TECHNIQUE

Stuart Cooper, BJJ Black Belt, coach and renowned film maker/documentarian has here filmed himself for the Warrior Collective giving a tutorial on how to execute a sneaky shoulder choke from top side control that is the trademark of 5x world champion Braulio Estima!

When you are in top side control, cup their head with your hand and start “crossfacing” with your shoulder. Their head should be pointed away from your shoulder. Then drive your shoulder across their neck and jaw.
If done properly it can even be a powerful choke, a bit like the “Von Flue Choke”.
In order to make the technique more effective, turn your body and balance all your weight on their face/neck.

The choke is similar to the infamous ‘Shoulder of Justice’
