We’re back and in our new video, we share one of our favorite chokes with you: North / South Choke from Side Control. We’re going to start off in traditional side control. Without your opponent noticing your going to grab the very bottom of your far side lapel.
You are holding side control and you are going to let your opponent bridge into you just enough to create a space between the two of you. This creates the opportunity to feed your gi through that space. You’ll then pass your gi off to your bottom hand, palm down, still grabbing the end of the lapel.
Then you’ll flatten your opponent out. Your right arm will be flat on the mat, palm down, wedged against his hip so that when you travel North/South he doesn’t follow you.
As you start to travel your right knee will end up where your left knee is. You’ll post your left foot out. You’ll then start to rotate and finish the choke.
Check out more details here in our video.
We hope you enjoyed this week’s North/South Choke.
