This New Choke Is Seriously Nasty!




For this week’s #TechniqueTuesday check out this insane choke by Mike Bidwell of BJJafter40.com! This choke works like a Baseball Bat Choke except without the gi.


Mike dubbed this the “GI JOE With KUNG FU GRIP Choke” because of the manner in which you place your hands in order to perform the maneuver. G.I. JOE toys from the 70’s and 80’s were notorious for possessing this patented grip.




Check out Mr. Bidwell demonstrating the technique below!



Below is an instructional on how to perform this technique!
