Beginning the technique, start from the New York position of the rubber guard. Next, push the side of your opponent’s neck with your forearm. After this, put your right hand on your shin, and then bring your left leg down under your opponent’s chin. Paying close attention, make sure that your foot is tight around your opponent’s neck.

Now to complete the technique, put both hands behind your opponent’s head and squeeze down against your foot. This completes the Gogoplate from rubber guard.
