Preventing A Rear Naked Choke is Easy – Choke Yourself First!

That title might sound like a gimmick, but it is absolutely true.

I have had about 80 pro grappling matches in my career, and I have only suffered 5 submission losses. 4 of them were rear naked chokes, but none of those were done from the back mount with hooks in.

You might be wondering how I could be rear naked choked without the back mount, but the answer is simple – it was in a transition. Each one of them was during a scramble and my opponent locked on the choke before the back mount was established. That had a lot to do with my my work on the Back Trap System.

I have NEVER been submitted while the back mount with hooks have been established. I have been back mounted by Roberto “Cyborg” Abreu, Ronaldo “Jacare” De Souza, Pablo Popovitch, and Joao Gabriel Rocha and was able to escape without being caught.

How?

If you are skeptical (and a little skepticism is healthy), try it out and let me know how it works for you.
