More Lapel Chokes from Side Control

So, last week I posted some instructional videos for setting up and securing some trachea chokes from side control.  Today we have more of the same.  Perhaps the biggest upside to adding these chokes to your arsenal of attacks is that even if you don't succeed in getting the submission, your opponent has to fight to recover position and defend against the choke--which enables you to have the opportunity to transition either to other submissions from side control or to a better position (e.g., knee on belly or mount).  In the following videos, you'll find several variations on a similar theme--namely, how to get your opponent's nearside arm trapped so that (a) you have access to his cross side collar, and (b) his near side hand isn't available to defend against the choke once you secure the grip.  In the first video, they show how to set up and trap the arm from side control.  In the second video, they show a nice sweep to side control--which traps your opponent's arm in transition.  Finally, the third video involves starting from the north-south position before transitioning back to side control. Each video has essentially the same ending--namely, an opponent who can't defend against the lapel choke from side control! So, watch, learn, and go train!
