palm up palm down defense...


From the closed guard, when I go for the palm up/palm down collar choke, my opponent defends by putting his forearm up and blocking my choke. What attack would you switch to, personally, when this happens. How about what Joe Moriera would do? I'm talking sweeps, subs, anything. I just don't know what to do for this defensive posture.


Try taking the back since he has already bruoght his own arm across his body.

Thank you!! That advice worked like a charm (I was experiencing the same thing)! I also have a question (other thread)...thanks!
