Joint locks are a weak form of submission. They can be difficult against strong opponents and won't stop a maniac that doesn't care about a broken limb. That is why the rear naked choke is the king of submissions.

rear naked choke

Size, speed, and strength all fade when you sink a tight rear naked choke on your opponent. Some of the best fighters and grapplers of our time made their way to the podium with the rear naked choke, such as Roger Gracie, Marcelo Garcia, and BJ Penn.

If you study the greats in our sport (and you should if you aren't already), then the back mount is a must know position. But more than that, it should be one of your best weapons. For that reason, back attacks are a big part of our MMA curriculum on

One of my fighters at the Freestyle Fighting Academy is a back attack machine. But we almost lost him to a terrible motorcycle accident that had left him nearly died. His comeback story is nothing short of amazing. His name is Jason "the Specimen" Soares.

Who is Jason Soares?

Jason with his ill fated bike

Jason "The Specimen" Soares was born and raised in Key Largo, FL. As a young man, he was a super athlete - lettering in wrestling, football, and track and field. Early on, he knew he wanted to train MMA and be in the UFC, but he also had ambitions of being a stockbroker. Not two things you would normally expect to go together. 🙂

Jason began going to school at Florida International University (FIU), and as it happens, that is across the street from the Freestyle Fighting Academy (FFA). This wasn't a coincidence - Jason had a scholarship to go to any state school and he chose FIU to be close to FFA to train with my brother and I. It didn't take long to see that he was a phenom, and began a quick rise to blue belt, crushing his opponents in local grappling tournaments.

At this point, he was a promising talent. My brother and I had high hopes for his future, as he was starting to become serious about being a full time martial artist. But as fate would have it, those plans would have to be shelved.

In 2010, he was driving down the highway in his motorcycle and a car smashed into Jason - sending him flying in the air and tumbling to the concrete. Jason was quick to jump to his feet and say he was okay, only to collapse unconscious shortly after.

Jason after surgery

He was airlifted to the nearest hospital where they had to do exploratory surgery. He was suffering from internal bleeding, broken ribs, a spiral fracture of the tibia, torn achilles tendon, and probably a few other things I am missing.

Needless to say, all of his friend and family were distraught. He was fortunate to survive the accident, but the doctors made it very clear that he would never be able to do sports again, and that even learning how to walk again could take years.

As the doctor dropped the hammer, all in attendance were sad and crying - except Jason. While he couldn't talk as he was on a respirator, he had a notepad that he wrote a message on:

"Get me a fight in 3 months coach. I will be ready."

At the time, this only made everyone sadder. It was believed that he was not accepting the reality of his situation. My brother Marcos was more involved with Jason at the time, and did not want to see this young man get any more hurt than he already was. As he dismissed the idea that Jason could ever do MMA again, my brother wanted to mentor him in business to keep him involved in the academy and help him move forward professionally.

Jason was confined to a wheel chair for the first few months after his release from the hospital. That did not stop him from coming to FFA. He would come to the gym, watch classes, and take notes. It was not long after that he was given crutches, and his unrelenting passion for MMA started to show it's true colors.

Jason after getting out of the hospital

Once he was on crutches, Jason would make his way to the heavy bags and start punching them. This was a big no-no. The last thing we wanted was Jason to fall over and really hurt himself. But, he was a stubborn bastard, lol, so we compromised by letting him do light weights under supervision.

After a few shorts months, he was now off crutches and able to move unassisted - defying all expectations. This was an unprecedented recovery!

Still, my brother was very cautious and told all instructors that under no circumstances was he to do live sparring of any kind. He was only to do technique. Jason starting training in my classes then, and everyone was happy to see him back on the mats. But it was somewhat nerve wrecking because Jason was always testing limits. And after everything he went through, we were all scared what could happen if he went too far.

One day, Jason was in my class and we were about to start rolling. Jason approached me and said that he was going to roll today. I told him that he couldn't, as we were told not to until hearing otherwise from his doctor. He reassured me that he was okay, and that my brother had given him permission to start rolling but no sparring.

I was surprised by my brothers change of heart, and allowed him to roll. It was only midway through the roll my brother came into the class and started chewing my head off. I was confused, until my brother made it obvious that Jason had lied to me.

But his lie worked out for him. He was allowed to roll live from then on out. Not long after that he wanted to get back into competition and do a grappling tournament. As I said, he is pushing his limits, and perhaps ours too. After months of denying him, we relented and allowed him to compete a year after his accident.

He didn't miss a step and dominated local competition, which in south Florida is fierce. After proving he was back in top frame, he qualified to compete in the 2011 FILA Grappling World Championships in Serbia for Team USA. En route to the finals, he scored this win:

He went on to win the FILA World Championships with my brother Marcos coaching him to victory, claiming the first world title for FFA.

From then on, he just kept pushing. And slowly but surely, he made his way through each obstacle into getting back to his dream of fighting MMA.

Just 2 years after his near fatal accident, he made his pro MMA debut in Mexico. He won that fight by rear naked choke.  Over 4 years he accumulated a perfect 10-0 record with 8 submissions - 6 of them by rear naked choke. In 2016, he captured his first title as the 145lb Fight Time Champion.

Even if you don't get this course, I want you to leave this page learning something more important than a submission, or even martial arts. Jason's comeback from what could have been his death bed was nothing short of amazing. But he isn't magical or some freak of nature - he is human like anyone else.

The difference is his mindset. He held strong to his belief that he would make a full recovery and become the best fighter he can be - despite everyone telling him otherwise. The mind of a champion can be an unstoppable force that can move mountains. Cultivate that mindset and nothing can stand in your way.

What Jason Can Teach You

As I mentioned at the beginning, Jason is a back attacking machine. Particularly he focuses on the king of chokes, the Rear Naked Choke. When I asked what drew him to focusing on attacking the back and going for the choke, he made a very keen observation I will share with you.

In wrestling, it is known that people will pin themselves when getting worked over. It isn't a conscious decision though. Deep down, this person wants out and their body will make them lose. You watch enough wrestling matches and you will see people suddenly stop bridging for no good reason and get pinned.

MMA is no different. When someone is getting beat down, they want a way out. But, they don't want to look weak either. 

  • What is the best position to lose from where it doesn't look weak to give up in? A submission hold of course!
  • And what position makes it easy for your opponent to go for the submissions without taking a big risk of losing their position? The Back Mount.
  • Finally, what submission is easy to do from the back mount? The Rear Naked Choke!
  • Bonus round: what submission doesn't care how flexible or tough you are? The Rear Naked Choke.

For these reasons, Jason made the back his go-to position and the rear naked choke his go-to submission. If you watch enough MMA fights, you too will see people give up their back and open up their neck to let themselves get choked.

This is the process of breaking a fighter. Jason has done it time and time again to his opponents. His key strength is his indomitable will, and he uses that conviction to tear down his opponent until they break and give in. He can teach you how to apply constant pressure with your back attacks until your opponent is forced to break and tap out.

Why Learn The Back Attack Series?

I know this isn't a back attack, but it's a cool picture and I just wanted to show he can do things other than rear naked chokes. But, he still went on to rear naked choke this guy. 🙂

  • Controlling the back is the most dominant position in MMA and BJJ
  • Neutralize your opponent's speed and strength
  • No one can escape the power of a full blast rear naked choke
  • Develop amazing back retention skills so no one sneaks out
  • Pick up slick ways of taking the back from all of your favorite positions

While everyone "learns" the back mount and Rear Naked Choke within the first few training sessions, there are so many little details, tricks, and tactics that even a well seasoned black belt will not know half of what is on this course. Heck, I have worked with black belt world champions that do not know the stuff Jason knows!

How did he develop this series? The same way all my guys do - specialization. We highly encourage our athletes to fine tune certain parts of the game that come naturally to them. This allows them to really build powerful sequences and become fighting machines. And by picking up this course, you will get a short cut to the front of the line with your back attacking skills!

Does the Back Attack Series Work in MMA?

Definitely not where you want Jason Soares to get on you. 🙂

Do politicians lie, cheat, and steal? You can bet your taxes on it! LOL!

Attacking from the back mount is fundamental to all MMA. The fact is that when you are being dominated on the ground and on your back, there is going to come a point where your opponent will unload a barrage of punches at your face. Human instinct and self preservation will have you turn away - buying you a few short seconds before a well placed choke sinks in.

Don't believe me? I have the numbers to prove it:

The Rear Naked Choke is the most popular submission in the UFC. So if it working for the top pros in the sport, don't you think you owe it to yourself to get good at it too?

If you have been following me and my techniques, you will have noticed that I do not teach fancy moves. I don't teach moves that only work if you are flexible, or have a certain body type. I show techniques that work for EVERYONE.

The Back Attack Series fits that prerequisite perfectly. It is the original submission hold. And as Grand Master Helio Gracie said:

"For the choke, there are no tough guys."

Especially if you are practicing martial arts for self defense, knowing the rear naked choke and the back attack series is a MUST. Some street thug might not tap, but he will go to sleep.

TL;DR - Watching this course will level up your back attacks and rear naked choke skills. Get it now! 🙂
