More Awesome BJJ Submissions
Kimura Armlock – This one is also called the chicken wing and the figure 4 armlock. This submission was named after the famous judoka, Masahiko Kimura. Masahiko Kimura used this move to defeat Master Helio Gracie during a grappling match in 1951. This is a powerful move that forces your opponent’s arm behind their back and puts immense pressure on the shoulder and elbow joint. The kimura is mostly applied from guard and side mount.
Straight Ankle Lock – This submission is also known as the straight foot lock or Achilles lock. It’s also one of the most commonly used, and fundamental leg submission holds that you’ll learn. This ankle lock will make your opponent tap out because of two main reasons: 1 – muscle and ligaments on the top of the foot will be hyperextended. 2 – The Achilles tendon at the back of ankle will be compressed.
To perform the straight ankle lock, you control one of your opponent’s legs with your own legs, then apply pressure to their foot and ankle using your arms.
Short Choke – Also know as the Hadaka Jime, this submission is typically applied from the rear, or back position. At times, you will not need to engage your opponent with a full rear naked choke, and the short choke will work just as well. The short choke uses your forearm to choke out your opponent by closing off the windpipe.
