How to do an Ezekiel choke from the mount

Seriously. This video is old school and cool. Alberto Crane, one of the original American BJJ black belts shows us just how to put your opponent to sleep nice and easy from the mounted position in this video. It’s an old technique and one of the first BJJ submissions that I ever saw, back when Royce Gracie did it way back in UFC 1 and it still works like a charm for me.

What I love about the Ezekiel choke is that even in the unlikely event that he flips you, you can still get the choke, even off your back but the great thing is that you barely risk giving up position when you go for this choke. Check out the video here:
