    cross lapel chokes

    Mikus et al.: You're not going to get cross choked from combat anyway.

    The palm&gi into the throat is good. I've not had to worry about getting armbarred from it because, well you're already getting chocked. They have to quit the choke to switch to an armbar. You're also crushing their trachea which seems to distract people.

    This is with the caveat though that I only ever roll with blues.

    Also, I sparred with a blue belt and observed the corollary of the above rule:

    You avoid attacks from the guard by keeping proper posture.

    We started from standing and he pulled guard on me pronto. I heard Eduardo and some others yelling "Gah, don't let him close guard!" I just looked up and said "No problem" and smiled. I heard a blue belt saying "Listen to that, 'no problem', he says. Let's see him back that up."

    I just made sure I kept proper posture, returning to it whenever he got me out of it. I passed his guard, got side control and then mount. He rolled me and I got an armbar from the guard. :cool:

    You obviously don't read my training log, wherein I spend most of my time talking about getting choked out by white belts.

    I was just being a dick. And no, I did not read it.

    I wanted to let you know that I've been using this. I actually learned it when I was a 3 week white belt, but had forget about it until you reminded me. Thanks. :cool:

    On the subject of collar chokes from the guard, my instructor actually had us drill them because "I know a lot of you will say they don't work from the guard, but I've seen purple and browns belts use them on each other, so why not at least try them if they are there."

    I have Barret Yoshida's triangle and armbar tape.

    All attacks from the crooked guard.

    Hit me up in email if you want it, subfigther@gmail.com

    Yes crooked guard.

    Left leg goes over the right shoulder and closes with right ankle.

    Makes it very easy to do armbars and triangles.

    Is this is position you start most triangles with, where they have one arm in and one arm out?
