Tag Archives: Rear-Naked Choke

The rear-naked choke is the premier choking technique in MMA as well as one of the most effective and frequently used submissions, alongside the guillotine choke, triangle choke, armbar and kimura. It is a choke used when behind the opponent in back control. A fighter encircles one of his arms tightly around the opponent's neck and uses his other arm to tightly secure the hold. From there, a fighter forces a submission or renders the opponent unconscious by squeezing the encircled arm at the elbow's crook. The rear-naked choke is a versatile blood choke that can be applied from a variety of different positions-including standing, sitting, kneeling, on one's hands and knees, supine or prone-and any position in which you can establish back control.
