BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU VIDEO Grappler's Handbook Vol. 2 Author Jean Jacques Machado Shows You Two Finishes From the Mount"The idea in jiu-jitsu is to get into positions [and] learn how your opponent react[s]," Machado explains. "And [depending] on his reaction, I would choose a technique I want [to use] to finish him." With Grappler's Handbook co-author Jay Zeballos, Machado then moves into demonstrating two finishes from the mount position. His left hand grips the left side of Zeballos' collar, with his own right hand stabilizing for balance. Zeballos turns to the left in reaction to Machado's mat-slap noise feint, playing straight into Machado's collar grip. Machado takes advantage of the exposed right side of the collar and moves to grip it at the shoulder with his right hand, with the palm facing down. With both sides of the gi collar cross-gripped, Machado moves his elbows close to his chest and drops his head, squeezing to complete the choke.
