Anaconda Defense

The Anaconda Choke is a vicious submission that’s tough to escape. Here’s one way you can stop the choke, and even end up in side-control.

Note that you MUST start this move early, before your arms across your body and he rolls.

The steps to this technique are:

1 – Wrap his waist with your right arm
2 – Post your right foot on the ground, knee up
3 – Under hook his right leg with your left arm as he rolls
4 – Go to side control

If he keeps his arm wrapped around your neck when you reach side-control, finish with the Von Flue choke (not shown here).

Keep training!
