Grappling has been around for thousands of years. In that time, every way of possibly contorting an opponent will have been discovered.
As a result, I never say I invented anything. Instead, I prefer to think of rediscovering something that was lost or fallen out of fashion. This is exactly the case with the Sucuri.
The Sucuri is a submission / position I started using when my training partners got good at defending my attacks from the back. Unlike a lot submissions from the you don’t realised the danger until its too late and the damage is done.
The nice thing about the Sucuri is if your opponent does realise the danger, their way of defending will lead to either an arm bar or choke. Check out the video below to discover exactly what the Sucuri is and how you can use it to your advantage:
Warning: The Sucuri is a powerful submission when done correctly and puts a huge amount of pressure on your opponent. Please be careful when using it in practice as it can easily injury your training partner.
