I had that same philosophy in my misspent youth but I would NEVER recommend using chokes at all in anger. This vid will be my example from now on. Notice that the loser taps out with a hammerfist rather than an open palm. The winner very rightly lets go because this is a bright line between "just screwing around" and aggravated assault but the loser immediately gets up and attempts to re engage leading to a slow chase around the car
This didn't look like a "friendly" fight to me especially the end. If you're at a TD or just screwing around with a buddy you can end the fight at the tap and that should do it. It's just young male dick waving gone full retard but hocking a lung cookie on your barely vanquished opponent sends a mixed message about the end of hostilities.
Can we even call that a choke ? It looked more like The Iron Shiek's Camel Clutch from the ol' timey WWF. Whatever works I guess.
This is why ending a street fight with a choke has a very small % of success. Choke too little and your opponent just gets back up at pretty much full capability and the fight continues. Choke too much and now you have truly crossed into t3h d34dly. I can't even recall any "Felony Fights" that end with a choke.
For the life of me I cannot recall a single fist fight I ever got into being caused by something I would be comfortable explaining to a jury that justified killing a guy for. Ending with a choke outside a controlled environment is a big lose/lose AFAIK.
"It's better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6" might look cool on a T shirt but will sound much worse spoken aloud in a court room.
