The Ezekiel choke fits perfectly into my game, but despite learning it over 15 years ago, I’ve NEVER been able to use it effectively.
Whenever I used to attempt the traditional Ezekiel, my fingers would just end up getting mangled against my partner’s defences instead in an effective choking position.
However, a short while ago, I discovered a different way to Ezekiel.
Dare I say it, a better way to Ezekiel (insert shocked face)
Only joking… but the first time I used it, I hit this version of the Ezekiel maybe fifteen times in a row against one of my brown belts.
I’m unsure if this is something I can up with myself or if I learned it many moons ago and forgot about it.
Either way, it works like gangbusters!
The beautiful thing about this version of the Ezekiel choke is the pressure is directly against the carotid arteries, so it comes on shockingly fast.
