Applying a standing armbar is legal though, provided you don't turn it into a takedown.
I've heard of a couple of high-level competitors who've made them into bread-and-butter techniques, but normally I only see them used as a threat to break a grip.

that's somewhat surprising. what is the advantage of doing a standing gi choke? i have tried a collar choke in randori, and it never works out. it seems like you would leave yourself open to various sacrifice throws and trips.
the only standing choke i find practical is a guillotine.

Breaks/destructions are 'snapped' as was mentioned.
"locks" are smoother and usually have steadily increasing pressure (even if it is really fast when done by a pro).
That looked like an unintential 'break'....adrenaline is good for strength and speed under pressure BUT it can lead to some misreads when you are under the influence.
How many here have banged someone and didn't feel like they were working that hard.....

One of the guys I train with went to the FL state Judo comp in Tallahassee last year and actually had a guy in a standing key lock, the guy wouldn't tap so he cranked and dislocated the guys elbow while simultaneously breaking his own arm at the same time. But he won the match at least."Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration." -A. Lincoln
