Rear Naked Choke (RNC) Setups - Frank Shamrock

Frank Shamrock shows us a few good ways to force, bait, and annoy your way into sinking a solid Rear Naked Choke.

Frank Shamrock teaches Pro-Star MMA Choke Set Ups

Here's the gist of it:
  • Hook his nose
  • Hook under his eyebrows
  • Crossface
  • Mandible Crush
  • Seesaw with punches
  • Combination of these things to make your opponent's life miserable.
God damn Frank Shamrock is a goofball. Good at communicating his thoughts, but still a goofball.

For self defense purposes, hooking INTO the eye socket and nose are viable options as well, but I wouldn't recommend trying it during sparring, unless you want to make people very upset at you.

Oh, and another good way when you're attempting a RNC in MMA sparring, cover his mouth and nose with your glove-covered hand, and when he tries to move his head to avoid it, use that motion to sink the choke in.
