Todays video is one which is most important for gi grapplers.
Probably the most common choke when grappling in a gi is the cross collar lapel choke (juji jime).
A lot of people waste energy when trying to defend this choke. They either try and use strength by pulling there opponents arms to release the hold, they move there head back to try and create space so a choke can not be applied and some even try and push there chin into there gi so as to avoid the choke.
Many times one of the main criteria of grappling is neglected in defending this particular choke. That criteria is good leverage.
The video shows how to use leverage, and the least amount of energy to successfully get out of any danger from the submission. Enjoy
