I've been choked before whilst wearing a T-Shirt, it's fairly awful, it actually feels better with a Gi because the Gi doesn't cut into the side of your neck :\

By the friend's logic, gi dependent throws shouldn't work either.

Personally, I'd be too concerned about having a knife pulled on me while my hands are busy around his collar to attempt a frontal gi choke and from the back I'd prefer an RNC. People you fight on the street are unlikely to know how to deal with either.

If you're going to introduce knives into your self-defense hypothetical, why not just pull a gun?"Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

Or a grenade, you know, make it realistic.

well you wouldn't need a knife becasue 1345.7 of his buddies would be waiting to curb stomp you if you tried to choke their friend.There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

1) Get a training blade, marker, stick, etc. Put the item in your pocket as you would a knife.
2) Have a TRAINED Judoka/BJJ'er try and choke you out with your shirt. Do not tell them there is a knife in play.
3) Try and pull the knife.
Based on my personal experience here is how it will go, you are 'A' and grappler buddy is 'B'
B comes in for a throw...
A goes for the knife...
B sinks in the throw....
A is airborne.....
A is dealing with the momentary "OH ****" factor that happens when you get thrown, knife momentarily forgotten.
B --LANDS ON-- A, yes, ON, as in crush your damn ribs, ON!
A realizes this was a bad idea.
B sinks in the choke
A panics, knife forgotten..... *
A begins to black out
A taps like a little girl.
* A does not panic
A goes for the knife
B sinks in the choke nice and deep as A is not defending
A passes out
Your not going to be able to get a knife into play against a rained Judoka or BJJ'er. Simply put the shock combined with your body thinking it's going to die makes the knife simply not matter.
