I FUCKING LOVE TRAINING AT MARCELO'S ACADEMY!!!! Alright I got that out there. Yesterday we learned a few different chokes. The first was simple guillotine defense on a double leg takedown. We were also taught how to counter the guillotine by gripping the opponents back by grabbing reaching over his shoulder and grabbing his gi and turning to his side, tapping his knee and taking him down. We were then taught a counter to this turning away counter. The guillotine attemptee would let the choke go and counter by underhooking the arm that reached over the back, grabbing the other arm's sleeve just above the elbow, stepping inside of your opponent and dropping to your knee right by his far side foot and then throwing your opponent over in a dragging and tripping style of motion.
The other two chokes we learnt were gi chokes and right at this moment i don't really have the patience to explain them both. HOWEVER I MUST INFORM ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WILL READY THIS that my new favorite submission is the BOW AND ARROW CHOKE! It's so damn cool and effective. Both of the gi chokes we were taught were insta-taps if applied correctly, especially the Bow and Arrow choke. I cant wait for my next lesson tomorrow. Until the next fanpost, enjoy reading.
