    Attacking turtle can be pretty personal because it depends on your end goal and your goals will vary depending on where your game is strongest. BUT, I personally love when people turtle because I go straight to the seat belt grip/Garcia roll. Marcelo Garcia's back taking is unbelievable and he starts everything from the seat belt grip. As soon as anyone starts to turtle throw the seat belt on without hooks and pressure the back of the head so you can roll into it and get your hooks. I'll post a video if you have no idea what I'm talking about.

    If he posts out with his hand it also opens up the clock choke.

    Passing guard on the knees is completely void. It does not work anymore. Move to ATL and train with world champions you won't see anyone passing the guard without standing up first!

    Thank you, that makes a lost of sense. I knew there had to be a better option than trying to squeeze my giant feet in for hooks when they really tighten up the elbows.

    Whiteshark: I used the 2nd technique he showed on that video tonight on a blue belt, it felt really natural. Going to try out the one you are talking about soon.


    Clock choke? I've only been doing gi for a month, is this a good gi choke to learn?

    Clock choke is a great basic choke to learn but with so little time in the gi I'd ask your coach to show you. It isn't one I'd recommend youtubing due to precise hand placement.

    It is a tricky choke to get down but brutal when you get it locked on properly. Even if you don't train it is good to know it is there if your opponent bases out and something you can incorporate later on when you are more advanced. Also, good to know to prevent it happening to you as it is a very common attack.

    Sweet i'll ask my coach about it next week along with the bow and arrow choke.

    I'm having another problem now, this blue belt really doesn't look good with my blue gi.

    I don't have the balls to pull that off gregaquaman, I already feel like I've got a big target on my back as it is.

    Theres way too much to learn in this sport, I'm still hitting technique overload from classes. I think I'll have to write down a list of basics and start drilling them two at a time for the next year.

    That is an excellent idea. You can never drill the basics too much.
    Shut the hell up and train.
