No Gi "Brabo" Choke from Top Half Guard
The Brabo Choke can be a match-ending submission. And one of the best times to apply it is when you’re on top in the half guard..
In this technique Marcio finds himself in Marco’s half guard, but without the gi.
Marcio wraps his right arm around his opponent’s left arm and cups his head with the other hand.
Marcio inserts his right arm even deeper, cups his opponent’s head with both hands and pulls it towards himself
He now circles his left arm free…
…and locks his arms together, trapping his opponent’s head and one arm.
Marcio applies the choke by driving forward and lifting his right shoulder up.
