The Von Flue Choke

On January 16th, 2006, Jason Von Flue shocked the world with an “Invisible” Choke! Not only did his opponent not see it coming, NO ONE SAW IT HAPPEN!

This “invisible choke”—now called the Von Flue choke—is an effective and stealthy counterattack for the Guillotine choke. The basic technique allows us to defend the Guillotine, pass the guard, and apply this highly specialized version of the Head and Arm Choke. James Clingerman is the first to refine the details of the choke and integrate it into a unique system of attacks.
