Karo Parisyan unveils new submission: Armenian Necktie

Mixed martial artists are always looking for a new way to get an advantage over their opponent. One way to do that is to develop a new technique that will catch your opponent off guard — especially in the grappling department.

Enter Karo Parisyan.

In the past, we have seen unique submissions like the “Peruvian Necktie” — which starts off in the sprawl position with a Gable Grip and head arm control similar to what you would use in an anaconda choke — and now we have been introduced to the “Armenian Necktie.”

Parisyan unveiled the choke in a YouTube video for “TeamMeGrappling.”

The choke begins in side control.

While in side control, you begin controlling your opponent’s head from a seemingly harmless position. The opponent does not feel threatened and it allows you to continue working for the choke. The real danger comes when the aggressor locks in a baseball grip and steps over your head to apply the pressure.

Watch Parisyan showcase the new “Armenian Necktie” technique in the video below.
