Hey guys! I got inspired by my brother to make a website and I have finally got it up and running. I will be sharing all sorts of training drills, strategies, techniques, sports psychology and much more.
For today, I posted one of my techniques that I have developed almost a decade ago that I haven't shared before. Check out this page for the back story behind this move and the video (Click the link below the image): http://DavidAvellan.com/y-choke
If you like what you see, give this a bump for me. Thank you and enjoy!
P.S. > A lot of people ask if this is legal. Yes it is.IBJJF Rulebook
6.5.6 (Minor Penalties) "When an athlete, without using the gi, strangles his/her opponent using both hands, or applies pressure to the opponent’s windpipe using the thumb."
Pretty clear by that rule that it is legal. What the rule describes is using both hands to "strangle", where the thumbs would be passing on top of the Adams apple.
That is not to say that a referee might misinterpret what is going on.
