Back in the day, when nobody really understood Jiu Jitsu, it was usually enough to take an opponent's back and slap on a rear-naked choke. Now that the game has evolved, players have become very good at defending this position and it can be extremely frustrating for the attacker, especially if he only has a repertoire of basic attacks.
In this sequence of videos, 3rd-degree Roger Gracie Jiu-Jitsu black belt demonstrates the 'Trojan Horse' method of attacking the neck from back-mount. This is very effective because it is totally unexpected, and ensures that even the most defensive player's neck is always vulnerable.
