We got a question about an ole wrestling move called the cradle today in this one.
Our friend who goes by the name “Left Leg Trump” gets the cradle during his BJJ training sessions. But doesn’t know what to do with it.
For those of you who are in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and have never wrestled before. Let me lay down the basics on the Cradle.
It’s primarily a grip between leg and head and is used as an off balancing technique and a pin.
In this video I touch on how I get to the Cradle in Brazilian Jiujitsu and then I go into detail about how I use the position to setup submissions.
In the video I show how to setup one of my favorite no gi ezekiel chokes and how to turn it into a Darce Choke.
Both of these are very effective submissions that I tend to favor using in No Gi BJJ.
If you ever find yourself in this position or want some additional setups for chokes in no gi. Then try these techniques out.
