As we continue at 10th Planet Van Nuys to work on our North South positioning I wanted to share another variation of the North South Choke. Alder taught this choke earlier in the week and I am loving it. The crossing of your hands underneath the head helps tighten up the choke and makes it very easy to finish. This is definitely a choke I am going to focus on.
Below is a brief tutorial by Jeff Monson in which he covers his variation of the North South Choke. I really like that Monson points out how this is not a strength choke. This technique is all about having the proper hand and body positioning.
