    What was the first submission you were ever taught?

    If you had to teach somebody, totally new, a first submission, which would it be and why?

    The first submission I was ever shown was the Guillotine Choke by this JKD instructor my high-school P.E. teacher brought to class, he was super gung-ho, and he challenged me to "Karate" him, he kicked my ass! (this was in'97).

    In my 1st Gi-BJJ class, I was taught the Kimura from the Guard. But the 1st submission I applied was the Gi choke from the guard.

    I love that one! Do you use thumb in grip or fingers in grip?

    I had my thumb out. I'm not really sure which grip is that :) Though that is the only choke I know. That and the Gi-choke from the mount. My RNC sucks, something wrong with my technique. I've only been doing BJJ for a month. :D

    IMO, if your thumb is out you have a fingers-in grip. I like to stick my fingers deep into the collar, till I feel the label of his gi or the center seam of his stitching; from there I try to do the same on the other side and choke or else grab the ridge of his gi near the shoulder and choke like that.

    RNC is a great choke, especially with a gi on! You have so many options from there. I like getting a grip low down on the collar, so the guy isn't feeling threatened. Then I work it up higher later, and brace his head on the opposite side from my grip with my free arm's elbow. We call that Ryote-jime here in the Yukon. Do y'all have a name for it down south?

    First ever? Headlock (shoolyard style, taught myself).

    First in proper training? Probably keylock or RNC (was taught in Judo class.)

    First submission? My brother taught me the stranger when i was 6..

    When someone you dont know comes up to grab the nuts and twist... or just kick them in same spot. "the stranger kick"

    First submission from training was in judo - arm triangle with opponent in your guard.
