How to do an Anaconda choke

Here’s one of my favourite chokes, the Anaconda. It’s a fantastic way to choke your opponent unconcious. Phil Davis used it very well in the UFC.

I like it because I often find myself in the right position to get it and it’s not too complicated. You just need to get your grips right and learn how to Gator roll. It’s worked for me again and again. The great thing is that it works with your opponents one arm in so you don’t even need to fight to isolate his neck.

Here are 2 videos.

The first video was uploaded by Loic Le Jeune and shows how Phil Davis used the Anaconda choke to submit Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 179.

The second video is a Howcast instructional video of how to actually do the Anaconda choke.

Check out this video by Brian Peterson of about how to do a Peruvian necktie. Once you’ve sprawled after your opponent shoots for a takedown, you can really make him pay with this submission. This technique took me an abnormal amount of time to understand but it’s actually not complicated once you get it. The instruction in this video is really high quality. You get to see how to do the submission and also how Brian’s used it in competition which is really cool. Check it out.
