We are the first ones to admit, gi techniques and submissions are new to us. We were never big fans of it. Primarily because everytime we have tried to roll with a gi we have been tied up like a pretzel and choked out. However we are slowly learning some of the nuances between gi and no gi grappling. Once you get used to the gi it opens up a world of new submissions. This week we are bringing you the Asylum Choke as demonstrated by Piet "Tico" Wilhelm. A creative way to utilize the gi from the bottom position. Enjoy the new technique and let us know if it worked for you.
