Rear Naked Choke: Finish Stubborn Defenders

Few things are as frustrating as taking your opponent’s back and sinking in a rear naked choke, but no matter how hard you squeeze, your opponent is able to defend with his hands in pulling just enough to relieve the pressure.

The most recent series in our member section covers the RNC. This technique is perhaps the most effective set up and finishing technique for the RNC. It is so simple it’s nearly impossible to mess up. What’s best is that you actually use the RNC to set up an RNC finish just with the other arm.

For more details on setting up and handling counters to the rear naked choke, our Members have access to our entire RNC series.
