One of the most common areas of choke training in mixed martial arts is chokes. These are used to apply pain to an opponent when they are caught in a hold or when they are being choked. There are many different types of chokes in mixed fighting, but all chokes have one thing in common: they force a fighter to break loose of their balance or fall onto their back. This is extremely dangerous and can lead to the opponent controlling or pinning down the person being held down. If you’re going to learn how to use chokes in mixed fighting, then you should be aware of all of the different types and how they work.
Use Chokes in Mixed Fighting
One of the most traditional chokes is the rear naked choke, also known as the rear triangle. This choke is used to catch your opponent’s arm, and force them to lie flat on their back, with their face facing up. The choke itself is relatively simple, all you need is a strip of cloth behind your opponent’s back, wrap the arm around it and tie a slip knot. There are many variations of the rear naked choke, some more effective than others, and depending on your skills, some may be easier to use than others. There are also specific types of chokes that you can use while you are fighting, like the front swallow, or the rear triangle, which are used for specific things in certain situations.
There are many other chokes available to a mixed martial artist, and you will likely have to experiment until you find the ones that work best for you. A good place to look is YouTube, as there are a lot of videos about various chokes. As you get more skilled at competing, you will probably find other chokes that you can use, or even just learn for fun. Good luck!
