Holiday Von Flue ChokeAug 06, 2020
Happy Holidays everyone! I had a member of my special Mind Blown Club ask me what some of my biggest learning for the year have been. One of the amazing things about life and Jiu-Jitsu is you never stop learning and there's always more room to grow and improve.
Besides the Matt Jones footlock which we did a long video on and is included in the Hidden Jiu-Jitsu VIP section, this is one of my favorite new techniques I've been playing around with. It is a very simple set up for the Von Flue choke that makes it extremely difficult to get out.
For those that have seen my cross-side escapes series, I'm really big on establishing an under-hook so I can get back to my knees and go for a take down. Lots of times though, people will grab my neck to attempt a Guillotine. By blocking their knees and taking them down not only end up on top but we have this super simple finish!
It's a great technique any time you end up cross side and they have your head wrapped for a Guillotine. I also show how you can even go into it from a half guard position.
Special thanks to my good friend Maynard for helping me film this, and giving me the idea to show this. Coming from a wrestling background he told me from the turtle position he has his neck grabbed a lot so we worked on this simple solution and attack.
Happy holidays everyone, I hope you enjoy the video and can't wait for you all to see the stuff I have coming to Hidden Jiu-Jitsu next year!
