I’M BACK!. Canto Choke (Ashi Jime) from top half guard.
Sorry for taking so long to post new content. It’s been more challenging amidst the pandemic.
The Canto Choke is very versatile in its variations. You can do it from top position and from bottom guard as well.
In this variation, I show it from top half guard. I don’t need to get out of the position, I can do it while my leg is trapped. It a bit harder than in other top positions (side, modified scarf hold) but it’s much less expected.
Some pointers – if you hurt his neck, your grip is too deep. If the choke doesn’t work well, it’s not deep enough. I place my head on the mat to base and extend my arm so the blade of my hand rests right on his arteries.
