfriend to not allow me to sleep for at least the next 18 hours. Of course I got back to her fathers place and went up stairs to lay down, telling everyone I understood the risks but I was going to sleep for awhile anyway.

So, when you get someone near passing out in a choke, there can be residual affects if you're not smart enough to tap out before you're nearly out. I've put quite a few turds to sleep on the streets working in uniform. As I mentioned elsewhere, I didn't feel the need to be tap dancing with some asshat who was going to resist my taking them into custody, so when opportunities presented to get the choke on them, that's what I did. And when the life faded from them enough I set them down, rolled them over and cuffed em by the time they could recover.

As others have stated, you hold it enough time until you feel the resistance fade to compliance, or as soon as they have gone unconscious. Hold it any longer than necessary to affect the results you want, looking at potential harming them permanently or killing them. All the chokes I put on people to gain compliance were against academy training rules [ no chokes to be applied under any conditions ] and thus against dept SOP policies. Never heard one complaint from the dept, nor the turds who were put to sleep, but remained uninjured.

Gotta know when the hold, and know when to fold em. They were deemed illegal because most street cops don't know when it's time to let em go.
Two things
Sadly I think most cops nowadays wouldn’t know how to properly choke somebody. And if they did with all the phones that would get whipped out and record it even if they could they probably wouldn’t for fear of being the leading headline.
Glad you’re ok. Musta been kinda worrying to go thru that.

Welll just guessing since it’s not been practiced but maybe several foot-stomps with your heel. Or if it is a real confrontation and both their arms are occupied choking you a finger or thumb in their eye might make em let up?
guessing you really only have a few seconds before a good choke puts you out so either the above or I flick open my edk and jam it in their inner thigh and filet it.

Those pics you posted above are basically defenses for what son learned in BJJ, especially the one with you on the ground. But they also taught him to gain the mount and lean into it using his forearm and the opponents collar to prevent the defense you show and perform the choke.
I like the second set and upward arm sweep though.

I'm unlikely to run into a bbj BG trying to choke me out that knows a counter to a counter.
In the second, it's hard to see but I've moved my right hand to his left wrist and trapped it to my body while my left arm then buckles his left elbow. The crumbling to the ground starts there. He can't get away, and he's no longer a threat.

That sequence shown took maybe 5 seconds showing it in stages. On the street, it's maybe 1-1.2 seconds and the threat is neutralized. If there's any real struggle at all, my elbow is primed to pump shots to his face in the next to last picture but the elbow can make shots to the face as soon as the arm is cross body.
And that’s why I had him doing the BJJ. He was unlikely to run into somebody equally skilled. Growing up and now almost 16 I thought it good to get him some confidence and ability to defend himself. World is even more dangerous now than when I was a kid
