Cross choke
(Guard, with gi)

A Technique from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

These techniques should only be practiced with the supervision of an experienced instructor.
Practicing the moves incorrectly could result in serious bodily injury or death.

I begin by placing my right hand deep in my opponents collar.
Next I place my left hand under his chin deep in the collar on the other side.
I then clench both my hands into tight fists.
I finish the choke by bringing both my elbows to the floor and pulling outward with both hands.
