Top Ten Jiu Jitsu Submissions
How to apply my top ten favorite BJJ submissions with video instruction
Jiujitsu is an ever evolving art form. It is still argued today of where jiu jitsu originated. On the other hand it is not argued who made the sport what it is today. The Gracie name is the holy grail to many in the grappling community. The family revolutionized jiujitsu with their extreme attention to technique, incomparable skills, and unmatchable training regimen. To this day only on American by the name of EDDIE BRAVO can say he submitted a Gracie, and with the sport growing as it rides the coat tails of MMA, grappling has never been as popular as it is today, and looks to be still rising.
#1. Rear Naked Choke - Get your Hooks in and Sink it in
The mother of all submissions, any semi serious fighter knows this submission. I have won many jiu jitsu matches with this submission. The difficulty level is very low while the effiecency of this choke is out of the roof.
#2. Armbar - (mount position)
The arm bar is a common fighter favorite simply because of the multiple postitions you can apply this sub in a fight or match. The Arm Bar is one of the more difficult submissions to perfect It took me two months after I learned this submission to finally be able to actually submit an opponent with it. The Arm Bar hyperextends the elbow joint and its legiments. Often if a fighter does not submit their arm will be broken.
#3. Triangle Choke
The trianlge choke is a long legged fighter's bread and butter submission using their long lower limbs to cut off the air to the brain. This is my personal favorite because of my long legs. This submission also allows many transitions to other postions and submissions depending on how your oppenents defends.

The kimura key lock attacks the shoulder joint. This submission is often used to sweep opponents rather than submit them. I recently won the AGA jiu jitsu competion with this particular submission.
Need a Gi?????
Gameness Gi's have rose to be one of the most popular Gi's in the sport due to its lightweight qualities and outstanding quality.
Bad boy has been at the pinnacle of high performance Gi's for many years now and on top of their quality they look amazing :)
#5 Guillotine Choke
The Guillontine is a beginner's go to submission. This choke is often applied when your opponent shoots for a take down and his neck area is easily accessible. The difficulty level is very low allowing beginner's some sucsess.

#6 Ankle Lock
This submission is in trouble of being banned entirely, many grappling tournaments do not allow ankle lock because its high impact on the ankle bone and joint. My last tounament band ankle locks as well as insided and outside heel hooks.

#9. The Arm Triangle
The arm triangle is a great submission for an aggressive opponent. Slap this on him and he's begging to be let loose in seconds.
# 10. The D'arce Choke
The D'arce choke is different kind of choke than the rear nakeds and triangles the d'arce unlike other chokes cuts of the blood to the brain rather than air making this choke a little more legthy to get the tap.
