"Oh, sure. The Klaus Glahn - that's the one Olympic silver medalist Klaus Glahn does."
Needless to say, I was very disappointed that I was not the first person to think of it.
Remembering my lesson on opposite side mat work from the previous week, I taught this on the left side at Gompers on Friday.
When Ronda was 11 or 12 years old, I taught her this same choke, and, just like the kids at Gompers, she had trouble remembering all of the steps. So, she made up a song for it. I used to make her sing it at clinics. Now that she is too mature for that, I sang it for the students yesterday.
Although everyone always laughs about this, you'd be amazed at the number of times I have heard even black belts I've taught murmuring under their breath ...
"You put your right hand in ...."
Here is a video. Enjoy.
You put your right hand in
You put your left hand up
You put your right leg up and
You roll them all about
You do the chokey-chokey and you choke 'em right out!
