    New tutorial on 3 different ways to set up the BJJ crucifix:

    https://howtheyplay.com/individual-sports/How-to-Set-Up-a-Crucifix-for-BJJ

    "The crucifix in BJJ is virtually check mate, but it's not a scoring position like mount or back. In other words, you can go through all the trouble of setting up the position, and if you don't finish your opponent, you won't necessarily score a single point all match long. However, the efficacy of the position more than makes up for this, as you can attack both arms and your partner's neck, while they are going to have a very difficult time defending any of your attacks. Here are three different ways to get into the crucifix position, starting with the most fundamental method, and gradually increasing in complexity."
