Turtle Attacks

Turtle Attacks – Grappling Techniques

This page provides details on how to do a variety of Turtle Attacks (or how to attack an opponent who is in the turtle guard/position). While there are huge variety of attacks that can be used against the turtle guard, we have included some basic turtle choke videos below.

These techniques are used in martial arts systems such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts. When learning this technique, martial arts students should also study Turtle Escapes (or how to escape an attacker when you are in the turtle guard/position).

All grappling techniques are potentially dangerous and should only be practiced under the supervision of a trained martial arts instructor. For more grappling and submission techniques, please visit our main Submissions & Grappling Techniques section.
