Its just another less safer version of a choke hold after all. (isn't it?)

Or how about grabbing their windpipe with your hand and squeezing it.. Or is that too dangerous??

These dumb questions have been bugging me for years so I thought I would bite the bullet and ask you guys.
I'm pretty sure a normal choke is fine, but squeezing the trachea is not allowed.
