Intro Jiu-Jitsu Day 24
Intro to BJJ White Belt Curriculum Vol 2 | Galvao • 18m
1- BOW-AND-ARROW CHOKE FROM BACK: The bow and arrow choke is named for its appearance once you’ve sunk in the choke. You grip the collar and the leg and extend your partner so that it looks like you’re pulling back the string on a bow. Once you have your hand in the collar and you change your angle with a belt-line hook, your partner is as good as tapped!
2- DUCK UNDER BACK CHOKE ESCAPE: There are a number of ways to escape when someone has control of your back. The duck under back choke escape has you directly defend the choking hand first. Once you escape your head, it’s just a matter of time before you shift inside his hooks and face him to escape to his closed guard.
