    The cross choke (often abbreviated simply as "X choke") is clearly a staple in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and is often one of the first moves people learn as beginners. While it does take a long time to become extremely effective against advanced folks, white belts tend to have quick positive results with the X choke against other beginners almost immediately. It's really important to have an effective, simple defense against this choke. Here, we'll take a look at two options, one very simple and fundamental, and one more advanced.
