I watched the Marcelo Garcia highlights video on Georgette’s Jiu-Jitsu World. Marcelo makes it look so effortless getting to the back and most of all putting in that Rear Naked Choke. But I’ve come to understand from experience that The devil is in the details. I learned this when I tried to master the Triangle. I found there were many unseen facets to the technique. It took me a while to really get good at it. I had to watch video of may different people doing it. I read books telling the exact way. But most of all I had to try it out and do reps of it. At this point I think I have a good mastery of it.
My thoughts have turned to getting the back and the rear naked choke. I feel that same feeling I did when I first started learning the triangle choke. I know the fundamentals but I don’t seem to be able to get it to work in a roll. Marcelo inspired me to make it my next choke-of-choice. Roy Dean has set me on the path to master it. So who is really good and showing the nuances of getting to the back?
Jiu-Jitsu is Life and Life is Jiu-Jitsu
