BJJ Moves to Execute
March 7, 2014
Imagine if you can pull off these very very difficult BJJ moves on a tournament. Wouldn’t it be awesome? But practicality speaking, you rarely see these moves executed in BJJ tourneys but if you will, see fireworks shoot up to the sky.
Although I refuse to say that these are impossible moves, these are but moves that gives ends matches in a spectacular fashion

Popularized by Nick Pace in The Ultimate Fighter, the pace choke is a blood choke / triangle hybrid. It utilizes the leg to secure the position and the forearm to cut the blood flow to the brain.
When the Korean Zombie executed this move, the world was silenced for about a second. This move is what others call as the spine twister. Is it legal? Yes and no. Some leagues allow it. Some do not.
Utilizing your shin to choke on your opponent is not that easy. Seriously. I rarely see this in BJJ tourneys. Personally I think executing this from the mount is more practical than the usual where you do it right from the guard. No reason to risk the position for this move. Rather go for an armbar or a triangle set up.
The Flying Omaplata
If executing an Omaplata is tough enough, try doing it in mid-air. Well anything executed in mid air can be tough to pull off. I’ve never seen anyone win by using this move. But then again, it’s just cool to look at.
