So many variations on a classic . . .
I've done that too but the one I had in mind, my favorite, actually has you face to face with the guy. His arms are free so it seems like he's be able to do something but every time I've gotten it, it seems like the guy just kind of goes into panic mode from having a forearm pressing into his trachea. The first time I saw it was this really vicious WC guy fresh out of prison believe it or not. We were just "playing" not a fight mind you but he slapped that thing on me and pressed me to the wall so fast it made my head spin.
It also made a deep impression.
The first time I used it was in push hands. he he. Kind of outside the rules of what your supposed to do but hey. Maybe I can get someone at the gymn to pose for me tonight and I can get a pic to put up. I don't have any pointers on how to apply it but I HAVE applied it more than once.

I think you're talking about sode jime. Sleeve choke. Yoshida likes to use it, and Royce used it sometimes back in the day. One arm behind the neck, grabs the sleeve of the other arm and that arm goes in front of the neck and grabs the bicep cloth, and you kinda wheel down on their throat. You can do it no-gi as wel, but it is most effective with a gi.
You want some birth control? You can smoke a cigarette.

Oh yeah that works well... some BJJ/Krav Maga guy used it on me recently, and it's nasty.
He was kind of in side control. Instead of shifting to mount, he kind of drove his shoulder/chest into my head at an angle to expose my throat.
Didn't even see it coming. :(

Mikus, you've nailed it exactly. As I was reading you post I was thinking...*yeah, but I don't wear a gi I sort of just hook my hand at the crook of the elbow and . . .oh* then you go on to mention how you can do it gi-less.
I didn't find any one who seemed open to posing for a pic but I did get to review it tonight so it's fresh in my memory. You a Judo guy Mikus? That's twic you've helped me out with the name for a technique I already liked. So today I realized I have FOUR great ways to choke somebody.
2. Reverse Choke.
4. Sode Jime
I think what I like best about it is the way it feels so aggressive. Like a bully going right for the throat. Feels mean and really in your face. RNC seems like a puss out in comparison.

yeah I want to learn to wrestle, but whenever I goto the library and check out the 'wrestling' books, I always see these sweaty, near naked guys 'playing' with each other in spandax shorts and I always think "wow that looks really homosexual" and then I get home and read bullshido and it makes me insecure and then I go back to the library and repeat that previous thing... damn you bullshido! your too... ... .. uhh... ahh Im to lazy to think of the word right now :D

Omar, yes I'm a judo guy. I'm probably gonna start BJJ when I move up to Santa Cruz in a couple months, as my shoulders can't take the standup too much. I've gotta bulk up for 6 months or a year and then maybe I'll get back to the judo.
Here's the best pic I could find. It's not that good though. The person is going for it, but does not yet have it locked in.

Damn pic doesn't work. Just copy and paste this:

They really should replace the singlet with something more modern. C'mon though, nobody is going to think you are gay for wearing the spandex. MMA fighters wear those funky little underwear looking things. Nobody thinks they are gay.

well, they might think their gay, but they would never say so face to face, same applies for any very large guy who is built and knows how to fight :D lol
Neutral, or nearly so
