In most styles of Filipino martial arts, the shaft and the butt of the stick are employed to execute locks, throws and chokes with the latter considered the most lethal. This particular defense against a choke with a stick involves a throw. Needless to say, practicing throws and takedowns should be done on a mat or soft surface to prevent injuries.
