Do you struggle with getting choke in BJJ? Does it freak you out a little or make you panic?
Recently I received a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu related question from Aline who said she was struggling with getting chokes during her training.
In spite of training hard doing Brazilian Jiujitsu, MMA and other combat sports. She still struggles when she get’s choked. In particular she says the triangle choke freaks her out. She even says that sometimes she will cry because of the feelings that happen.
I relate to her. Because in the beginning when I was a BJJ White Belt I used to freak out and hyperventilate when I would be stuck in Mount. To the point that during training I would just tap out. Later on I found myself struggling with the same choke as Aline in BJJ. The triangle choke.
It became my kryptonite and when someone applied the choke in a BJJ competition or rolling. I would freeze up and just give up mentally.
In this video I discuss the problem our friend is having and I also go into detail with how I overcame the issues. The biggest piece of advice in the video is simply desensitize yourself by going into these positions more and more.
If you’re having a similar issue as this, then I hope the video and short Chewy Ramble is helpful.
