Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A triangle choke is a form of ...

    • A.

      A strangulation choke

    • B.

      A blood choke

    • C.

      An anaconda choke

    • D.

      A darce choke

    Correct Answer
    B. A blood choke
    Explanation
    A triangle choke is a type of submission hold used in martial arts, particularly Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It involves trapping an opponent's head and arm between the legs in a triangular position, putting pressure on the carotid arteries and restricting blood flow to the brain. This leads to unconsciousness if not released. Therefore, a triangle choke is considered a blood choke, as it cuts off the blood supply to the brain rather than obstructing the airway like a strangulation choke would. It is different from anaconda choke and darce choke, which are variations of front headlock submissions.

    When you chicken wing your opponents arm and provide torque to his/her shoulder with your arms, that move is called...

    • A.

      Key lock

    • B.

      Omoplata

    • C.

      Kimura

    • D.

      Americana

    Correct Answer
    C. Kimura
    Explanation
    The correct answer is kimura because when you chicken wing your opponent's arm and apply torque to their shoulder, it is a submission move commonly known as the kimura. This move involves gripping the opponent's wrist, rotating their arm, and applying pressure on the shoulder joint, which can cause immense pain and potentially force them to tap out.

    What are the three pillars of jiu jitsu?

    • A.

      Triangle, kneebar, kimura

    • B.

      Armbar, americana, omoplata

    • C.

      Armbar, triangle, omoplata

    • D.

      Omoplata, gogoplata, monoplata

    Correct Answer
    C. Armbar, triangle, omoplata
    Explanation
    The three pillars of jiu jitsu are the armbar, triangle, and omoplata. These are fundamental techniques that are commonly used in jiu jitsu. The armbar involves hyperextending the opponent's arm, the triangle involves trapping the opponent's head and arm between the practitioner's legs, and the omoplata involves controlling the opponent's shoulder joint. These techniques are essential for both offense and defense in jiu jitsu and are foundational to the practice of the martial art.

    Which posistion can you not get a kneebar from?

    • A.

      Half guard top

    • B.

      Half guard bottom

    • C.

      Bottom mount

    • D.

      Bottom guard

    Correct Answer
    C. Bottom mount
    Explanation
    In the bottom mount position, the person on top has full control over the person on the bottom. This control allows them to prevent the person on the bottom from being able to secure a kneebar submission. A kneebar requires the person applying the submission to control their opponent's leg and apply pressure on the knee joint, which is not possible from the bottom mount position. Therefore, it is not possible to get a kneebar from the bottom mount position.

    What is not a shoulder lock?

    • A.

      Armbar

    • B.

      Americana

    • C.

      Kimura

    • D.

      Omoplata

    Correct Answer
    A. Armbar
    Explanation
    The armbar is not a shoulder lock because it primarily targets the elbow joint rather than the shoulder. In an armbar, the attacker applies pressure on the opponent's extended arm by hyperextending or hyperrotating the elbow joint, causing pain or potential injury. In contrast, shoulder locks like the Americana, Kimura, and Omoplata target the shoulder joint by applying pressure or leverage to immobilize or manipulate the shoulder, resulting in pain or submission.

    A guillotine choke is a blood choke.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A guillotine choke is not a blood choke. It is a type of chokehold that primarily targets the trachea, cutting off the air supply rather than the blood flow. While it can cause some restriction of blood flow, it is not primarily a blood choke.

    A rear naked choke is a blood choke.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A rear naked choke is not a blood choke. It is a type of chokehold that primarily targets the neck and compresses the airway, restricting the flow of air and causing the person to lose consciousness. Blood chokes, on the other hand, target the carotid arteries and restrict the flow of blood to the brain, leading to unconsciousness.

    a kneebar puts torque on your ankle.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A kneebar does not put torque on your ankle. A kneebar is a submission technique in martial arts that involves applying pressure to the knee joint by using the legs and hips. It targets the ligaments and tendons around the knee, not the ankle. Therefore, the statement is false.

    A heel hook puts torque on your knee.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A heel hook is a submission technique commonly used in grappling sports, such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It involves applying pressure and torque on the opponent's knee joint by hooking the heel and twisting it inwards. This puts significant stress on the knee, potentially causing injury or damage to the ligaments and structures surrounding the joint. Therefore, the statement that a heel hook puts torque on your knee is true.

    A. True
    Explanation
    A gogoplata is a type of submission move in martial arts, specifically Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It involves using one's own leg to apply pressure to an opponent's throat, causing them to submit or lose consciousness. Therefore, it can be classified as a chokehold.

    An omoplata is a choke.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Explanation
    The statement "an omoplata is a choke" is incorrect. An omoplata is actually a submission technique commonly used in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It involves trapping and manipulating the opponent's arm using one's legs to apply pressure on the shoulder joint. While it can be a painful and effective technique, it is not a chokehold.
