I've used that same choke in newaza for years. It was one of the first chokes I ever learned as a teenager. I prefer the gator roll though because it's sneakier and works on more advanced players more consistently.Quote:

The reason I was asking him about other ways to set it up is because I remember a guy at my club doing it to me years ago. It was the exact same choke, but I wasn't going for his leg. He moved me into position for the choke with some sort of kuzushi but I can't remember how. I seem to remember him coming in sideways though, so I'm wondering if he feinted an uchimata or something.
