In this video I go over the north/south choke with three different finishing options. Often times grapplers will write off a move as “not for them” when in reality a simple variation is all that is necessary to make a technique work perfectly well for them.
Here we look at a one handed entry, a gable grip finish and a crisscrossing wrist variation. Grapplers such as Jeff Monson, Marcelo Garcia and Rani Yahya have all shown the effectiveness of this choke at high levels of competition – but each has a unique finish.
Try these variations and see which works best for you!
