How to Do the Crucifix in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

How to Do the Crucifix in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Ritchie Yip (http://www.infighting.ca) shows you how to get to and apply the crucifix position in submission grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The crucifix is a position similar to the back tack. It is a fantastic control position and it offers two immediate attacks once you’ve secured the position. You have an armbar and you have a choke.
