This video I discuss the difference between playing the deep lasso position and using a shallow lasso which I generally prefer. The deep lasso is more of a specific attack, where the shallow lasso is more commonly used to transition to all sorts of other guard positions as well as use as a defense and initial entanglement. I also go through the utility and aspects of the meregali deep lasso in between legs variation. Let me know if you guy have any future techniques questions and requests.

In this video I show a transition from the North/South Choke to the Paper Cutter. I also provide a few tips on how to finish this technique.
Often when I see this move performed it crushes the windpipe. While this can be a bi product of doing the move, it should be a strangle first (blood choke). Make sure to understand that the collar is one piece of cloth and the collar grip under the shoulder has the ability to tighten the choke as well.
Make sure your hips are turned towards your opponents and your only on one cheek. The pathway around the head is very important and adds a lot to the choke. Check it out and try it both ways during drilling and you will see there is a clearly better choke.
