North South Choke

0 162

The North South Choke is a submission technique in which you use your body weight and your arm to apply pressure to your opponent's neck while in the north-south position. Although it takes some practice to master, it has been proven to be extremely effective, and many elite grapplers have made it their go-to move.

How to set up The North South Choke?

There are several ways to construct a north-south choke in BJJ. Here are some common methods:

  1. From a failed mount: If you attempt to mount your opponent but they bridge or otherwise resist, you can move to the North-South position. Set up the choke by reaching your arms under their armpits and securing the grip on the back of their head.

  2. From side control: You can move from side control to North-South by stepping over your opponent's head and sliding your hips up to their chest. You can secure the choke once you're in position by reaching your arms under their armpits and securing the grip on the back of their head.

  3. From the turtle position: You can transition to the North-South position by reaching under your opponent's armpits and pulling them up onto their side if they are in the turtle position (on all fours with their head down). You can then secure the choke by sliding your hips up to their chest.

Regardless of how you set up the choke, it's critical to keep your opponent under control and your weight heavy on them to prevent them from escaping or countering your submission attempt. Furthermore, rather than attempting to force the choke and endangering your training partner, apply it gradually and with control.
