Buchard Choke by Buchard

Amandine does this unusual choke quite effectively.

Some people refer to the Buchard Choke as a kind of modified Gerbi Choke. There are some similarities in the placement of the legs but the grip involved is totally different.

Amandine learned this technique from her coach, World and Olympic Champion Severine Vendenhende.

Several of the French female players also like to use this technique, notably Shirine Boukli at -48kg and Clarisse Agbegnenou at -63kg.

Aleksandar Kukolj demonstrates this choke in a video tutorial from his upcoming instructional video to be released by Judo Fanatics.
