Attacks from backmount position using the gi

Different basic gi chokes plus an armbar setup from the backmount position.

Starting out by me having the back of my opponent.

First I try to get the regular rear naked choke. I slide one arm under my opponents chin to set it up

He knows what I'm up to, so he is defending by controlling my right arm so I can't lock it in.

So instead I reach behind my neck with my left hand and use my head and left arm to apply pressure for the choke. One arm RNC! :)

Next one. I am holding having my opponents back again.

I use my left hand to turn and grab my opponents near collar. Turning it makes it easier to grip.

I pull down the collar with my right hand and feed it to my left hand with which I grab high.

I now put my left hand behind his neck and there you have the submission.

Here is another common choke I can do when I have the collar grip as above. This time I throw my right leg over my opponents hips.

I grab his pants by the knee.

Turn to the side and apply this very effective choke.

If he won't tap, I can switch to an armbar. I let go of the pants and grab his arm instead.

Throw my left leg over his head.

And apply the armbar.
