Rear Naked Video Lessons : Oldest Choke in the Book

One of the most widely used finisher in all of MMA.

A part of the the BJJ arsenal, the rear naked is the quinatasential "Bear Hug" around the neck. It's a crowd pleaser, and a fighter pleaser as well.

Nothing beats feeling like you are about to pop you're aggressor head off.

Take notes.

For a little Bill Nye Action, we look to Fight Science for an inside track.

The Takeaway -
*Notice this is not to (cut off air supply), but to stop the flow of blood to the brain. Much more effective. So notice wear the pressure points, on either side of the trachea.

Here is a great step by step.

*Great points on where to place your hands while "not choking" , where to hold onto your opponent - 'scapula'

*Where to grab ,and how to secure a tighter position with your hands...

*How to apply pressure in the choke.

Looks easy. I know. But is it really?
The placement of the hands, and the choke are the toughest. Avoiding the instinct to arm squeeze or hold the head are habits you have to break...but... if you don't believe its as easy as 1,2,3

And what video series is complete without a hot girl?

Yes. We can find a way to work one in. Try this on for size.

Joanna over at the lovely being choked out. What a champ.
