When you get to the rear body lock you have a number of options. You can try to take your opponent down, you can try to jump to their back, or you can try something like the Rafa Hook.
The Rafa Hook is named after Rafael Mendes who developed it during one of his ADCC training camps. It’s a great way to transition from the body lock to the back or knock your opponent down.
Episode 46 of 2 Minute Jiu Jitsu covers the set up for the Rafa Hook from the body lock and how to attack the back from there.
