    There are lots of different neck cranks, the most popular being the can opener

    This one is done through the guard by putting your elbows into their sholders and pulling their head towords you, this is easy enough to escape though by opening your guard and moving your hips.

    Basically the most simple way of defining a neck crank is when you crank the neck in a direction is isn't ment to go.

    Funny how things comes around :wink:

    I'll try to add some value saying that this picture's from an EVT event in Stockholm.

    Another kind of neck crank is shown at http://www.groundfight.com/tec5.JPG

    Including setups too many to count.

    I should say mind (as i'm guessing you're new to this) don't be going and diving in on your training partners with these full pelt. they're very dangerous so I always try to make sure i go very slow to give the guy plenty of time to tap as soon as he feels it.

    Here's a couple more variations

    Yeah, I'm still new it comes to grappling. I really a boxer but I just started up on BJJ. I'm really get in to it and everytime I hear the guys at the gym talk about different subs they use it always makes me wonder what it looks like or how its done. Thanks for the help bro

    Neck cranks are great to do on somebody you hate or don't care if you severly injure for months maybe forever, but for your stable-mates I do not, personally, feel they are appropriate.
    Focus on chokes instead, they are much safer and IMO more effective.
    No oxygen to brain= night-night
    Pain to neck= just pain
    my moto: no brain=no pain! Fight till I drop!

    Thought that was just a choke attempt, not a crank?
     
  13. It was a smother/crank attempt.

    It's funny when you realize someone was typing in all caps as if it would be taken more seriously.

    Right, this is an asshole move that most wrestlers use. I think its illegal and can really hurt someone. If I feel this coming, there's an immediate poke to the eye coming.
