How To Do Bas Rutten's Wind Pipe Crusher

Mixed martial arts legend Bas Rutten gives a lesson in mixed martial arts. Learn how to perform a rear naked choke that crushes your opponent's windpipe.

Step 1:
Slide In
With your opponent in front of you and their back to you, slide your lead hand underneath their jaw, but not all the way through. Stop when your hand passes their jaw.
Step 2:
Forearm Down
Clasp your hands together, with your leading-arm hand palm facing down. Now make sure your other forearm is on his back so he can't pull it forward. Pull your forearm straight down his back. This also creates a leverage point.
Step 3:
Pull Back
When you are ready to apply the pressure to your opponent's windpipe, pull your crushing arm's shoulder backwards. That will apply the pressure using your forearm and crush his windpipe.
