How To Use The Rear Naked Choke

Gracie Jiu Jitsu Rear Naked Choke in Action

Watch as the security officer puts a beautiful Rear Naked Choke on the man and then puts his hooks in.  This truly is the Gentle Art of Jiu Jitsu put into action.  In the end neither the man or the officer are hurt.  The man has some memory loss which is a symptom of being unconscious.  That will soon clear up and there will be no ill effects.

If more situations could be handled like this what would we need weapons for?  I think the poster of this video labeled it with “brutality” so they could have a flashy headline.  This is on the complete opposite spectrum from brutality.  I’ve talked to people from other countries where they have real police brutality.  It would make them laugh to see this video and think that any one thought it was “brutality”.  The security officer even says to the man that he was warned away 3 times from the property and he just kept coming back.  I think this was handled very well.

Thank you Helio Gracie, and all of those who came after you, that have worked to bring the gentle art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to the USA.  Jiu Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu Jitsu.
