This is a choke from the sitting back position, (and it’s very similar to the clock choke.)
With your top hand, try to get a deep lapel grip. do this but sliding your thumb under the lapel, pointing your knuckles up and sliding your hand as far up the lapel as you can to get a deep grip. try to flick the guys chin up with a turning motion of your wrist. If you get a bad grip, don’t be too discouraged, you can still finish, it will just take more patience.
Next get a decent, but not too high grip with the other hand, the bottom hand.
Lean over to your side and you pull your tom-grip arms, elbow hard to your hip as you drop your head and get ear to ear.
Finish by giving a had hug as you squeeze, turning your choking grip arm, pulling your elbow closer to your hip, and extending your other arm at the elbow to tighten the lapel.
I think it’s easier to finish this choke by also pulling your bottom hand up into your opponents neck as you pull back with that arm. You donlt have to wait for the lapel to do all the work. Hug the neck with this hand hard by trying to touch your fingertips to the back of their neck.
IF you can’t get the grip, attach with a backward eziekel choke:
S grip your hands.
post your top-arm-side foot on their hip hip
spin your arms as you push with your foot. (You’re spinning to a positions similar to the Bow-and-Arrow position)
Get the Eziekel, gripping inside your back hands sleeve
Rotate your back hand around to the near side of their neck.
Choke, by pushing this had forward into the side of their neck. (Make sure your far hand wrist bone is perpendiculal to thier neck to get the pincher-like pressure here which is the finish)
Back, Choke, Submission »
1 – Your opponent hip escapes, rolling onto their right hip, facing you.
2 – Close the distance by planting your right knee as close to their hips as possible.
3 – Crossface under their head with your left arm.
4 – Windshield-Wiper your right foot up over their legs.
(This is reminiscent of stapling in the knee through gurad pass. In the guard pass you staple, by leading your knee. Here, you staple by leading with your foot.)
5 – Kick your left leg over behind you. This puts your hips behind them. Immediately slide your right knee up behind their shoulders into the heroin needle hook position.
6 – Immediately get Garcia back control with your left arm under their left arm and your right arm over their shoulder. Bottom arm grabs top (left hand grabs right wrist.)
Back, knee on belly, Side Control »
From the back there are basically 4 things your opponents might do with their hands to react. You have the Garcia Back Control grip, meaning you have your arms around them from the back like a seatbelt. It’s important that your bottom arm is grabbing your top arm’s wrist. (While all this is going on, remember to never cross your feet.)
Based on their hand positions, you have 4 options to get to the trigger position of a choke:
1 – Your opponent grabs your bottom arm with both hands:
Let them have your bottom arm. Punch it forward as you shoot your top arm across their neck and grab the back of their shoulder.
2 – Your opponent grabs your top arm with both hands:
Let go of your hands. Slip your bottom hand inside on top of their gripping wrist which is closest to that arm. Move your wrist forward, palm up, and get a gable grip with your top arm on top. Pull your wrists up and towards their shoulder. This will put pressure on their wrist and force them to let go. When they do, shoot your top arm up and grab the back of their shoulder.
3 – Your opponent grabs one wrist with each hand:
Let go of your hands. Grab their wrist gripping your bottom arm with your top wrist. Hold their wrist in place while you pull your bottom wrist up. when it’s free, use your bottom hand to grab their hand that was gripping it previously. forcefully push that wrist down towards your hips and trap that arm against your body with your leg on that side. Simultaneously, shoot your top arm across and grab the back of their shoulder.
4 – Your opponent grabs one of your arms with both hands and won’t let go.
Obviously if your opponent grabs one of your arms and is controlling it, they’ve taken it out of play, and you won’t be able to use it to finish. If they do this, you can still apply a choke with one arm. To do this, get your choking arm as far back behind their shoulder as possible. Once it’s as deep as you can get it, put your head onto their shoulder as you reach up and grab the back of your own neck. To do this, turn your face into their neck so that it’s easier for you to grab the back of your neck. Once you’ve got the back of your own neck, squeeze and flex your bicep and you’ll get the tap.
FINISHING THE CHOKE (with both hands)
When your arm is across their neck they will focus on pulling it down to avoid the choke. When they do, use the palm of your free arm and to push across your forearm, cleaning their grips off of it. When your choking arm is free enough, drive it deeper and get the Dan Severin grip behind their shoulder. Try to put the elbow of your backside arm on their spine. Put your face on top of their shoulder, squeeze and finish.
Rear Naked Choke:
If you can’t finish with the Severin grip, transition to the Rear Naked grip (birdman hand cross, slide to get the rear naked grip). Put your head on top their shoulder so they can’t pry your arms. Finish.
Back, Choke, Submission »
They’re in turtle
You’re on top on thier left side
Your chest is against their back.
You’re on your toes.
1. Wrap your back arm around their stomach, like the top starting position in wrestling
2. grab the lower lapel of their gi, this will limit their mobility and prevent them from rolling away from you quickly.
3. with your front arm, push thier tricep forward, moving their arm up away from their chest (giving your some room to slide your knee in.)
IF they do nothing:
4. slide your front knee in the space you’re created as you flop onto that hip and pull with your gi grip rolling them into your lap.
5. kick your left foot through and get the left hook first. You must get this hook first in order to avoid being put into half guard.
6. hook the back of their other leg with your other leg and elevate their right leg.
7. This will make them uncomfortable. release the hook. They will try to lower their leg, and when they do, take the other hook.
8. Now with reach over their shoulder with your left arm and clasp your left wrist with your right hand.
You now have the back.
IF they roll away from you:
Hop over them and drop your right knee beneath them.
Take the left hook first. (Do this with your left leg which will be top leg.)
then roll them to the left and pick up from step 6 above.
