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

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 more

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 more

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 more

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 more

In this video I show an alternate setup for the Arm Triangle. Everything about the submission is the same but requires a little more control over your body and a smoother transition between Side Control on one side to Side Control on the other.

This is a very common setup that all BJJ players should have. As I state in the video it works well against people who lift with their whole arm instead of just their elbow.

Try your best not to "hop" during this transition and focus on being smooth a more

In this video I show how to do a Reverse Armbar from Closed Guard. This is a pretty common move that you see attempted throughout the ranks but finished with very little frequency. This is due to the fact that the setup is tedious and the hip movement required to dominate the shoulder is difficult.

This is a great move to attempt on someone who has no posture and will allow you to get a "1 under one over" grip. Take note of how my hand grip is. This is a VERY important detail. The arm th more

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 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". more

In this video I show the Straight Arm Lock off of the Americana setup. This is a fairly common defense for when you start to dominate the arm.

I focus mainly on the defense for when people straighten the arm and then turn the thumb down towards the floor. I do this, as opposed to the traditional thumb towards the ceiling option because if they are advanced enough to straighten the arm then they are probably also smart enough to turn their thumb towards the floor. If you watch the whole video more
