Prof. Orlando Sanchez Demonstrates a Tight Collar Choke from Turtle Position

GB Prof. Orlando Sanchez

A Tight & Extremely Effective Choke

Professor Orlando Sanchez is a black belt, owner, and head instructor at Gracie Barra Pasadena.  He recently made a  trip to Chicago to help teach a seminar with other GBBJJ Technique Chicago Seminar Black belts. The purpose of the seminar was to help Gracie Barra athletes prepare for the Chicago Open.

In this video Professor Orlando explains the collar choke from turtle position. He explains that a lot of guys, especially white and blue belts, tend to take a break in the turtle position, which is where you can make a move to capitalize and implement this very powerful and effective choke.

If you find your opponent in this position, start by placing one arm around your opponent and putting your leg out to establish a good base. Now the next thing you are looking for is to place your other hand across and underneath your opponents chin, just like you were doing a regular back choke. On this choke you don’t necessarily have to get your hand underneath as deep as you can. You need it just enough to get to the opposite side where you can hold a tight grip on the gi.

Now you can use your opposite hand to grab your opponents ankle and slide your head to the back of his head, so your chest goes towards the floor. Begin by switching to your hips and start walking forward like a clock. This is a really tight and extremely effective choke that should have your oppenent tapping out very quickly

    Just wanted to say thanks for these instructional videos!!! Good videos!!! I like to learn BJJ and add it to my Kudo Ryu Jiu-Jiitsu that I am founding!!! Very helpful technique!!! Although I dont do Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu officially, I do hold a 5th Degree Black Belt in another Jiu-Jitsu school, and look forward always to integrating more and more Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into my Kudo Ryu Jiu-Jitsu, and would not mind the opportunity to officially rank in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, although I`m also just happy to keep learning it unoficially without grading…as long as I can keep learning indefinately, as I already at least am certfied to teach Jiu-Jitsu. My Jiu-Jitsu teachers practice with the Brazilians, and their Jiu-Jitsu is also a hybrid school of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as well. Congratulations and thanks for these great instructional videos!!! I needed these instructional videos for my Kudo Ryu Jiu-Jitsu!!!
