Hello, and welcome to Jiu-Jitsu On the Go. I have the profound privilege of being able to offer and share the gift of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. I am a stand that everyone in the world gets this Martial Art in their life. It is truly transformational and brings about a higher quality of life for everyone. Here is a little about me!
I began training Jiu-Jitsu in 1997, while stationed in Hawaii, under Grand Master Relson Gracie (ranked white-black) and was awarded my black belt in 2009. I met Master Caique Elias, as a blue belt, and would eventually seek tutelage under him when I became a second degree black belt. As a practitioner who was primarily exposed to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, my game is simple and effective. After 22 years of training (11 years as a competitor, 9 years as a head instructor and academy owner), my teaching style is concept-based, this allows for the student to experience noticeable results immediately. My goal is to impact your game and help you on your journey.
If you like that sound people involuntarily make right before they tap or nap as much as we do...then you're going to love this series.
JJOTG and Professor Steve are proud to bring you this four part online Back Lapel Choke series. Filled with awesome details and fun choking noises, this series will truly tighten up your back mount game. We hope you enjoy and thanks again for watching.
In the first installment of this four part online lapel choke series we will be focusing on fine tuning the grips for this cross collar choke from back mount. Without proper grips and connection our opponent can escape...and it's pretty difficult to make someone tap if they keep getting away.
Now that we've looked at the proper placement of grips, we are going to look at them in more detail when dumping your opponent to the side. Posting on your elbow will create the opportunity for more leverage when you ratchet down your choke.
(I honestly started to feel bad for the Uke in this...
You will encounter opponents that will try to avoid the cross collar choke by dumping to the non-choking side. This is an excellent time to set up our Bow and Arrow choke, and with proper grips, framing and leverage this choke can be brutal.
Now that we have explored how much "fun" the Bow and Arrow choke can be, we are going to look at some variations of sitting up, crossing the legs and straight armlock submissions if the head pops out.
It's always a good thing to have lots of ammo going into a fight!
