A 7th-degree coral-belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Jean Jacques Machado was one of the big names of the 80s and 90s, winning many an important tourney, including the ADCC. He was victorious in 1999 and then a runner-up the following two years. But here's the kicker: Jean Jacques was born with amniotic band syndrome, so he did all that without having fingers on his left hand. In this video, Machado teaches a lapel choke from the half-guard.
