Rickson Gracie’s ‘nutcracker’ choke

Often in BJJ we reach a good position, but our opponent seems to have missed rehearsal and forgets to give us the arm or the space we need to finish the way we intended. 

Oh, well. Life, like jiu-jitsu, is not a choreographed ballet. 

But both onstage and on the mat, there is a nutcracker. In the case of BJJ, it’s a powerful and very simple choke with the potential to give you lots of wins.
