Back in 2013, Rodolfo Vieira, the 2011 absolute BJJ world champion, made a video teaching Graciemag readers a no-gi technique. Enjoy it with the translated transcript below.

“Hi, guys; here’s a technique I’ve been doing since I first started training for the 2013 ADCC. It’s a triangle choke from side control. From side control with both knees on the side of his body and the hand to hand grip. First I put his arm on the ground and come with my knee over it. Then I switch the hook on his arm from one leg to the other. After that, I hug his head from behind, lifting it from the ground.
