When someone is bigger and stronger than you - either go for the choke or an ankle. Going for an arm or leg can leave you vulnerable as a larger fighter can muscle their way through it.
Chokes are the great equalizer. Specialize in them. I know more gi chokes than I can remember and I like it that way. I'm not a MMA fighter - but I will choke your ass to sleep in the street with your shirt, pants, underwear - whatever you're wearing.
Do you know the choke "little evil"? Rafael showed me this about 3 months ago and I'm not sure how I rolled without it. Great choke from guard bottom
