Lapel Choke From Back Mount

Professor Michio Grubbs demonstrates a lapel choke from the back mount.  He is assisted by Coach Eric Rivard.

Cross Lapel Choke from the Back

In the video, Professor Michio starts the technique by positioning himself on coach Eric’s Back.  Then he uses an Over-Under grip that some call the ‘Harness Grip” however, at Excel, it is referred to as the “Seat Belt Grip.”  The arm that is placed under the opponent’s armpit has the ‘Free Hand’ that is used to set up the potential choke grip for the arm that is over the top of the opponent’s shoulder. As demonstrated in the video, it’s important to drop the shoulder of the arm used to apply the choke, get the tip of your elbow to the front of your opponent’s shoulder, and insert the thumb of the hand (same side arm) into the opponent’s far collar.

Next, the ‘Power Hand’ is inserted to establish a second grip.  The ‘Power Hand’ is attached to the arm that is underneath the opponent’s armpit.  As shown in the video, it is essential that executors of this technique get a good grab of the opponent’s Gi, pull and attached the material to the opponent’s body, and then pull the material toward the opponent’s belly button.

To finalize the choke, Professor Michio pulls the elbow of the choking arm until it is behind the opponent’s shoulder.  Then he drives his wrist upward and underneath the opponent’s jaw line.

Professor Michio completes the video by demonstrating the Cross lapel choke by taking the back from the bottom half-guard position.

This move requires attention to detail.  Make sure to watch closely and train accurately.
