Hadaka-jime , or Rear Naked Choke, is a killer submission. This technique is executed without the use of the opponent's clothing. This categorizes it as a "no gi" choke. The submission can be done when the opponent is standing, sitting, or lying down. Hadaka-jime is a blood choke. In Version 1, the forearm presses against the carotid artery, cutting off blood to the head. In Version 2, the inside of the forearm and bicep push against the carotid. In these examples, the person executes the choke when the opponent is sitting.
But, at the same time, your experience in it will be coloured by who you are. When I started training in , and again when I started at a new gym late last year, my gender felt like a stark difference to everyone on the mat. Like many other women, I already had an approach to fit into existing dynamics and hierarchies: Try to blend in as much as possible. The first phase included observing and learning, both on the mat and the different social dynamics taking place. The second phase was about integrating into this new community and the third was about building a positive reputation in the gym. I mean, people come here to wrestle and throw punches at each other — which are activities that, generally speaking, appeal more to men. In jiu jitsu, we wear coloured belts that indicate our years of experience and technical skill.
