The North/South position can be one of the best places to be. There are plenty of great submission and transition options available. In the last video I covered the Kimura from North/South. This is a very simple and effective submission but it is also very easy to defend against. One of the most annoying defenses is when your opponent simply grabs a hold of their pants or their own belt. There is an easy counter to this move that I call the "tie off". I absolutely love when my partners/

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 more

The Kimura from North/South can be a very strong submission that works in both Gi and no Gi. I really like this position because it can be difficult to escape. By staying heaving on your opponent's head and squeezing your knees you have a lot of control and a lot of options. Over the next few videos I am going to cover a lot of options and submissions.The first order of business is to get your arms to the "inside" your opponents arms. Often my students have difficulties making this trans more

This Amazing is one of the most powerful submissions from the North/South position. Few people have seen it and the transition into the move is quick and easy to do after you practice it.

The setup for this move is the same as the previous North/South videos. Make sure you are dominating correctly and have your opponent up on his/her side. Once you have that Kimura grip on the arm it is important to make space by pulling up.

If you pull up and it breaks the grip on the hand then you're gre more

In this video I show the Padlock submission. This is a very dominating/tight grip that can be the answer when people try to defend against the North/South (head sit) Kimura position.One of the things that needs to be addressed is the fact that this can be low percentage. Although this move is low percentage it is also low risk. It is for that reason that I still view this move as a viable option. Even if you can't get the submission it still leaves you in a dominate position.Once you loc more

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 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 more

Being trapped in North/South can be one of the most frustrating things while grappling. It is for this reason that we need to have a set of defenses ready to get out of bad positions.

I start the series of escapes from North/South with a transitional escape to Turtle. This can be a fantastic escape that is very useful AND extremely easy as long as you have the correct timing and you bridge in the right direction.

Because this move is so dependent on timing you must practice this a lot before more

The Head Scissor is an old school move. I have seen it multiple ways and depending on how you do this move can vary on the type of finish (choke, neck crank, face squeeze). It's important that you know the rule set that you're competing under before you try and use this move as some competitions will not allow it.

This particular setup comes off of the North/South Kimura position that we have been working on in the previous videos. If you remember I really emphasize the shin over the bicep. more

Escaping North/South can be one of the most frustrating things in the world, especially against a skilled opponent. Throughout the remainder of my North/South instructional videos I will post a few escapes. This is the first one in a series. Although it is low percentage as demonstrated it can be VERY effective in forcing your opponent to create space and allow you to escape.

Like in previous videos, the first thing that we need to understand is that space is made on the way DOWN, not the more
