The importance of chaining submissions can’t be overstated enough.  When you first begin training and compete against lower ranking belts, its easier to catch someone in a single attempt submission, but as you go against higher ranking belts this kind of attack becomes next to impossible.

I use what I call the  “Theory of 3’s” approach when it comes to submissions. This is where I use the first two submission attacks to set up the third one as the final blow so to speak.  I use this concept for all areas of jiu jitsu.

Here is the very basic one from the guard demonstrated by Paulo Guilobel. This is one of my favorites and the one I drill the most. This is some excellent instruction by Guilobel.
