How To Do Bas Rutten's Rear Naked Choke
Mixed martial arts legend Bas Rutten gives a lesson in mixed martial arts. Learn how to put your opponent into a rear naked
choke and force him to tap out.
- Step 1:
- Thin Hand
- From a standing position behind your opponent, you will want to slide your choke in from his jaw-line,
all the way around the other side of his neck. Make your hand like a thin blade and start sliding from his jaw-line.
- Step 2:
- Slide Through
- Slide all the way through so your elbow hooks under his jaw.
- Step 3:
- Bicep Grab/ Head Push
- Once it's all the way through, grab your bicep and put your hand on the back of his head. This will
make the choke tighter and if he starts head butting back you can stop it.
- Step 4:
- Squeeze And Pull
- Now squeeze your arms tightly and pull your shoulders back.This will force your opponent to tap.
- Bonus Tip
Pulling your shoulder back will close the distance between your arm and
your opponent's neck. This is very important. Some people just squeeze. You don't need to squeeze. You don't need any power
with this. Once you pull your shoulder back you will cause a choke. This is a blood choke. That means your cutting off the
artery at the neck and in the back. So when you flex your bicep and pull your shoulder back, he's going to tap or pass out
because it's going to stop the blood circulation to his brain
