What are some of the most common submissions in BJJ

In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), there are many submission moves that practitioners can use to submit their opponents. Some of the most common submissions include:

Chokes - Chokes involve cutting off the blood flow or air supply to the opponent's brain, causing them to pass out. Examples include the rear naked choke, the triangle choke, and the guillotine choke.

Armlocks - Armlocks involve hyper-extending the elbow joint, causing pain and forcing the opponent to tap out. Examples include the Americana, the Kimura, and the omoplata.

Leg locks - Leg locks involve attacking the knee or ankle joints, causing pain and forcing the opponent to tap out. Examples include the heel hook, the kneebar, and the toe hold.

Neck cranks - Neck cranks involve applying pressure to the cervical spine, causing pain and forcing the opponent to tap out. Examples include the can opener and the twister.

Compression locks - Compression locks involve applying pressure to the opponent's muscles or joints, causing pain and forcing the opponent to tap out. Examples include the gogoplata and the shoulder lock.

Other - There are other types of submissions that do not fit into the above categories, such as the Ezequiel choke.

It's worth noting that not all submissions are legal in all competitions, and safety is always a primary concern.
