Rear Naked Choke - "Body Lock or Hooks" Variation

"Body Lock or Hooks" Variation

The placement of the legs usually falls into two categories. The first is a body lock. The attacker places one of his legs across the stomach or lower chest of the victim. He then places his other leg over his own shin, creating a figure-four with his legs. This allows him to limit movement and stay close to the back of his victim. This technique was used by Anderson Silva against Dan Henderson and by Jim Miller against Melvin Guillard. The other common technique is known as using "hooks". In this version the attacker places his legs inside of the victim's legs. He then moves his legs out, placing his shin behind the victim's knees, essentially using his shins and feet as hooks to control the victim's legs.
