The Anaconda Choke

The anaconda choke is a submission hold that can render an opponent forces the opponent to tap or renders them unconscious by restricting blood flow to the brain. This occurs when the choke constricts the carotid arteries in the neck. For the technique to be considered an anaconda choke, the fighters must be facedown in the north-south position and the opponent’s arm must be trapped and pressing into his own neck. Trapping the arm secures the opponent’s and constricts blood flow on one side of his neck, while the aggressor uses his arm to constrict the blood flow to the other side of the opponent’s neck.www.thefightlab.org
