What can I learn from Alex?
Out of the many specialties Alex has, his chokes and other submissions that revolve around chokes are some of his most effective. If you go on his Instagram, you will quickly notice that even a lot of his students win their matches with a variety of chokeholds. So what's the secret to their success? You've probably experienced the frustration of your opponents capitalizing on chokes that you spent a lot of time and effort trying to set up.

To help any jiu jitsu practitioner with similar concerns, Alex brought his broad knowledge to JJX with his course, “Game of Chokes.” His scientific approach will take you through various no-gi chokes from common positions and situations.
