10 MMA Submissions That Are Almost Impossible To Escape From

Once you're in... there ain't no getting out!

Grappling isn't for the faint hearted, and finding yourself fully locked in a choke or variation of bar isn't what many would class as a fun day at the office. So, truly great grapplers will do whatever they can to ensure that they don't end up in a situation where they have no choice but to tap or go to sleep.

That's definitely easier said than done, however.

Some moves and techniques - if executed correctly - can be pretty near impossible to break free from and if a fighter finds themselves fully wrapped up in these specific submissions in the cage, more often than not their night will be over.

It doesn't matter whether it's your leg, arm, neck or face, there's always a manoeuvre out there that - when effectively pulled off - will force said body part into an unbearable position which is near inescapable.

These ten brutal Shoot Wrestling submissions (from a seated position) all come highly recommended by Team Phoenix's own Matthew Teasdale in Newcastle and if you honestly doubt whether they're genuinely almost impossible to escape from... you're more than welcome to ask him for a demonstration.
