In this video I show a very powerful choke the Bow and Arrow choke. This is one of those submissions that has many entries, is highly effective and used in high level competition.
A couple of important things to keep in mind
1. like all of the other videos that I have uploaded from the back it is a good idea to start with that pocket between the front of your hips and your opponents lower back. This allows you to have free movement with your legs and will make it much easier to set up s
In this video I show how to defend the Bow and Arrow Choke. This can be a rough place to get caught in and if you dont know how to defend it may lead to some unnecessary taps.
The core of this defense centers around the knowledge that the elbow going behind the shoulder blade is what creates the choking power. Often people will get into this position and just grab a hold of their opponents whole arm. This leads to sometimes defending the choke, but often it just turns into a last ditch eff watch video >>
In this video I show a very simple way to finish from the back. This is the Basic Lapel Choke from the back or the Clock Choke from the back. When performing this technique it is important to remember the concepts that we have learned from the previous videos. Keep that pocket in the back and after setting up your grips keep your fulcrum stationary and move the elbow behind the shoulder. When initially setting up this submission I find it helps to start from double under grips. This gives watch video >>
The Bow and Arrow choke is one of the most powerful submissions in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. You see it used at all levels and by people off all shapes and sizes. There are an almost infinite number of setups that lead to this submission but today I address two of them. I was originally taught to do this move by pushing your opponent onto their side after you have trapped their arm (as shown first in this video). This can be a great setup but leads to spacing difficulties when trying to get the watch video >>
This is one of the sneakier submissions that I will have posted on my youtube channel. It was taught to me by a good friend and great grappler from Brazil (thanks Thiago).
There are not a whole lot of chokes that come from an under grip but this one can come on fast. When performing this choke watch out how much space you give them when bringing the arm around the head or they may turn into you. If you monitor your space effectively enough that should not be a problem, at worst you'll have watch video >>
In this video I show a simple yet effective way to escape the back control.
This escape works well when used in conjunction with your other back escapes. When used alone it can become very easy to counter and can lead to mild success.
Keep in mind that this escape is best preformed when your opponent has a double over grip. When your opponent has a Seatbelt Grip or a Double Under Grip it can be very difficult to get your hips to shrimp away.

In this video I show a common submission from the back the Short Choke. This is a great option for when your opponent is tough to finish and you're having problems feeding the second hand in for the Rear Naked Choke (RNC). Let me start off by saying that the Short Choke can be a vicious choke. Depending on how it is taught, where your forearm is and the intensity at which you go for it you may find yourself losing friends at the academy. Keep this in mind while both repping it out and while watch video >>
In this video I show how to dominate your opponent from the back position and then finish with an armbar. There are many ways to successfully armbar your opponent from the back. In this video I show how to do it off of the T-Grip or the Kimura grip. This is a great starting armbar from the back for students that have not developed the proper hip movement to finish with some of the other variations. I really like this variation because of the domination that the hand grip provides. It frees watch video >>
In this video I show a basic escape from the back called the Monkey Grip. As you can notice from the video the grip is not symmetrical. This is the first video in the two part series where it shows how to defend to the side with the hand contoured to the neck. Check back in to the channel to see how to defend to the other side. Most importantly I discuss the concepts of back escaping. There is no more important concept than "if my back is on the floor then my opponent is not on my back". watch video >>
In this video I show a way to escape the back position by keeping both arms tight and scooting away (or a version of a reverse shrimp). The first, and most important thing about this move, is that you protect that space under your armpits. I refer to the hand positioning as "Home Alone Hands" in the kids class and it just carried over into the adults. This is so important to this move that not only will you not be able to do it if they have a grip under your armpit, but attempting this move w watch video >>
