The Cross Choke is a submission that can be set up from all sorts of positions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, including the Knee Cut Pass. And it’s actually really simple to do; so, if you don’t know how to set it up, it’s about time you learn.
This is a very simple and effective choke using the collar with the grip thumb out just behind the neck and the same leg as the arm. Make sure to have your opponent sideways for maximum efficiency.
