7 GIFs of stickchoke from Blindspot S01E01

"Blindspot" is a TV series which debuted Sep 21, 2015. It focuses on a mysterious tattooed woman, "Jane Doe" (Jaimie Alexander), who has lost her memory and does not know her own identity. The FBI discovers that each tattoo contains a clue to a crime they will have to solve.

The pilot episode treated viewers with 3 fights, one of which featured stickgrappling. I made 7 animated GIFs of the fight involving stickgrappling!


Full Scene

Scene spliced up into 5 GIFs

Watch out Jane! The building's Super is coming after you with a knife!


Jane "defangs the snake" on the Super's "Angle #2" attack!

Bet you that the random bad guy regrets sneaking up on Jane Doe!

Jane Doe was not able to properly apply the stickgrappling version of the Rear Naked Choke (RNC).
It turns into a Strangle. In the empty-hand RNC, the crook of the elbow should be used to constrict the neck and not the forearm bone right on the adam's apple which is a strangle.

Bonus GIF isolating just for the botched Stick Choke
