Rear Naked Choke Escape from Standing

In this Jiu Jitsu Video we outline the Rear Naked (Mata Leon) escape from a standing position. I often call this the 3 Ts (trap, turn, and throw). The critical part of this escape is protecting your airway by grabbing my opponents arm, shrugging the shoulders and tucking my chin into the crook of his elbow.

Dont forget to trap the leg which is a fundamental error often made when learning this Jiu Jitsu Technique.
