A teacher at Gracie Terra in Rio de Janeiro, Vitor Terra has been sharpening his weapons for both classical and no-gi BJJ, and in today’s lesson he shows a move he adapted from his classical BJJ training in order to torment his no-gi opposition.
The baseball choke, normally used in gi matches, has as its main characteristic the use of the lapels while the opponent gets choked due to the arms being crossed. In Vitor’s opinion, an adaptation comes in handy so that the technique can be used in no-gi.
With his knee on his opponent’s stomach, Vitor teaches how to pass your forearms around your opponent’s neck, adjust the hand-to-hand grip, and switch the base to squeeze the choke. Check it out in this video:
