If you had to bet your life on one submission: this is the one

Some people can push through pain, but there is no pushing though a lack of blood to the brain.

CHallenge Yourself

Get out of your comfort zone. Learn to defend yourself, get in shape and make friends... all at once. What are you waiting for?


The rear naked choke usually starts from the “harness” position, which is with one arm over their shoulder and one arm under their armpit. 


Line it all up

Your choking arm is the one that is on top. Line your elbow up with their chin: from your elbow to wrist gets one carotid artery and your elbow to shoulder gets the other carotid. 

This is making the “V”.

Into the "V"

Grab your bicep and put your other hand on the back of their head, force their neck into the “V” we have made with our other arm. 

Chokes take a few seconds to work, so be patient.
