Learn a lapel choke from closed guard with upcoming talent Nathiely de Jesus

A name you should be paying attention in the competition circuit is Nathiely de Jesus. The newest talent from the Cicero Costha camp has been making the headlines. This past weekend, she won the 90kg division at the Grand Slam LA with three submissions in three matches.

In this video shot a while back, when she was still a brown belt, she teaches a lapel choke starting on the closed guard. She teaches in Portuguese: “In the closed guard, break the grip on your pants and bring the opponent’s arm to the side. Open the guard and switch your hips, then close the guard again. Capture the lapel, isolate his arm and close the triangle. Pull on the lapel to squeeze the neck and get the tap.
