Para o texto em português vá para @demianmaiabjj_filiados (For more posts about BJJ theory go to @demianmaiabjj_affiliation) ATTACKING THE BACK (2nd part) - SUBMISSIONS There are 3 fundamental phases to attack the back of your opponent: 1. going to the back position, 2. to control the back position, 3. submitting.  In the previous post, Attacking the Back (1st part), I talked about phase 2 (controlling the back position). Now I will address phase 3 (submitting). We can attack almost any part of the opponent's body when we are on the back position (neck, arms, legs, wrists...). However, most submission attacks are to the neck. There is a hierarchy of positions in the BJJ and within the positions there is a hierarchy of phases (see previous post). And within each phase there is also a hierarchy of options. In submitting from the back, attacking the neck is option number one. The neck is one of the most vulnerable parts of our body. As Hélio Gracie would say “Never trade a neck for an arm. A fighter can let his arm break, but for the neck there is no tough guy, if he resists, he will sleep”. More than that, attacking the neck decreases the opponent's chances of escaping from a dominated position. We don't need to move around a lot or open up a lot of space to be able to get a choke. Paradoxically, little movement also facilitates the opponent's defense. An efficient choke begins with the ability to position your hands under the opponent's chin and apply constant pressure. To become actively offensive while attacking from the back we must constantly practice the technique of "hand fighting" and manipulating the opponent's head. It is very important to dominate these two techniques in order to expose the opponent’s neck.  In other posts I will talk about going to the back position (phase 1 of attacking the back) and techniques to expose your opponents neck.
